Ten Years After 1967-1974 / 10CD box

Limited to 1500 copies • 9 albums + unheard studio tracks from ’72

1967-1974 is a new 10CD box set that celebrates 50 years since the eponymous debut album of British blues/rock band Ten Years After.

This collection gathers long-players from the Chrysalis and Deram eras and includes eight studio albums, one live album and a bonus disc of never before heard recordings from 1972 called The Cap Ferrat Sessions, which is newly mixed by producer Chris Kimsey. All the albums have been remastered from the original quarter-inch production master tapes.

The package comes in hardcover book format (with slipcase) with extensive sleeve notes by Chris Welch. These notes include extensive interviews with the remaining band members, Alvin Lee’s family, and there is additional recording notes by Kimsey.

The unreleased material – The Cap Ferrat Sessions – exists thanks to Alvin Lee’s wife, who discovered a box of recordings in their house in Spain. Chris Kimsey recorded and engineered these tracks originally (they formed part of the Rock N Roll Music To The World sessions) which is why Chrysalis Records turned to him to mix them for the first time. Cap Ferrat is in the South of France, situated between Nice and Monaco.

Kimsey has set the record straight in terms of the quality of these newly-found tracks: “Alvin and the band were incredibly creative and abundant during this period. These re-discovered recordings were not rough demos, not rehearsals, but completed masters that did not make the album due to the time limitations of vinyl at the time. So these gems were left off. Mixing this in 2017 I began to study the parts, the playing, the response of each musician. It was amazing! It is what all great recordings are made of.”

Ten Years After 1976-1974 is limited to 1,500 copies worldwide and will be released on 22 December 2017.
