Alvin Lee & Mylon Le Fevre - On The Road To Freedon (1973 US)


Alvin Lee dejó Ten Tears After en el mejor momento de la banda y se embarcó en un proyecto independiente que, de alguna manera, lo relegó a un segundo plano de la escena. Su primer disco sin el grupo lo editó en 1973, en compañía del cantante de southern soul Mylon Lefevre y se llamó "On The Road To Freedom" ( En el camino hacia la libertad).
Explicación del mismo Alvin Lee.....
“Después del éxito de Ten Years After en el festival de Woodstock, decidí seguir mi camino, en libertad, en vez de la opción aparente de la fama y la fortuna. Esa fue la decisión que tomé para escapar de la carrera y la responsabilidad comercial que imponía la industria discográfica. Yo por entonces tenía miedo de morirme antes de cumplir los 30 años. Sólo quería tocar la música que sentía y no la que le exigía el mercado."
Asi, Alvin nos entrega un disco de canciones reposadas, etiqueta country-rock, casi acústico, a pesar de las grandes colaboraciones de músicos amigos.

I have this album through long years and is my favorite to today!
Alvin Lee is an exciting guitarist, blessed with nimble fingers, a fantastic turn of speed and a passion for the blues. As a performer, he ranks in popularity with the other great guitar heroes of the golden rock era, including Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Jimmy Page. His style is simpler and more direct than many of his peers, but there is no doubting his consummate ability. He was called the fastest guitarist in the world. Probably because of the ultra-fast solos in "I'm Going Home" - a composition group Ten Years After, which is a group of fat Alvin Lee headed for her years. It was a little over forty years ago, so in an era in which many "musicians" well cut out the guitars - such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.

That's when he recorded 'On The Road To Freedom' with Mylon LeFevre. He also drew upon the services of his good friend and neighbour, former Beatle, the late George Harrison, who wrote and performed on the track 'So Sad (No Love Of His Own)'. George was a great admirer of Alvin's guitar playing and enjoying visiting the latter's home studio. The pair became good friends, although there was no attempt to overplay George's presence on the album... He mourned the death of George Harrison in November 2001 and is proud that George's song, 'So Sad (No Love Of His Own)', is part of an album that recalls the carefree days of rock'n'roll fun - and freedom.

Alvin invited many other like-minded musical mates to take part in the sessions. For example, the core members of Traffic - Steve Winwood (piano), Rebop (congas) and Jim Capaldi (drums) - appear in various combinations on several songs, playing on the title track and also on 'Fallen Angel', 'We Will Shine' and 'I Can't Take It'. Many a jam session stalwart turned up to enjoy the fun, including guitarist Ron Wood of the Faces and Rolling Stones fame. Ron and Alvin were joined by Mick Fleetwood and Ian Wallace (drums), Boz Burrell (bass), Mike Patto (vocals) and Tim Hinkley (keyboards) - all veterans of Fleetwood Mac, Patto and King Crimson. It would be hard to keep this lot away from the bar and a studio full of musical instruments. Mylon provided lead vocals on most of the tracks and wrote or cover half a dozen tunes with Alvin.

Big hugs Miguel!
