Ten Years After
I’ve written about Ten Years After twice before – but recently, I found a 45 by them I’d never been able to find for 40 years!
I read somewhere in approx. 1970 that there was a 45 of “Love Like A Man” (from their “Cricklewood Green” album) that had a lengthy live B-side – so lengthy, it was a 33 1/3 rpm single! The live B-side was recorded at the Fillmore East, and was never on a TYA LP – many years later, it came on a double CD “Live at the Fillmore East 1970” (released 2001). Maybe my mind clouded up – but I could’ve sworn it was said that the 45 of “Love Like A Man” was (also?) released as a 10”!

Both “Cricklewood Green” and “Watt” LP’s came with posters. I wonder who still has both of those? I do! Anybody out there ever seen a cover for “Cricklewood Green” with the statue flipping us off? I haven’t.

I have managed to get some nicer CD versions of several albums – in 2007, I got little paper album cover CD’s for their debut album and 2nd album “Stonedhenge”. More recently, I got British re-mastered CD’s for “Cricklewood Green” and “Watt”. I think “Watt” is probably my favorite all-round TYA album; I really dug it when I got it as a new album in 1970 – and it has stuck with me.
Were you ever a fan of Ten Years After? They were certainly one of the better
