iTunes Editors’ Notes

This well-selected “Best Of” collection includes highlights from what should probably be considered the group’s middle years of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, with tracks coming from such solid TYA albums as Ssssh, Cricklewood Green, Watt and A Space in Time. Aside from the great texture of “50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain” and their hit single “I’d Love to Change the World,” the album focuses on the group’s tough blues and hard-rock side. Little Richard’s “Going Back to Birmingham” from the much underrated Positive Vibrations album, Chuck Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen” and blues stomps like “I Woke Up This Morning” and “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl” display the gymnastic guitar licks of Alvin Lee along with the fabulous keyboard work from Chick Churchill. Of course, “I’m Going Home” in a live representation, is pretty necessary as well, considering it’s the tune that made their name in England and was one of the highlights of the Woodstock Festival here in the U.S.
