iTunes Editors’ Notes

After establishing its reputation as a ferocious blues-boogie combo, Ten Years After reined in its excesses and delivered its most popular album with 1971’s A Space in Time. Frontman Alvin Lee tones down his trademark guitar flash for a more subtle approach that emphasizes his acoustic playing as much as his electric work. His bandmates turn in equally tasty performances, with Chick Churchill standing out for his dexterous keyboards. In place of sprawling jams, A Space in Time features well-crafted pop/rock tunes that retain the band’s rootsy underpinnings. Tracks like “One of These Days,” “Once There Was a Time," and “Hard Monkeys” are lean, muscular rockers with taut arrangements. “Over the Hill” drapes the band in neatly tailored strings, while “Baby Won’t You Let Me Rock ‘N’ Roll You” veers into rockabilly territory and “Uncle Jam” adds jazz to the mix. The key track is “I’d Love to Change the World,” a moody meditation on cultural upheaval that earned TYA its sole U.S. hit single. Though lacking some of the wild instrumental fireworks of the band’s earlier albums, A Space in Time stands on its own for its catchy songs and collective musical excellence.
