Big Red at Woodstock

We’ve been trying to figure out which stickers were on Alvin’s guitar ‘Big Red’ at Woodstock, when the guitar still had the dot neck and Bigsby… looks like there were only four of them in total. Does anybody have clear pictures showing details, particularly of the two stickers which were removed at some point in time? Please email to our 'booking' email address if you can help - thanks!

UNDEAD - expanded Vinyl release

Last year also saw the release of a ‘Deluxe’ vinyl edition of ‘Ten Years After’- UNDEAD by the label Music On Vinyl

The addition of more tracks recorded on that day at Klooks Kleek is going to delight any fan of early TYA material. However, the changed running order of the songs – which means that vinyl side B starts with the drum solo (!?!) and inserting the additional tracks in what feels like some kind of haphazard fashion - won't sit right with anybody familiar with the original release.

TYA - WATT re-release on vinyl

The original album ‘Ten Years After’ – WATT has been re-relased on vinyl by the Netherlands based record label Music On Vinyl

Although the official release date was just over a year ago we only recently laid our hands on a copy and must say it is a very fine release indeed, confirming the memory of how good it sounded when listening to it before the age of digital music.
