(Vocal/instrumental group, 1967–present)

This UK rock band from Nottingham, comprising Chick Churchill (keyboards), Alvin Lee (guitar, vocals), Ric Lee (drums) and Leo Lyons (bass), emerged as a vehicle for Alvin Lee’s speed-demon playing. Their sound was most notably captured on the Woodstock soundtrack in an 11-minute version of the group’s signature song, ‘Goin’ Home’. They toured the US 28 times and are ably represented by the CD Anthology 1967–1971. The classic line-up lasted until 1975, when Alvin Lee left, however the band reformed in 1989.
