The beginning of their meteoric rise to fame can be pinpointed to their performance at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in August 1969. The band broke up in 1974, but reunited a couple of times the decades after. Initially, this included the enigmatic frontman Alvin Lee, later they toured with various different guitarists and singers. In 2013, to the great shock and surprise of the remaining founder members, Alvin Lee died from complications during a routine medical procedure.

In 2014 founder members Ric Lee and Chick Churchill (wanting to keep the memory of the band alive and pay tribute to the legendary albums they made with Alvin Lee over the years) put Ten Years After back together with a new line-up. They were keen to record a studio album that showcases this exciting new lineup that has been touring the world as Ten Years After to great critical acclaim over the last three and a half years. On this album, the band clearly captured that same energy and spontaneity in the studio that made the early TYA albums so magical.
