Alvin Lee: Alvin Thrills the U.S. Army Freaks

Jonh Ingham, New Musical Express, 28 December 1974

ALVIN LEE is a deceptive character. He's never really worked at making his presence felt in the way Rod Stewart or Elton John have done, nor has he really quested for any Spokesman of the Guitar award. Critics find him generally dismissable — especially in America — and yet TYA could fill any of that country's 20,000-seat Hippodromes with ease.
