Alvin Lee: Lemme Out!

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 1 May 1976

AT 3PM, Alvin Lee, benevolent despot, was still asleep – he hadn't gone to bed until 9.30am – so it seemed a good excuse to take the obligatory tour of the grounds. The onions were coming up nicely in the expansive vegetable garden and the grape vines being sprayed by a gardener in one of the many greenhouses looked well established. The geraniums also seemed to be doing well.
