TEN YEARS AFTER to release 50th Anniversary box set incl. 'Lost' tracks

Ten Years After - 1967 - 1974 thumb
To coincide with the Ten Years After's eponymous debut release in 1967 Chrysalis Records are proud to present a 50th Anniversary 10 CD Box Set. This limited edition set includes a CD of previously unreleased material.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, on November 10th, Chrysalis Records will release a brand new 10 CD Box Set, gathering for the first time, albums from both the Chrysalis and Deram periods from 1967 to 1974.

This box set, limited to 1,500 copies worldwide, includes albums that have been remastered from the original 1/4" production master tapes along with the bonus disc of previously unreleased tracked entitled "The Cap Ferrat Sessions", which consists of never heard before recordings from 1972, newly mixed by acclaimed record producer Chris Kimsey. Fans can pre-order the box set from Pledge - https://TYA.lnk.to/Pledge.

The package comes in a luxury hardback format with slipcase and an accompanying book which includes newly commissioned in-depth 10,000 word sleeve notes written by legendary Melody Maker journalist and early champion of the band, Chris Welch, charting the band's progress from their early beginnings in Nottingham, through iconic appearances at the Woodstock and the Isle of Wight festivals, right up to their eventual split in 1974. There are extensive interviews with the remaining band members plus members of Alvin Lee's family, and additional recording notes by Chris Kimsey.

"I'm genuinely excited about the new Ten Years After box set that we've been working on with Chrysalis due for release in November to celebrate the band's 50th Anniversary," says Ten Years After's founding drummer, Ric Lee.

Continues Ric, "The box includes nine studio albums and a bonus CD that features the previously unreleased live album 'The Cap Ferrat Sessions'. Originally recorded in 1972 in the South of France using The Rolling Stones Mobile recording truck, the session tracks were gathering dust until now. I remember we recorded the live tracks in a villa in Cap Ferrat, South of France. Each of the instruments were recorded in a different room - drums in the ballroom. Between Chris Kimsey, our recording engineer and I, we managed to get one of the best drum sounds on any Ten Years After recording. Natural ambience from the villa's acoustics helped tremendously. The session tracks were originally planned for the 'Rock N Roll Music To The World' album, but due to vinyl restrictions of the time, the tracks were not included in the final album release. More details are on the sleeve notes written for us by Chris Kimsey, who kindly agreed to mix the tracks for this boxed set release 45 years after they were recorded. This is a must-have collection for any avid Ten Years After fan, and any new fans that want to soak up the band's recorded history."
