Ten Years After 2017 Box Set Remasters To Be Issued Individually

Good news!!

In 2017, near the end of the year, the resurrected Chrysalis Records scheduled a 50th Anniversary Box of remastered albums for Ten Years After. The set, named Ten Years After 1967-1974 was, in essence, a celebration of their complete works, magnificent as they are. The box featured then new remastering (2017). The Box actually surfaced in January of 2018. Until now, if you wanted any of those albums, you had to acquire the box (which is still the ideal way given the added bonuses of a book, and a CD of previously unreleased songs. Now:

On April 20, Chrysalis will break out the CDs for individual purchase. They will reintroduce the 2017 remasters of classic albums:

  • Watt
  • Ssssh
  • Rock and Roll Music To The World
  • Positive Vibrations
  • Cricklewood Green
  • A Space In Time
  • Currently, Ten Years After, Undead, and Stonehenged have not been “officially” announced although their release along with the above listed seems assured.

All CDs will feature the 2017 remasters and other goodness, all presented in six-panel digipak packaging.


New 50th Anniversary 10CD Box For Ten Years After, 1967-1974

It’s always great to see one of your favorites bands getting nice treatment, especially so far away from their active years. For fans, the name of Ten Years After is one that draws great memories. From their dynamic showcase at Woodstock through a few singles and LP releases, Ten Years After certainly has earned their place in the sun. (We won’t talk about the inefficiencies of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.)

During their time, not counting the years after their first dismantling, they have released eight classic albums beginning with Ten Years After (1967), and ending with Positive Vibrations (1974). In between, the band delivered greatness with “I’d Love To Change The World”, “Rock and Roll Music To The World”, “Love Like A Man”, “I’m Going Home”, and “Choo Choo Mama” (to name just a few).  A brief but powerful tenure in the annals of Rock!

On December 22, Chrysalis Records will assemble a 10CD 50th Anniversary Box celebrating the band. The Box is being labeled as 1967-1974. This box will provide a total of 82 songs, most newly remastered for this limited edition set of only 1500 copies. Of course, every song from their Deram and Columbia catalog is represented here. (No Recorded Live! Sigh!)

This box set also includes previously unreleased music on a single CD.

Expanded And Remastered Deluxe Edition Recorded Live From Ten Years After Is Coming (and something else!)

While it may not have been known news outside of my post on Tuesday, where I was unsure of specifics, it can now be said that Recorded Live, the transcendent 1973 live album from Ten Years After is, in fact, going to be an awesome reality.

My original post is as follows:

“Rhino/Parlophone have a surprise title on the list for October 8.  If any of you were fans of Ten Years After, and gave their 1973 classic Live album, Recorded Live any kind of needle play, then you will be very excited (perhaps as much as I am, maybe even more) to know that Recorded Live is likely being revisited in a 2CD set.  But that’s all I know about this one.  But bear in mind that the original title was a Columbia Records one.  And so this may just be confusing news.  The release title is genuine, but will it be the one we know and love?  I’ll let you know.”

I have received confirmation that not only is this upcoming Deluxe Edition of Recorded Live going to happen, but that it will contain bonus tracks, seven of ’em!  (You can check out the extra tracks below.)  The album is going to be remastered (making it a must have!), and will contain a new deluxe booklet with liner notes by David K Tedds, who also serves as the project consultant for this reissue.


This is an album that I listened to for HOURS on its original release.  I can’t wait for the chance to do it again.

So, if you’re a Ten Years After fan, pencil in October 8 to insure that you pick up an exciting reissue of Recorded Live.

But there is more Ten Years After news.

TenYearsAfterPositiveVibrationsNot only is Recorded Live on the near release horizon, but the band’s classic Positive Vibrations (1974) is being made into a Deluxe Edition as well.  The album, as with Recorded Live, will be remastered.  There are going to be bonus track inclusions for this reissue too, but not outtakes, alternate versions of familiar songs, demos, or rehearsal cuts from the album sessions.  The reason for this is because there are none to be found.  However, there are outtakes from the Recorded Live release that will be added here including a performance track of “Sweet Little Sixteen” from a show in Atlanta in 1970.

Positive Vibrations Deluxe Edition will come with a deluxe booklet, with new historical liner notes, and such.  And honestly, more Recorded Live performance tracks is gonna be pretty awesome, if you ask me.  There’s another version of “I’m Going Home” from Paris, “Rock And Roll Music To the World” from Frankfurt, and more, including a short radio ad for Positive Vibrations tacked on at the end of the second disc. Here’s the Track-list:

Disc 1: POSITIVE VIBRATIONS (original album)

1. Nowhere To Run 3:58
2. Positive Vibrations 4:14
3. Stone Me 4:53
4. Without You 3:57
5. Going Back To Birmingham  2:36
6. It’s Getting Harder  4:22
7. You’re Driving Me Crazy  2:23
8. Look Into My Life  4:14
9. Look Me Straight Into The Eyes  6:18
10. I Wanted To Boogie  3:33

Disc 2: BONUS TRACKS (previously unreleased)

1. Rock & Roll Music To The World (Frankfurt) 4:26
2. Once There Was A Time (Frankfurt) 3:53
3. Help Me (Frankfurt) 13:06
4. One Of These Days (Paris) 9:15
5. Spoonful (Paris) 6:30
6. I’m Going Home (Paris) 11:39
