Came To Be:
many years Brigitte collected magazines and newspaper clippings and put
them into an old wooden box that she kept. I (Dave) had my own
collection of material, flyers, posters, books and magazines.
We combined the two collections, we bought other fans collections,
and then began the projects that you will enjoy now.
all they were, bits and pieces of a Ten Years After / Alvin
Lee History that was saved, but also a legacy of a band in
fragments. So we started by putting what we had on our pages.
Little by little.
The band formed in 1967 and continues to
this day 4/20/11 which gives us an endless supply of material to
use. In the beginning it was fun and a real joy to go through
everything, discover photos, articles and reviews that
we’ve never seen before.
wanted to provide the best and finest chronological order
In other words, an article from say a
“Sounds” newspaper needed to have the original
cover in the same spot as the article itself. If there were photos to go with it, place

Brigitte and I, it’s a labor of love. It’s a work in
progress. It’s for all of you with our thanks. We’ll continue to collect, organize and present the
material that adds to the whole Ten Years After story. You will

the same photo shoots.

and sometimes backgrounds. When placing articles in order by
date, this also excelled our enthusiasm. Or when
