“Goin’ Home, My Baby!”

One of the most iconic music festivals and the only one of its kind, Woodstock was a celebration of the various countercultures that spawned some of the greatest musical acts the world has ever seen and will never see again. One such band that stole the show during those magical few days was British rock band Ten Years After, and their performance of ‘I’m Going Home’ absolutely brought the house down!

Vocalist and lead guitarist Alvin Lee was in rare form as he tore his way through this blues soaked classic, and while even he admitted before his death in 2013 that the solo in ‘I’m Going Home’ was a little rough that night, it definitely had all of the energy, passion, and attitude to make up for it.

Despite the many technical problems that plagued Ten Years After prior to the filming of this performance, the 12 minute encore that was ‘I’m Going Home’ demonstrated the power of Ten Years After, and especially the virtuosity of guitarist Alvin Lee. It serves as an awesome tribute to rock and roll and everything that’s ever made it great!

Goin’ home, my baby
