History

Formed in, 1967, the band received an invitation to play at the Windsor Jazz Festival, which led to a contract with Dream, a child company of Decca - the first band so signed without a hit single.

After touring Scandinavia and America, Ten Years After released their second album, Undead, which included the hit single "I'm Going Home." This was followed by Stonedhenge, a British hit. In 1969, they appear at the Newport Jazz Festival, in the first event to which rock bands were invited. In August, Ten years After performed a breakthrough American appearance at Woodstock.

During 1970, Ten Years After released "Love Like a Man," their first hit single in the UK. They are also featured in the documentary Woodstock, edited by Martin Scorsese.

In 1971, the band released the album A Space In Time, which featured their biggest hit, "I'd Love To Change The World", a hippie anthem of sorts, protesting the Vietnam War and possibly even capitalism itself. At this point in time, Ten Years After were in their heyday: at the beginning of their twelfth US tour, they played to a sold out Madison Square Garden to 20,000 fans.

Taking the second half of 1973 off to pursue side projects, news of a band breakup ran rampant, but the album Positive Vibrations was still recorded and released in 1974. After a tour of the UK, and their last tour (number 28) in the US, Ten Years After broke up.

Ten Years After reunited in 1983 for a tour of the UK, and in 1988 for several American concerts and a single album, About Time (1989).
