    Cricklewood Green is my favourite but Sssh! is also pretty good. Stondhenge and Undead are also really good :)

    Yeah they've got a whole bunch of great albums!

    Doesn't have the best individual tracks per se' but Stonedhenge is the king of the heap for me. As far as psychedelic freakout albums go (so, like, Satanic Majesties, Sgt Pepper) Stonedhenge is my favorite. TYA's heavy jazz influence gave the record a darker, smoother, cooler feel as opposed to the more rock and orchestral style that a lot of bands did for their psychedelic material.

    Love TYA ... I really like their s/t album but I really love the songs Spoonful & Help me (If I see either tune on an album I tend to buy them...). I probably said this on this thread earlier but when I first saw the Woodstock movie in the late 70's Alvin Lee & TYA were the heroes of Woodstock to me. I was more blown away by their performance then Hendrix or the Who.

    I'm guessing that the Woodstock movie was where I first heard them in 1970.Immediately bought there most current albums and played the hell out of Shhhh, Cricklewood Green and Watt. Those are what I consider their prime albums. The earlier material I thought was from a band still improving. A Space In Time was decent.The 1973 Recorded Live was my favorite concert disc of theirs

    Also really liked On The Road To Freedom, the Alvin Lee/Mylon Lefevre collaboration
