Remembering British "blues boom" guitarist ALVIN LEE who died suddenly on Wednesday.  From a blistering performance of "I'm Going Home" at Woodstock, to the American Top 40 and the anthemic single "I'd Love To Change The World," Lee and his group created some of the finest music at the heart of the Classic Rock era, 1966-74.  We'll hear career-defining moments in Lee's vinyl catalog, from the debut album in 1967 to his final solo release from just last August.
