Guitar legend ALBERT LEE first came to prominence during a 1964-68 stint in British Blues and R & B stalwarts Chris Farlowes Thunderbirds. His reputation grew and session work blossomed, including appearances on The London Bo Diddley Sessions for Chess and Jerry Lee Lewis The London Sessions. This and other work with U.S. based greats led to a permanent position in the Crickets. The move to California also led to work on sessions for the debut album of Jackson Browne. Lee joined Joe Cockers band in the mid-70s, a time that included recordings for the April 1976 release Stingray. From there A & M Records signed Albert as an artist in his own right. The solo albums completion was delayed by constant studio and touring work, primarily in Emmylou Harris Hot Band; in 1976. The Emmylou Harris albums Luxury Liner (Jan. 1977), Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town (Jan. 1978) Blue Kentucky Girl (April 1979), Roses in the Snow (May 1980, recorded July 1979), and Evangeline (Jan 1981, recorded 1978-80) all include Albert. He ended his touring tenure with the Hot Band to complete his solo album, and Hiding was finally released in 1979.
An invitation around the Christmas season in 1978 led to a five-year adventure for Albert in Eric Claptons band. The live album Just One Night, recorded at Budokan in December 1979, was the first release (April 1980) to feature Albert. Another Ticket (Feb. 1981), Time Pieces Vol 2-Live in the 70s (1983), and Money and Cigarettes (Feb. 1983) all were part of Alberts tenure with Eric. When the Everly Brothers reunited on September 23, 1983 at Londons Royal Albert Hall, Albert was on hand as guitarist and Musical Director. He continued in that role for over 20 years until the Brothers retired.
