Magical Highs is a love story of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.

Loraine Burgon and Alvin Lee were childhood sweethearts, sharing the thrills and spills as Alvin and Ten Years After enjoyed major international success between 1967 and 1974.

Loraine had a ringside seat as Alvin's group The Jaybirds became local heroes in their home town of Nottingham. Together they moved to London where the group became TYA and Alvin was recognized as a leading rock guitarist, alongside Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

Loraine was alongside Alvin as Ten Years After enjoyed success of the UK, Europe and, finally, the USA where the group toured 28 times. In 1969 she watched from the side of the stage as TYA played a starring role in the legendary Woodstock Festival.

In the meantime, Loraine oversaw the lifestyle changes as she and Alvin moved from a tiny London flat to a vast country mansion, befriending other rock stars and enjoying mind-expanding drugs. When it all became too much, the relationship fell apart.

If you've ever wondered what it's really like to be the partner of a rock superstar, Magical Highs is the book for you.

Illustrated with previously unseen photographs from Loraine's private collection.
