5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bluesy rock 18 April 2011
By Danny
Format:Audio CD
Alvin Lee delivers here a very under-estimated album.
Rocking, bluesy and sometimes jazzy, funky.
Worth listening to !
Remastered is a very good effort too.

3.0 out of 5 stars RIP Alvin 2013 6 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite guitarists from thew 70s bought again as it was a bargain.Will get played but TYA was a favourite band of mine and his solo output was probably not always up to the mark except the Blues compilation he bought out which was indicative of the good guitarist he was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock n' Roll As It Should Be! 13 Nov 2004
By tgfabthunderbird - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw Alvin Lee with a power trio at the old Tree Cafe in Portland, Maine in the summer of 87. It was a small club with little space on the floor, plus a balcony above. I ended up standing the whole show just to the left of the band, who were on a tiny stage.

The show was fantastic! He was promoting Detroit Diesel at the time, and I went out the next day and bought it.

He'd played several tracks from the album, plus some Ten Years After stuff, and I was hooked. The title track has a nasty guitar solo, "Just Another Night" and "Ordinary Man" are also really good tracks.

George Harrison added some great slide guitar to the heavy, slow "Talk Don't Bother Me." A good blues track.

This is no-frills rock and roll, good guitar work, Lee singing his guts out and a heavy drummer. Well worth it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad - 1987 Alvin Lee Release - But Not Up To Ten Years After Standards 13 Oct 2012
By Mark Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 1987 release by Alvin Lee - formerly of Ten Years After - is 10 songs, just over 39 minutes total, of straight up rockers.

I took a chance and bought this one without having heard it first. There's some decent material here but, for those of us who listened to Ten Years After back in the early 1970s, I'd suggest this one is not up to Ten Years After standards.

The material here is good, but not great.

If you're not familiar with Alvin Lee, start with some of the Ten Years After material first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alvin Lee's "Detroit Diesel"--2010-Re-Issue Cd 29 Mar 2011
By pawnshop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hi Everyone; Great Price on this Out of Print cd for awhile. This was the one the
was Re-Issued--in 2010. w/guest appearances with late George Harrison.
Too Bad there wasn't any Videos for this Cd.
"Detroit Diesel"--was the Single that was out. But with the
Hair Bands/Medal/and Power Pop--this didn't Cd/album really get enough air-play.
Oh well. Anyone that is a Alvin Lee Fan--should pick this up.
Got this Cd in the mail pretty quick. And the price was really good.
Thanks
Troy
