5.0 out of 5 stars Unknown and under-rated 18 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first heard this album in a car on the way back from playing a gig in Manchester and was totally blown away by it. At the time I had not really heard much of Ten Years After or Alvin Lee ( apart,ofcourse, from the demented live rendition of 'Goin' Home' at Woodstock)but was very much impressed by the inventive, colourful and fast guitar solo work. Being a fan of guitarists such as Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy), Joe Satriani and Donal Rhoeser (Blue Oyster Cult), this album fitted very nicely into my collection.
'Rocket Fuel' has a much more rock defined sound than the earlier offerings by Ten Years After - this is probably because Alvin got to pick his own line up for the backing band Ten Years Later - as can be heard right from the start in the title track. Tracks 2, 5 & 7 (Gonna Turn You On, Ain't Nothing Shakin'& Baby Don't You Cry) are typical Alvin good time boogie numbers - upbeat and light with a sense of humour - whereas track 4 (Somebody Callin' Me) is definately a little more moody, leading as it does into The Somebody Waltz which is a nice stage for not only a more intricate playing style from Mr Lee, but also show cases the bass of Mick Hawksworth and the drumming of Tom Compton.Track 6 is 'Alvin's Blue Thing' and that really says it all.Track 3, however, is a much darker proposition with an almost schizophrenic twist between verses, choruses and instrumental bridges. The clincher on the album is the darkest of all though. The Devil's Screaming (track 8) could easily have been recorded in one of Dante's hells and has an apocolyptic feel all the way through leading to an end which is pure occult.
Although Alvin Lee doesn't have the best voice in the recording business, it suits all the material on 'Rocket Fuel' and the album as a package is a must for anyone who appreciates good guitar based combos and solos. Alvin Lee must be one of the most unknown and under-rated axemen of the past 30 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars rocket fuel burns fast 10 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
an excellent Alvin Lee work from 1978 - with "Ten Years Later". this is the first I've seen it on Cd {except for mine burned off the record}! Great guitar riffs Alvin Lee style in "rocket fuel" and "ain't nothing shakin" for example. also an ethereal piece called "the devil's screaming - part 1 and 2". A must for all Alvin Lee fans if you can get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent C.D. 27 Aug 2000
By Robert nordberg - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a must c.d. for all Alvin Lee fans,I forgot how well Alvin sounded on this one. His driving rythem guitar along with Tom Compton's drumming are a great mix, especally on Ain't nothing shaking.If you can get past just listing to Alvin's blistering solo, listen to Tom's superb drumming.The best C.D. I have bought in some time. I'm no music critic, I just love to listen to GREAT music and I would highly recommend this one.Try it and you will not be dissapointed.

By Craig Kountz - Published on
Format:Audio CD
this was the 2nd cd in a two for order i recieved from Amazon by

Alvin Lee. this truly is some good "old school" rock n roll. i wish more people would get to know the music of Alvin Lee. he really got very little air play in the U.S. but he is well worth the price of admission. listen to him for good old fashion rock n roll. great cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic Alvin Lee album 31 Aug 2003
By R. Bauer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Somebody's Waltz is one of Lee's best instrumental works. Ain't Nothin' Shakin' is absolutely frantic guitar and bass interaction. Baby Don't You Cry No More is one of his catchier tunes also. A must for any Alvin fan.
