• detroit Detroit (CD, £10.50)

    label: akarma

    Reissue of 1971 album. It opens with the roar of 'Long Neck Goose' and Mitch Ryder returns to Detroit with a band named after his city, one that should have been as big as Boston, Chicago, or even that ensemble named after a state, Kansas. Detroit the group rocks grittier than any of the above, and though household recognition eluded them, the album is revered and far more important than the wandering Dave Marsh's original liner notes dared speculate. The entire album is a keeper, with the slow blues of 'Drink' and the concluding passions in 'I Found A Love.'
