By the time of 1986's Detroit Diesel, Alvin Lee had settled down somewhat. No longer were his songs simply showcases for his astonishingly fast technique, and he was able to open his blues jams into funky grooves. That doesn't mean that Detroit Diesel is a particuarly remarkable album, but it does have more enjoyable moments, such as the Stonesy "Too Late to Run for Cover," than the average latter-day Lee album.
