Dennis Coffey and the Detroit Guitar Band, Evolution, Sussex SXBS 7004, 1971.

“… Now, with the advent of the fuzz tone, sustainers, and wa-wa pedals the flexibility and tonal possibilities of the guitar are much broader. Evolution of the guitar has lead to this album. With the exception of drums and piano, multi-voice guitars have been used to produce the accompaniments rather than the moog, horns or strings. … The album is not electronic gimmickery, but rather, hard and heavy impact music. IT IS THE PEAK FOR THE GUITAR. IT IS THE GUITAR BAND. IT IS EVOLUTION.”

I saw this at a garage sale for a quarter and I couldn’t pass it up. I mean, The Detroit Guitar Band! Michigan is the home of The Motor City Madman Ted Nugent, John Lee Hooker, MC5, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Insane Clown Posse, and Motown! Overall, it’s not bad, there’s some pretty good and funky musicianship on display, but it doesn’t live up to the hype on the back cover.
