Detective - Reissues album review

Album Review

Or should that be ‘Defective’?

Why Michael Des Barres has only ever enjoyed fleeting glimpses of fame is one of rock’s great mysteries. The English toff had a charmed start to his career with London-based Silverhead, enjoying the patronage of Deep Purple and being signed to the band’s own Purple Records label. The loon-panted frontman and self-styled ‘swashfuckler’ then moved to Los Angeles and went one better with Detective, who were snaffled up by Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song label.
