 In 1982 Detour released a demo, Detour which contained some of their lesser known hits such as "​Mausoleum",​ "Take It Now", "​Borrowed Time", "Take My Life", "If I Could Only Find You", And "New Life". Which they used for marketing and selling their name for no profit. The band toured southern California for several years always playing open doors meaning they never charged for entry. Don felt that the Lord gave freely so the gospel should always be free no matter what form it takes on. He still holds true to this belief to this days siting the scripture by Christ Himself in Matthew 10:8 "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have various diseases, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give." Their 1986 eponymous debut was produced by Firewatch Records and entitled "Last Call". While the title of the album is Last Call, The title track was never added due to a dispute with the owner of the recording studio. The band, however frequently performed the title song at every concert event since the albums release. The album contained only six tracks including "​Prodigal",​ "​LP-3"​ (Named for the co-writer Lewis Putnam, as this was his third contributing song written by him), "​Isolation",​ "​BMW",​ "New Life" and "​Don'​t Wait So Long". The group soon became very well known for their songs "​BMW"​ and "​Mausoleum"​. While Detour was visually similar to other alternative Christian bands at the time, it was distinguished by three elements: the vocals of Don Fraser, the songwriting of Don and Lewis Putnam, and the guitar techniques of Lewis Putnam and Eric Turner of Darrell Mansfield and Gentile Faith. The band's sound was in not typical of competent 1980's Christian bands, but their lyrics were distinctly Christian. Themes often included Armageddon, hope and victory in Christ, and the Grace of living in God, with Biblical language throughout. Often found throughout their songs such as "​Mausoleum,"​ "​BMW,"​ "​Prodigal,"​ "​Isolation."​ During his time with the band, Don Fraser Performed Solo and as a Duet with Lewis Putnam and has since recorded a third album entitled "​Psalmests Cry" Produced by Don and Lewis. This album while it didn't sell as well as their previous, did however manage to land two of their songs "When I hold you" and "​Don'​t Turn Away" on the weekly rotation with KBLD 91.7FM in the Tri-Cities, Washington for two years. In 1982 Detour released a demo, Detour which contained some of their lesser known hits such as "​Mausoleum",​ "Take It Now", "​Borrowed Time", "Take My Life", "If I Could Only Find You", And "New Life".
