Biography

Trower grew up in the seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea, Essex. In 1962, Trower formed a group that became The Paramounts, later including fellow Southend High School pupil Gary Brooker. The Paramounts disbanded in 1966 to pursue individual projects. During this time, Trower created a local three-piece band called 'The Jam' - not to be confused with the later group with Paul Weller. ... Read more in Amazon's Robin Trower Store

Format: Audio CD
"Back It Up", the album, represents some of the very best of Robin Trower and should be in every Trower fan's collection. It will be argued here that it is the best complete album since 1974's well-known "Bridge of Sighs".
Some of the highlights of the original "Back It Up" album include the grittiness and forcefulness of the leadoff title track, "Back It Up", followed perfectly by James Dewar's soulful lyrics and the easily accessible tune on "The River", and the pick-up-the-pace power of the third track, "Black to Red". Some other favorites of this writer are the driving rhythm of "Settle the Score", and the electrifying guitar work at the close of "None But the Brave". This song ends with an exciting barrage of Trower's guitar which too soon fades out, leaving one muttering to himself, "Hot, hot--that was so hot!"
But alas, one is only left with the empty feeling of wanting to start a crusade to find the inventor of such a musical fadeout and properly pulverize the idiot!
As an album, "Back It Up" has an honesty that is missing from the previous effort, "Victims of the Fury". Although "Victims" had some very good material, notably "Madhouse" and "Roads to Freedom", most of that album did not conect with this writer in the same emotional way of "Back It Up". I can't adequately explain why, but I think this difference can best be described as the total of the spirit and force making up the album. Whatever "Victims" lacked in depth, Trower and Dewar made up for with a vengeance on "Back It Up".

when i first saw this in the shop i thought it was gonna be a bit dry and weak since it was a 1983 album. i thought that a true 70's guitarist might turn a bit funny in the 80's like many others but no. this album sounds like it was made in '75 or something. one of his best ever. 'River' has got to be one of my favourite tracks ever. so singable. if you like Robin Trower or rock/blues in general, you have to have this album.

This CD is worth the cover price for the unsurpassable 'Benny Dancer' not to mention the other tracks. I think this is a great guitar album. I cannot survive without hearing 'Benny Dancer'on a regular basis, and if you have never 'got down' to this track, then you are in for a treat. Life doesn't get much better than listening to this track. Try watching a sunset over the sea horizon, taking a drink or two, and ENJOY!

Dewar's last 25 Jun. 2003
By Roland Kurz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great recording. Fantastic guitar playing, especially on BENNY DANCER. This album is very much overlooked in Trower circles, and I am not sure why. Last record with the great Jimmy Dewar, and definately the end of an era. Trower would a few years later reinvent himself, recruiting Davey Pattison on vocals, and resurge his career in the late 1980's.

Dewar's Last... 1 Jan. 2006
By njrobbo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Back It Up is a good tune, but I think River speaks volumes about the record. Benny Dancer has some awesome riffs & Time Is Short shows some great chemistry between Trower & Dewar. Islands is a sweet, slow groove tune which is ALL Trower with a hint of his Hendrix influence. Captain Midnight & Settling the Score are great complimentary pieces that round out the album nicely. Sounds like a record that might have come out in the mid to late 70's. Definitely overlooked & underrated.

My Personal favorite Trower Album 23 Aug. 2009
By Robert M. Lisanti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off..I'm a BIG Trower fan since 1979 the first time I heard Bridge of Sighs I was Amazed and Hooked on Trowers music. Well 1983 when this came out and The first time I heard Benny Dancer I was simply blown away at this Amazing guitarist even more. I have seen Trower on almost every tour and he never disappoints.

This was the last time James Dewar played on a Trower record and that's another reason why it's a "Special" album. The standout tracks are "Benny Dancer" which is almost 9 minutes of Guitar solo bliss, "Time is Short", the instrumental "Islands" and "River" which has a nice calm feel to it.

Trower is one of the most under rated guitar players out there...well if you listen to Benny Dancer that should change your opinion a bit.

Here is a link to my tribute to Trower with the song Benny Dancer.

Another Masterpiece! 2 Jan. 2000
By Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This disc is well overdue! Robin Trower is one of the best guitarists in the past 30 years. But the real un-sung hero on most of his recordings is vocalist and sometimes bassist James Dewar. His final album with Trower is another gem. He ranks with some of the more well known vocalists such as Paul Rodgers, Ian Gillan and Jack Bruce. He's surely missed in the music world to this day.
