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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rock Guitar Standard Setter 8 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
Robin Trower took a lot of stick in the 70s as a so called Hendix clone - I even remember getting a dozy letter published in the hallowed(?) Melody Maker in 1975, fighting his corner, bless - but he was always much better than that. After a 40 year plus career - he first made his mark with Procol Harum - this album remains his high water mark. Blasting off with Day of the Eagle (still a staple he plays in his live sets to this day), it moves through the moody title track to the wistful In This Place, where RT duels with bassist Jim Dewar's outstanding bluesy vocals (what an underrated and classy singer he was). Too Rolling Stoned (another perennial live classic) is the worthy centrepiece of the album, leading into a sensational finish with Lady Love (melodic, almost singles material, perish the thought!) and Little Bit of Sympathy, a suitably raucous album closer. Trower's fretwork is about feel, not flash, and his solos are from the heart. There's no risk in buying this one - and make sure you catch him live whilst you can. Essential listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Trower expanded 5 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
Bridge of Sighs is probably Robin Trower's most consistent album originally released in '74. Blues, funk and a heavy Hendrix influence featuring James Dewars rich vocals. The bonus tracks are from BBC sessions from John Peel and have livened the studio versions from this album and the later release For Earth Below. Well worth updating previous CD releases and a good place to start for the uninitiated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential rock/blues guitar pyrotechnics. 24 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a classic. Trower's keening and exhuberant guitar work defines the proceedings. There are powerful vocals and relentless driving bass and drums. Stand out track is Too Rolling Stoned". The opening section is full tilt raunch with big skirling chords. This segues into a long blues-drenched closing sequence dominated by field holler guitar phrases. All of the remaining tracks motor along to good effect with some great rock playing. This release is augmented by an interesting selection of recordings made for the John Peel radio show.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lesser known rock/blues classic! 23 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
for those of you who love the rock/blues genre but have not yet discovered the criminally under-rated robin trower,buy this classic record asap!! day of the eagle kicks off at a frantic pace dragging the listener straight in to the album,the songs cleverly arranged,slower tempo ending leads superbly into the atmospheric title track and in this place.the fool and me is a real romp and is followed by the 'jam like'maybe slightly bloated too rolling stoned.the classy/ethereal about to begin brings the best out of james dewars vocals.lady love is a real toe tapper with a simple but addictive riff,and the album is brought to a superb close with the quite brilliant little bit of sympathy.throughout the album,trowers guitar work matches anything done by messrs clapton,page,hendrix and is worthy of much wider acclaim.overall a MUST buy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The grasshopper becomes, The master. 27 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
What an album this turned out to be. young Robin leaves Procul Harum and with a suitcase full of dreams and his trusty `strat` forms a band named after himself. This the second album is so far removed from his time with the Proculs you`d never believe its the same guy. Let loose with his own ideas ,the band record a amazing Blues rock masterpiece! brooding ,rockin, chuggin,driftin,loud and quiet. Its all here a master guitarist in total control.. check out the live section as the bonus. wonderous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb recording, superb pressing 14 Oct 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This album shows exactly what can be done with old master tapes and commitment. Clarity, depth, low noise, a quality pressing, and to top it off the music itself is superbly played by a guitarist and band at the top of their respective games. Vinyl is indeed reborn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album but needs EQ Corrections 20 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album in 1974 when it came out and always loved it so I thought I'd buy the CD version. I'm enjoying all the magic, urgency and panache all over again. Great stuff. Unfortunately the bottom end isn't there! Overall the sound is limp. So I imported the tracks into Sonar X2, added a chunk of bottom and, a tad of mids and all is now well. Re-burned a CD of this. I can now hear the kick drum! So: highly recommended if you haven't heard it before but beware, whoever engineered it for release on CD did a very bad job in my opinion. Contact me if you want a copy of the corrected 'oomph' version!
