On this album he uses an Epiphone Revera accompanied a lot by organ and trombone. This certainly gives the album a retro feel. The whole album has a great feel . I love it If your a Robben Ford fan you will too

You know on E-Bay you tend to get put off by one negative 'feedback' in a list of 200 positive ones?? Same with Amazon - I go straight to the 'one star' reviews (or used to)!! Now I make up my own mind. Not sure what the reviewer who said he didn't think Robben had what it takes to go 'to the next level' was talking about (or what he actually means - what 'level' is that then?). As a bit of a player myself, this bloke leaves the likes of Eric Clapton, Gary Moore (r.i.p.)and the Steve Morse style 'shredders' standing still! Gets invited to gig with Larry Carlton even (who is a 24 carat genius).

Don't worry about the 'trombone phobia' here. The reviews worried me a bit but it's not intrusive at all, gives a bit of additional 'brassy bass' to the mix and fits nicely with the overall feel of the album which is a radical departure for Mr Ford. I think Robben should get some credit for including the instrument - he must have realised it was a bit 'chancey' and liable to alienate a few who just want 'more of the same'. Very jazzy, 'late night-ish' listening - easy to imagine this in a New York club in 'the Village' at 1.00am with a nice Jack Daniels (or three!!). Not dinner-party music though - it's not THAT bland (unless you're a Deep Purple or Led Zep fan - in which case this may well be a bit quiet (and tasteful) for you!). Takes a few listens to be sure but Robben Ford has a great touch - a master of the additional 6th note (which I just can't seem to emulate successfully - damn it!) - I also note the rather nice old Epiphone Riviera featured here throughout - perhaps a 'nod' to Mr. 335??

This album stands level with any of Robben's back catalogue. It is a back to basics approach. Robben uses 1 vintage guitar (63 Riviera) throughout and no effects. Its a compilation of old songs that are brought to life by some serious quality musicians.

It may be too laid back for those wanting to hear 'Talk You Your Daughter again', but this is just sheer quality.

Robbens voice is terrific and deserves as much mention as his sublime playing

I just love it !!!

Despite being one the worlds most gifted guitar players Robben Ford has always been a hard one to categorise. To jazzy for the blues guys - not jazzy enough for the jazz guys. Lacking in a gusty Jack Daniel's soaked Gregg Allman voice, the rock guys didn't seem to want to know him either. Despite all this Robben Ford is so much more than a great guitarist. He's also a good (not great) singer, a decent song writer and an effective band leader; always having the knack to put together great bands either for touring or recording purposes.
On this release Robben strips it all back to basics, keeps it simple in terms of the arrangement of these classic songs and eases back on his guitar playing. Unfortunately not to many will be interested in hearing this album unless you are a guitar player and thats a little sad, because there is a lot on offer here. From the stripped back simple groove of 'Everything I do gonna be funky' to the great rendition of the Bob Dylan song 'You go your way and i'll go mine' at no time does this album ever feel forced and deliberately 'retro'. It all seems very natural and it is indeed refreshing to hear Robben's guitar tone go from the thick overdriven Dumble tones he is well known for to a clean sparkling tone (still Dumble but more classic Fender sounding with a tone of reverb). All the guitar parts were reportedly done on one mid 60's Epiphone Riviera on the neck pickup. This of course limits a guitar players 'voice' immensely but Robben never fails to come up with deliciously well constructed and inspired parts and as always knows when to play and when not to play. With Robben Ford 'taste' is always king.

So where does 'Bringing It Back Home' rank amongst Ford other offering from his extensive career? Very high up indeed.

I was really looking forward to receiving this album, being a fan of Robben, however I was somewhat disappointed. His guitar parts are excellent, but I thought the material lacked something and I found the trombone parts (not my favourite brass instrument) incongruous. A complete brass section would have been to me, acceptable, but it sounded out of place and as if he could only afford one brass player and they just happened to have a trombonist kicking about the place.

Just by going on this website and watching the trailer I can already tell RF will not disappoint (himself and his fans).
With him you get what you see - no bling, shines, show, bluffs. And then he has such a skill of making music sound and feel the right way. I have been a dear follower of his music for many years (Couldnt help but playing BUSTED UP in a three piece band myself many years ago!). Who will forget his LIVE recording with Jimmy Witherspoon and his brother on the drums and the great Norwegian ESPEN on the organ? Someone who played with Miles and was fully accepted by the master in his crazy days??! Someone who played on a studio album for Kiss??! RF - the man with the full package who most of the time only shows parts of it. To me he is the Chet Baker of todays without the drugs! An incredible warm and balanced person with sharp mind and bags of LIVE/LIFE experience.
