Format: Audio CD
Robin Trower by his own admission produced some pretty patchy stuff in the mid-to-late 80s. 21st Century Blues in 1994 marked a real return to form with the fabulous Livingstone Brown on bass and vocals and since then Trower has turned out a superbly consistent body of work (a couple with LB in the producer's chair and at least one earlier live recording featuring Jim Dewar). This album includes (on CD2) a selection of his more recent work featuring a number of different vocalists including himself. It includes my favourite RT track of all time, 'Precious Gift' (from 21st Century Blues), which has an odd construction (the chorus is sung only once) but a wonderful languid solo and great vox from Livingstone Brown. CD1 is all live in roughly chronological order (so Jim Dewar appears on the first few tracks) and I have to say I think it's wonderful and as good as RT's original Live album (and that's saying something, I know). In fact my only gripe about the whole package is that there aren't any liner notes giving recording and personnel details. But if you've got everything the great man has done (as most of us RT fans do) you can piece it together yourself. Obviously if you do have everything else you don't need this too, but that's not the point, is it?

The product info doesn't mention it, but Disc One is live. However, these tracks are NOT taken from the famous "Live" album of 1973 (Stockholm) - these are far inferior, apparently taken from the album "This Was Now", which combined performances from 1974 and 1998. Disc Two is far better, taken from two studio albums, "20th Century Blues" (1994) and "Someday Blues" (1997). There are some great electric blues tracks here, but I'm still not sure it's worth £7+ of your hard-earned cash. If you're new to RT, buy the 1973 "Live" album instead and take it from there.

HASH(0x9a9be6b4) out of 5 stars Classic Trower! 23 Aug. 2005
By Kip T. Kleinhuizen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These CDs stand out as one of the better RT efforts in a long time, largely due to Davey Pattison's vocal work. His vocal style seems to fit RT's musical style, rhythms, and intonations better than the other vocalists I've heard on past Trower CDs.

Robin's playing is inspired, as always, and rock solid consistent. No surprises instrumentally or lyrically.

One cut in particular prompted me to replay it over and over and over. Rise Up Like the Sun is an especially soulful, flawlessly executed cut that really highlights Robin's occasionally-spartan, bluesy style and Pattison's heart-felt vocal performance. Extraordinary!
