5.0 out of 5 stars What a road it is!!! 8 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ever since I heard my first Robin Trower record back in 1973 at 21yrs old I had always thought that the voice behind the guitar was Robin Trower himself.
Not that I did'nt enjoy excellent psychedelic blues rock guitar for its own sake, its just that the vocals of James Dewar were such an added blessing to the already Hendrix inspired power chords. It was by all definitions a perfect match. Add to this the focused drumwork of Bill Lordan and you had one of the most consistant power trios' of the 1970s, who made an awesome run of albums for Chrysalis Records.

As exemplified on the first set of Trower's output captured on the complementary box setA Tale Untold: the.. the definitive sound of the Trower-Dewar-Lordan lineup through 1983 is solidly boxed together on 3 more jam-packed cds (6 more albums!)all with 2012 remastereded sound (the earlier set is the 2010 remaster).

To make this package even more enticing, 2 of these 6 albums have the collaborative efforts of Jack Bruce's vox fronting those massive power chords. As if Dewar isn't enough for incredible voice (just check out 'Bluebird') there are two more albums with perhaps one of the all time greatest, Jack Bruce!
Truth be told when all's "sung" and done (imho), Dewar is better suited for Trower's guitar. Bruce does a fine job on the two representational albums however when the last album to finish this box unfolds Dewar's wonderful voice is a welcome return.

I find that the years represented here for Chrysalis the most interesting 'cause we find the BAND mixing it up abit with variations on their "sound"....but always consistant, powerful and ferociously Robin Trower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value! 16 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While to me the material on this second version is not quite as strong as Chrysalis Years Vol.1 I would still rate this release 5 stars because you get six(!) albums of remastered Trower from his the late 70's/early 80's period at one very low price. The booklet is more informative here also, so its a no brainer to pick this up if you liked Vol. 1. If you are new to or just getting in to Robin's work I would suggest you start with Vol.1 & then move into Vol.2. Its nice to see that there is still great value being offered by the big music labels after all of the overpriced Immersion & Super Deluxe box sets being released recently. Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A mention for the man 6 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
Excellent music...this completes the great run of Robin Trower albums. It's also great to see a well deserved mention for James Dewar on the cover, he was always the icing on the cake for me. This is not to decry the material featuring Jack Bruce, I just love Jimmy's voice more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caravan to Magnificent 19 April 2012
By Hughami
Format:Audio CD
Any great artist may have a period of great commercial acclaim with record sales to match but that doesn't last forever. The tendency then, is to think that this is a result of an inferior product. In some cases perhaps, but certainly not here!

Another important consideration is that in the 70's and early 80's Artists like Robin were producing a record per year - sometimes two! Another reason why the 'commercial mass' may move on to the next thing: saturation -too much of a good thing.

My point being that although these releases were not as commercially successful as Robin's previous releases that in no way can be seen as a sign of inferior quality. Far from it, we have a diversity in scope that is amongst his best. In City Dreams is almost a Funk/Blues outing. Caravan to Midnight (long been my favourite RT release) is a R&B, meets Soul, meets the blues tour de force. All achieved with the same inimitable RT sound and yes, the wonderful Jimmy Dewar!

Victims of the fury is more aligned to a blues rock format and contains the sensational Roads to Freedom. Reason enough to buy it.

The two records with Jack Bruce are very good (especially BLT) but JB is not on a par as a singer or as good a fit as JD in my opinion and so not quite as pleasing for me.

Lastly Back it up -it has some great tunes on it, but perhaps, not quite on a par with the other releases here... This was the last Record with JD -sadly - and RT took a break before returning with Dave Bronze on vocals in Beyond the Mist. With all respect to Dave Bronze, I can't tell you how disappointed I was to finally get to see Robin in 1985 and then find no Jimmy on vocals!!! Never got to see him... Gutted! : (

Please don't let the consensus that reduced sales equals reduced quality... these are pretty much essential for any collection let alone a committed RT fan!

Buy, Buy... : )

Released 27 Feb 2012 - "Father On Up The Road: The Chrysalis Years 1977-1983" on EMI/Chrysalis 5099930138629 is the mega label's second anthology for guitar virtuoso Robin Trower and breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (79:30 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "In City Dreams" released September 1977 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1148. Track 10 is "Bluebird (7" Edit) - a non-album version. Tracks 11 to 19 are the album "Caravan To Midnight" released August 1978 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1189.

Disc 2 (73:07 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 10 are the album "Victims Of The Fury" released January 1980 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1215. Track 11 is "One In A Million" - the non-album B-side to the 7" single "Victims Of The Fury" released January 1980 on Chrysalis CHS 2402. Tracks 12 to 21 are the album "B.L.T." released February 1981 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1324. The B.L.T. refers to the Guitarist, Bass and Drummer - Robin Trower, Bill Lordan and Jack Bruce.

Disc 3 (71:26 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Truce" released January 1982 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1352 (credited to Robin Trower and Jack Bruce). Tracks 10 to 18 are the album "Back It Up" released September 1983 in the UK and USA on Chrysalis CHR 1420 and FV 41420 respectively.

To get 6 albums and two 7" single sides thrown in for just over twelve quid is pretty amazing value for money (including a free rip to your PC or Mac). But the big deal here is the 2012 PETER MEW REMASTER. I've raved about this guy's touch at the tape before - even set a tag of his remastered issues for those interested in quality sound (there's hundreds) - and this double jewel-case set is no different.
