5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Stuff 3 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Trower live in the era that this was recorded is almost always great and this set doesn't disappoint. I could have done without hearing the cover of 'sailing' again I've always hated that song and this version is even worse than the Rod Stewart one. Leaving that aside the band are on fire throughout. Jimmy Dewar is one of the great rock voices although sadly he doesn't often get the credit he deserved.
One minor gripe is with the sleeve notes 'Victims of the future' FFS? Does nobody proof read things nowadays? Maybe they think that anyone buying this will be too old to be capable of reading the small print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Trower 16 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't wholly agree with the previous review, although the legendary Mr Howard's earlier review is spot on. Being culled from sound board recordings you don't expect multi-track quality but it's still highly listenable and the one thing that stands out is the energy of the band. The youthful Trower band pack a punch that you had to be there to believe ... I was at his UK shows.
The sound quality is mixed, from reasonable to very good, but never poor. Trower is on fire, just listen to the version of Daydream from Illinois 1976. And Jimmy Dewar shows was a great, great vocalist he was ... up there with blues rock's best including Paul Rodgers ... as showcased on his forte I Can't Wait Much Longer.
The Hendrix comparisons continue to rage even in press reviews for this CD, but I don't get it and it is unfair to say the least. Yes some early tracks hinted towards Hendrix, but anyone with a sustained guitar, using heavy vibrato, a univibe and wah wah will have a bit of Hendrix about them. Even the Satrian's and Van Halens of this world have admitted to a bit of a nod towards Jimi.
However, Trower is more than that. Great songs, great feel and excellent phrasing, he should just be ackowledged as a Master of his trade, even if that trade sticks mainly to the blues rock vein.
Overall, a great CD and a real must have for any true Trower fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Trower! 3 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thank you Amazon! My copy of 'State to State' arrived today and I must say, having just listened to it (a double CD set), it's been well worth the wait. The music is live! There are some excellent versions of classic tracks from Robin Trower's early studio albums such as 'Bridge of Sighs' and 'In City Dreams'. All the performances were recorded in America during the period 1974-1980. Wonderful to hear the luscious sound of James Dewar's velvet vocals. Absolutely gorgeous!State To State: Live Across America 1974-1980

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant! 20 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just brilliant. Robin Trower and James Dewar at their best. A lot better live than on most studio albums and tracks from my favourite period of Trower. Think this should bring more people to appreciate this music. Keep your boy bands!
