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 Classic Album 18 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Classic album is a term often used in the music industry, but just what defines a classic album? Is it reaching certain sales figures? Is it decided by respected music critics or is it just plain old public opinion. If it is the latter, then in the humble opinion of this member of the public Bridge of Sighs is a classic album, certainly as far as the blues/rock genre is concerned. It contains only eight songs, which was about par for the course back in the early seventies, but each one is a gem and where I'm tempted to skip tracks on some CDs, I have to listen to all the tracks on this one.
It opens with the energetic Day of the Eagle and there's more energy with The Fool and Me and Little Bit of Sympathy. Balance this with the beautiful slow ballads In This Place and About To Begin, add the catchy Lady Love, the rumbling Too Rolling Stoned and the haunting title track and you have all the necessary ingredients for a classic album.
This package also includes the Robin Trower bands debut album Twice Removed From Yesterday. This contains a couple of weaker tracks, notably Ballerina, but also contains a couple of classics, in I Can't Wait Much Longer and Daydream, a personal favourite.
What more can I say! Well, after sampling the virtuoso guitar playing of one of Britain finest, have another listen, to someone who had one of the best voices in music, the late great James Dewar. You'll love it!

By Paul S. Blakey VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Well talk about double wammies! This is more than a feast it is a banquet to relish. I can't imagine anyone not having either one or the other of these albums but if that is you, go for this package. This quality of tune-writing happens once in lifetime. The production/sound and lyrics may not be brill but this is outweighed by the unique style of music. Yes, unique-I absolutely hate it when any one compares his music to Hendrix. Inspired maybe but they are worlds apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two classic prog-rock LPs on one CD. 4 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
He didn't manage to make it on to Channel 4's top 10 progressive rockers, but the Southend songsmith produced two of the grooviest albums ever to be conveniently combined on one Compact Disc. Twice Removed from Yesterday was recorded on vinyl in 1973 by Robin and his merry band, Reg Isadore on drums and Jim Dewar, bass and vocals. The Procul Harum possee was still intact with Mathew Fisher bringing up the rear on production. I don't know if he remembered 1973 but the themes encompassed herein are love, love, love with a capital lurve. But it's love in a very seventies way, i.e. it's mostly about space and drugs, man, with a bit of romance thrown in. Trower described the lyrics to one of his songs as "nonsense" and to be fair he's more interested in the tunes than the libretto. Reg the drummer dropped out of the band at an early stage, and as percussionists go he was pretty laid back. This didn't help the overall sound and both albums come across as quite underproduced and a little sparse by today's high standards. However, our rock hero is notoriously modest and this is in keeping with his cardinal characteristic. As ever, Trower's songs are either fast or slow --- there's no in- between. This can be a problem if you don't like fast or slow tunes --- On Twice Removed the first two tunes are slow; I can't Wait Much Longer and Daydream, which are well loved favourites for Trower afficianados. The theme song is a slowie too and very much produced to the well known specification, that it should be very slow and replete with soulful vocals from the ex-Sly Stone singer. Of course it should go without saying that Robin's Hendrix inspired guitar is right at the top of the mix ----- itis his band after all. So if you don't like the electric guitar then this combo may not be for you. Read more ›
