5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered Sound- Five Fantastic Cds for the Price of One.
For the price of just one Cd you get 5 in the Original Album Series by Robin Trower.

The good news is that all the CDs have had their sound remastered.
True there are no extra tracks which is a shame because there are a few kicking around like the Old Grey Whistle Test ones for example which would have been a wonderful bonus and added to the buyer's...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Albums Shame About The Packaging
After having bought the Groundhogs Original Album Series "Box" set which I was well pleased with I thought I would buy this one as well. Unlike the Groundhogs item, and although it is described as a box set, it doesn't have a box. The albums are supplied in very low quality slip cases and shoved into another larger slip case which is rather flimsy to say the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for those long misty days, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Fantastic value box set. The first album I ever bought was the debut Procul Harum and there was clearly a great guitarist in the band struggling to break out of the tightly controlled song structures. Listen to the solo on Repent Walpurgis. Anyway Robin Trower did leave the band and stretched out with not just some great rock guitar solos but also some great songs. If you're thinking of replacing your vinyl or you like rock/blues guitar but don't know Robin Trower then you can't go wrong at this price.

I had not heard of Robin Trower until I went surfing for more likely Original Series albums. Found him on Amazon UK, listened to YouTube and enjoyed a few tracks and bought on that basis.

CD package arrived in good time, as usual I cannot fault service.

Five albums for the price of one, Robin Trower is well respected as a guitarist and song writer . I first listened to his music way back in school many years ago and the album bridge of sighs has always been on my play list ever since.Highly recommended and a must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars one album which he recorded several times over, 3 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Here in one handy collection is the body of work that made music critics of the day comment that Yes, Bridge of Sighs was a superb album, but there was no reason to record it over and over again.

Formerly of Procol Harum, where his talent seemed a little at odds with the dubious balladry and keyboard preferences of Gary Brooker, Robin Trower launched his solo career sounding much as he had done on Procol tracks like Whisky Train, Juicy John Pink, etc. Relinquishing vocals to a new guy, he stuck to what he did best, which was soulful, atmospheric, sustained note soloing and sharp, catchy rhythm-building riffs. After a false start, along came Bridge of Sighs, and remained his laurel wreath for the next five years or so. Inarguably one of the finest albums ever recorded, it was evidently hard to crawl out from under its shadow, and his subsequent releases were little more than the Footbridges of Sighs. Long Misty Days did attempt to throw some variations into the mix,, but it wasn't until the BLT collaborations (not included here) that he discovered he couold write fresh material in different syles and return to form.

Worth a place in any collection, but you'll probably only ever play one of these CDs.....
