5.0 out of 5 stars Classic proto-stoner rock that sounds vintage yet fresh and aged very well...i'd buy it,crank loud and enjoy!, 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Well this is a turn up for the books.One of my late Dad's favourite heavy 70's rock records was Bridge of Sighs and i often heard it growing up.Now i liked it but always thought it was perhaps too much of a white-boy Hendrix knock-off..my loss.Now recently i've put a lot of my musical pre-conceptions aside and re-checked out a lot of stuff worthy of more attention.Result?Well,i've finally realised Bridge of Sighs kicks some serious a$$ lol..and wanting to have more Trower to listen to,headed straight for this bargain.The ex Procol Harum guitarists first 4 studio lps and a live disc to boot.All praise to Original Album Series,this is nourishing vintage rock fun at an amazing price.The two Grade A lps are Twice Removed and Bridge of Sighs most defintely..both of which get underway with distinctive,statement of intent opening tracks.."I can't wait much longer",a soul wrenching Pysch rock ballad and the barnstorming Hendrix on steroids stomper "Day of the eagle".Grade B are "For Earth Below" and "Long Misty Days"...tbh for all it's concessions for a more commercial soulful sound,Long Misty Days is perhaps the better lp.Even the cover of "Sailing" nicely swerves away from memories of Rod,thankfully.Have'nt spun the live disc properly yet(so much music to get thru) but it seems solid what i've heard.Now the musical essentials.RT can play the ass of the guitar and there's more than just Jimi on show here.James Dewar is an under-rated bassist/singer.His souly tones may be cheesy for some,but i prefer his understated approach to alot of rock singers of the same period.It seems genuine perhaps.And the two drummers here hold it tight but loose.So to sum up,if you've heard enough(i'd hunt out the afore-mentioned Day of the Eagle..like it?buy this without fear),take a "reflective" woods walk,crank up the head phones and take a walk to the Bridge of Sighs.
