Apologies that the packaging, sleeve notes et al around this release of Robin Trower's recordings at the BBC cannot be described since all I have thus far is a download of these recordings. So let the music speak for itself, which to be fair and accurate it does with considerable aplomb. What we have here is an excellent reprise anthology of Trower's work on "Auntie" Including his first John Peel session from March 1973 along with later Peel appearances, sessions with Bob Harris and a complete BBC in Concert special from 1975. The cast involves the usual band members with Robin Trower on burning hot fender, Jimmy Dewar singing his lungs out and Reg Isidore and Bill Lordan thumping the skins. Isidore plays drums on anything before 1975 while Lordan takes the stool from thereon. Many of these sessions have of course been readily available in separate record issues but packaging the lot together has real merit and the Whispering Bob Sessions are new to this reviewer.

In candour guilt has already set in since Trower has just released a brand new album "The playful heart" and perhaps its time to stop harking back to past glories. And yet this album is an irresistible and fascinating mix of song versions which not only allows cross comparison on the different BBC outputs but also across other albums that Trower has recorded. Indeed the live BBC in concert sessions bears real comparison in the quality stakes to Trower's most famous album "Live" recorded in Stockholm which had a vice like grip on the US charts in the mid 1970s. It is a powerful set of songs and the version of "Bridge of Sighs" one of the best recorded.

I had the great pleasure to to work with Jimmy Dewar many years ago after he moved on from the Robin Trower band. His voice was what attracted me to the band in the first place, but every single member of this band is amazing.

These archive recordings capture this chemistry and it shines though even although some of the earlier recordings are a little bit lo-fi by today;s standards. Well done to the Beeb and Chrysalis for issuing this treat.

Too many reviews are from people who I think would describe themselves as "complete-ists" or something similar and whinge on about the running order not being right or a bit of applause being edited out. For goodness sake just listen to the music! Any true Trower fan will rate this as five stars. The sessions and in concert tracks will send a frisson through you and transport you back to those exciting days when this music was heard for the first time. The playing is fantastic and the sound quality to the usual high Beeb standard.

And what is that one star review about? At least the reviewer is self aware enough to style himself as V.Meldrew but if you are going to give a one star review explain yourself! Why be so cryptic?

Yes a trip back to the 70,s,I was lucky late 60s early 70,s was a great time for music ,and robin trower was one name of many that fitted the bill.James dewer on vocal and bass,exellent just like jack bruce some years earlier with another 3 piece cream.Listening to this double disc out of the b.b.c locker,and full cred...to them for getting this out there,it brought back a lot of memories.To any young dudes out there who have not heard any robin trower and are just getting into rocky,blues stuff give this a go good value for the money.The album is made up of live recordings from "john peel" and "Bob harris" sessions 1973-75,and a live at b.b.c in concert,Considering it was All "live" sound quality good,and it showed what a tight band they were.A few of the songs were repeated 2 or 3 times ,hey but other wise from a list of 30 you cant complain.

Well presented in jewel case. No tracks you won't know if you've got the albums from the early 70s but several different versions of quite few of them - though some are extremely similar. Includes the BBC sight&sound concert from 1975 that I remember watching one Saturday evening... :))

I havn't physically got this yet, ( i will soon ). I've got all the session tracks from other sources........BRILLIANT !!
The BBC In Concert i used to have on the Windsong release, which was released in '95. Now this is where it gets odd..........the Windsong release had Twice Removed From Yesterday & Rock Me Baby on it ! They're missing here, BUT this release HAS got Too Rolling Stoned & I Can't Wait Much Longer, ( not on the Windsong release ! ). All included, that would make the In Concert recording about 75 to 80 minutes long. Back in those days, this was 1975 i think, the bands played just enough for the actual broadcast.......ONE HOUR ! ( Sometimes there were 2 bands :- 30 mins each ). So where have the extra songs come from ????????????? What's original & what isn't ????????? I would have thought perhaps there had been 2 separate In Concerts, but the track listing is just TOO similar !! 2 years before, or 2 years later, would have resulted in quite a different set list i'd have said !

So what's occurring ??

( Anyway, brilliant music all the same, but i'm a stickler for detail, so why can't they get it right. And i'll bet there's infernal edits between each song too !!! ).

Have now got this, & listening to it as i write this update ! The In Concert HAS been edited, there's no intro's to any of the songs AT ALL !!! WHY WHY WHY WHY do they have to do this ???????????????????????
