Robin Trower took a lot of stick in the 70s as a so called Hendrix clone - I even remember getting a dozy letter published in the hallowed(?) Melody Maker in 1975, fighting his corner, bless - but he was always much better than that. After a 40 year plus career - he first made his mark with Procol Harum - this album remains his high water mark. Blasting off with Day of the Eagle (still a staple he plays in his live sets to this day), it moves through the moody title track to the wistful In This Place, where RT duels with bassist Jim Dewar's outstanding bluesy vocals (what an underrated and classy singer he was). Too Rolling Stoned (another perennial live classic) is the worthy centrepiece of the album, leading into a sensational finish with Lady Love (melodic, almost singles material, perish the thought!) and Little Bit of Sympathy, a suitably raucous album closer. Trower's fretwork is about feel, not flash, and his solos are from the heart. There's no risk in buying this one - and make sure you catch him live whilst you can. Essential listening.

Bridge of Sighs is probably Robin Trower's most consistent album originally released in '74. Blues, funk and a heavy Hendrix influence featuring James Dewars rich vocals. The bonus tracks are from BBC sessions from John Peel and have livened the studio versions from this album and the later release For Earth Below. Well worth updating previous CD releases and a good place to start for the uninitiated.

This album is a classic. Trower's keening and exhuberant guitar work defines the proceedings. There are powerful vocals and relentless driving bass and drums. Stand out track is Too Rolling Stoned". The opening section is full tilt raunch with big skirling chords. This segues into a long blues-drenched closing sequence dominated by field holler guitar phrases. All of the remaining tracks motor along to good effect with some great rock playing. This release is augmented by an interesting selection of recordings made for the John Peel radio show.

for those of you who love the rock/blues genre but have not yet discovered the criminally under-rated robin trower,buy this classic record asap!! day of the eagle kicks off at a frantic pace dragging the listener straight in to the album,the songs cleverly arranged,slower tempo ending leads superbly into the atmospheric title track and in this place.the fool and me is a real romp and is followed by the 'jam like'maybe slightly bloated too rolling stoned.the classy/ethereal about to begin brings the best out of james dewars vocals.lady love is a real toe tapper with a simple but addictive riff,and the album is brought to a superb close with the quite brilliant little bit of sympathy.throughout the album,trowers guitar work matches anything done by messrs clapton,page,hendrix and is worthy of much wider acclaim.overall a MUST buy!!!

I purchased this CD along with the Best of Robin Trower (The Day of the Eagle) and whilst there is some overlap - tracks wise - I am delighted with both CD's.

I first came across RT's work on an old BBC clip, with his 'power trio' playing 'Bridge of Sighs' and I knew then that I had to hear more. With the risk of repeating myself, some have argued that Trower is derivative, being 'Hendrixesque', yet I would argue that Trower has taken inspiration from others and then crafted his own destiny. It can also be argued that, during his tenure, in the Prog.Rock, Procol Harum, he was a contempory of Hendrix's, no wonder then that RT has been claimed as an influence by and for the likes of SRV, Fripp et al.

As with the 'Best of RT' IMHO, there are no duds on this album, all tracks are superb, no solos just for the sake of them and each track, as a song, is complete with each band member fulfilling his role superbly. It is also nice to hear the orginal tracks - as far as a CD will allow - compared to the 'Bonus Tracks' BBC Sessions (John Peel 1974 and 1975). The 1975 tracks include; 'Fine Day', Confessin' Midnight', 'It's only Midnight' and 'Gonna be more Suspicious'.

Trower's guitar tone is divine and his playing considered and thoughtful, even if it is instinctive and comes from the heart, a contradiction in terms? Maybe, but have a listen and hear what I mean, there is 'space' within his work, superb riffs, with considered, integral solos, yet space too - inspirational!

With a three piece band there are no margins for error - Trower, Dewer and Isidore/Lordon are well rehearsed and a tight unit.

when I got this it was priced at £3.99 I would have paid much more than that ,this is the best recording Robin Trower made IMO and to get this again on vinyl for less than I paid when it was released is amazing. Its £13.99 now but still worth every penny, highly recommended if you like electric guitar bluesy type music. Good recording no warp and in excellent condition thanks Amazon.
