TOP 100 REVIEWERon 5 September 2014
One of the most distinctive singers of the rock era paired with one of its tastiest guitarists. What could go wrong?
In truth, quite a lot - in reality, very little.
I love Jack Bruce, for me he's one of those 'special people' (eg. Ray Davies, John Fogerty, John Sebastian, Glenn Tilbrook...) whose very presence makes me feel good.
It helps that he has one of the most thrilling rock/jazz/blues voices of the last fifty years, still sounding terrific on this collaboration with the mellow guitar of the very fine Robin Trower. (Ignore those who say his voice is shot, I've no idea what they're talking about.)
There's a strong jazz feel to some of the songs, but it's bluesiness that's to the fore on these eleven songs, each giving plenty of room for Bruce's expansive vocals and Trower's moody, sinuous guitar lines. The latter proves as equally effective a partner to JB as Clapton once did.
Bruce's bass playing is of course beyond reproach - the talent of the man! - and the drumming of experienced veteran Gary Husband is subtle enough to complement the other two.
This is one album that could be played loud when you want to kick out the cobwebs, or late at night when you want some roughage with yer blues! I listen to it often, and if I haven't heard it for a while I get withdrawal symptoms - and then it's always so good to hear it once more.

Highly recommended.

This is such an excellent album it should be in the school curriculum. Robin Trower was highly regarded back in 60s/70s but fell from the public eye - he has never really recovered that stature but his work over the past 10-15 years has been extraordinary - his latest releases especially. But this album is not just Robin Trower - Jack Bruce - sadly now departed - is at his best and Gary Husband are the glue that makes this what it is. Superb.

Amazing album. Guitar, bass/singing & drums, so simple it nearly hurts. The high quality of every songs does the trick. Wish I'd discover this album much earlier. Highly recommended.

i really didnt know what to expect from this. ive always loved trower and consider him to be a VERY under-rated songwriter, and he has made some truly fabulous albums. the last few however havent been up to the fine standards of his glory years (Although the playing, as ever, was exemplary) likewise jack bruce looked dis-interested and unmotivated at the sad cream reunion. the 2 previous albums by these two legendary figures were solid peices of work but very patchy in parts (although there were some great tracks on both)- so, with both men in the twilights of their careers i approached this with caution.

well, to say im speechless is an under-statement! this is truly GREAT album. where to start? well, firstly. THE SOUND. this is a beautifully produced album. rich and dark. every instrument is crystal clear and punchy. its a joy to listen to. likewise, jack sounds inspired and his voice, (something else always a joy to listen to), is as great as it ever was. THE MATERIAL - very, very strong. really excellent songs. some great lyrics here and most importantly, there are some very strange, off-kilter melodies going on, unlike anything trower has done before. at times the songs feel very reminiscent of 'disraeli gears' era cream, at others they veer into sometrhing else entirely. there are territories on here that trower has never explored before and it works wonderfully.its blues, its funk, its jazz, its rock. its all things combined and i really cant praise it enough.

this album should be compulsory listening for all young wannabies forming a band. let these two 60+ year old MASTERS show you where its at! hey, trower and bruce, you pair of old rascals! what do you think youre doing coming up with something so effortlessly brilliant as this at your ages?!!

to all of you out there hesitating at pressing the 'buy' button - dont be! - this , my friends, is pure class

One of the things I first fell in love with about Cream was Jack Bruce's vocals and he is still in fine voice here, I don't hear any drop in power or control. The opener, Seven Moons is a slow burning groove, on Lives of Clay Trower's guitar combines with Bruce's bass-line in a rather Hendrixesque way and So Far To Yesterday is just sublime. How anyone who has any feel for the music of either of these musicians could want for more is beyond me.
