Bridge of Sighs (2007 Remaster)

Robin Trower

Robin Trower (born March 9, 1945 in Catford, England) is a British blues rock guitarist who achieved success with Procol Harum during the 1960's, and then again as the leader of his own power trio. Perhaps Trower's most famous album is Bridge of Sighs (1974). This album, along with his first (Twice Removed from Yesterday) and third (For Earth Below) solo albums, was produced by his former Procol Harum band mate, organist Matthew Fisher. Those who favor electric guitarists who can play live what they record in the studio will be very impressed with the Robin Trower Live album - especially the cut Daydream. While often compared to Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower never received the publicity nor same volume of fans. Read more on Last.fm.

    This is definately a Classic, easily listenable all the way thru. Too Rolling Stoned is at or near the top of blues rock that I love to play air guitar and turn up the volume!

    Yes. This is one of the top 25 all-time rock albums. Every power song is a radio hit, and Bridge Of Sighs/In This Place and About To Begin are awesome headphone (or make-out) songs. Great songs, great recording, great vocals, perfect drumming for the songs.

    Very Hendrix, psychedelic, and bluesy. Takes me back to when I was making life decisions (13 - 14 years old). Just listening to it again gives me flashbacks of what I was doing - or shouldn't be doing - back in those days. The music has just absolutely fabulous guitar tones. It was a must-have album once you heard the title track or Day of the Eagle back in the day. Every song is worth a listen. You just don't hear guitar work like this anymore. And it'll definitely remind you of Hendrix, but it's no rip-off. Just another unique player in the same period.
