Often compared to Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower was one of the most underrated guitarists of the 70's. "Bridge of Sighs" was his biggest selling album, and for good reason, it rocks hard! Heavy blues with tons of smoking guitar solos and jams. This is just a great disc.

A KILLER collection of some of Trower's greatests moments, this 16 song collection has seen a lot of play on my stereo. What I liked about Robin Trower was his cool guitar tone and the fact that he jammed. The extended solos just make the disc for me. Since I obviously have large gaps in my Robin Trower collection, this disc fills the void temporarilty.

This was a cool find. I found this double live disc for $5.99. The thing I have always liked about Robin Trower is that he just kicks back and jams, and that's exactly what he does on these two discs. The first disc is a concert from 1974, the second disc is from 1998, but besides the noticable difference in production, the music hasn't changed. Robin Trower is still kicking out the blues jams.
