legend in his own time
In a time where we disgustingly throw around the term "rock star" for those of little consequence or talent, Robin Trower shows us what it means to have an impact even 40 years after first practicing his craft for us. A consummate, caring, and intense artist, Robin surrounds himself with those whom also deeply and compassionately deliever music that still deserves attention. 'Daydream' and the other classics, as well as the newer material, still take us to that place where few musicians will ever reside, and invite us along for the ride. Thank You, Robin and band for this awesome live collection!
One of Rock's True Originals
I'm with hixw, the live versions of this music is where it's at! I saw Trower in Amsterdam in 77 and again in Chicago in 2003 (about). He was better than ever! This guy justs keeps on Rollin!
Back In The Day....
Also saw Trower at the venerable Winterland many times. Day of the Eagle got all the pub/air but Bridge of Sighs and Little Bit of Sympathy are my favorites. Bridge of Sighs, with Pattison is still very good but with Dewar, it was almost an out of body experience. Unless I'm missing something, why are "In This Place" and "Lady Love" missing? Great tunes!
Off topic...kind of: If you can find it, "Beyond The Mist" is an incredible album largely ignored.
i saw him in the 70's at the Felt Forum--wow--great-i wish i was still living back then----
Living out of time - Trower Live
I saw Trower at Winterland in 75, he was great and I was 11. Saw him last year in LA, But this is insane good. If you like live Trower there is nothing I have ever heard or seen him do that ranks with this. I always wonder when we will all get arthritis in our left hands, not Robin, fingers are bionic.
"No Offense zebbsmom....but I believe the total oppisite is true."
This live album totally defines just how great a musician Mr. Trower is. Live music is the real deal and this album just purley rocks.
living out of time
First, I've been a Robin Trower freak for years. The album is enjoyable. That said, personally, I prefer the original versions of many of the songs. The "live" versions don't do them justice.
As if it's '76 all over again
Not having James Dewar is a huge loss but Davey Pattison(Gamma) is an able replacement and did a lot of work with trower in the '80s. This collection is such a tour de force for Trower fans fond of the old and new tunes alike. He hasn't lost a thing except a few hairs but his chops are as passionate and powerful as ever. Will not dissapoint serious guitar fans unless they think that Lenny Kravitz is the second coming....
