Rating: 4/5


This reissue of Trower’s 2nd release has never sounded so good. Originally released in ’74 to high praise it peaked on Billboard at #7. Before going solo in ’71 Robin was a part of the influential group Procol Harum.

Continuing on where Hendrix left off with his emotional and heartfelt blues guitar. They both loved the strat and used it as though it was a part of themselves. You can hear on this highly acclaimed record sounds, techniques and melodies that would later influence many a guitar player. Just the sheer magnitude of Robin’s playing alone makes this release worthwhile. This will hold up against any guitar record today. Everything on this disc is a masterpiece and this reissue will bring it to a new generation.
