    Definatly Robin`s best album this one,released April 1974 ,with James Dewar (R.I.P)on bass/vocal , & Reg Isidore on drums! Best line-up there was,still today.. I always admired his strat-tones,and his play-style as well !:naughty:

    ..just adding two more kick-ass/"Hendrixian" type of songs..First song off with Jack Bruce on bass/vocal, "No islands lost" from album "BLT" (Jack Bruce/Bill Lordan/Robin Trower) - 1981:thumb:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWkkpK_KnVw"]No Island Lost - Jack Bruce & Robin Trower - YouTube[/ame]

    next from the 1983-album "Back it up",with James Dewar/Trower/Alan Clarke-drums (also credited on bass David Bronze)

    I love this snappy fat,woody,raspy & funky tone going on, with some wild blues-shred-solo on top of it !:wow:..For strat`s he is my idol when it comes to guitar/strat-tones !:naughty:

    Phew, that was close.
    I thought all this Trower stuff was going to go by without a mention of Hendrix.

    :laugh2::laugh2:

    ..Not so strange,beside from Robin`s wild & cranked up pentatonic blues-style (& a power-trio line-up),Robin uses gear close sounding to Hendrix: Strats,Marshall (JCM800-heads VS 200Superlead),Wah-wah..I sometimes thinks,This is the maybe the tone Jimi would have today if he lived ?:hmm:
    Just like Jimi,He is an unique songwriter and a amazing guitarist! Really love the both of them!:)

    My point was that I thought that everyone who posted about Trower hadn't
    noticed that he wasn't unique or original.

    I don't doubt his playing ability, I thought he was good when I saw him with
    the Paramounts.

    I'm just not impressed by such obvious emulation of someone else's "thing".

    If Hendrix and Trower were guitars, they'd be Gibson and Epiphone.

    However, he's sold millions of albums, so my personal opinion is irrelevant anyway,
    as lots of people enjoy him.

    I gotta say it.
    I'm with Sarge 100% on this one.
    Robin is good but....
    Jimi left a huge hole that Robin sort of filled.
    Sort of.

    Trower was a fine musician, but that hole Jimi left STILL hasn't been filled.

    And Jimi was a songwriter, singer, and killer showman/entertainer...with his own sense of style.

    It may border on sacrilege to some, but I prefer SRV's rendition of Voodoo Chile better than Hendrix's original. I have that DVD. Lotsa good tunes on it.
