ROBIN TROWER Twice Removed From Yesterday BGO (2010)

Robin Trower

All but wiped from collective memory by the towering success of 1974's 'Bridge of Sighs' and its chart-busting single 'Too Rolling Stoned', former Procul Harum guitarist Trower's solo debut of the previous year affirmed the schism within a band splitting into two camps (progressive and blues).

Nailing his colours to the mast of the Delta, Trower delivered a brooding, soulful set of originals and a cover of BB King's 'Rock Me Baby' while prominent within his power trio's soundscape was a self-professed admiration of the recently-deceased Jimi Hendrix (also late of a three man line-up).

Trower was one of many disciples but unlike the wannabees had nailed the man's technique to the floor. A somewhat downbeat (even respectfully mournful), mid-paced affair in blues rock, 'Twice Removed From Yesterday' would have benefited from occasionally more up-tempo material; nonetheless it repays in spades when Trower brews storms, with bassist Jim Dewar's vocals the perfect complement to the emotive, sinewy playing.
