LABF .... is there anything we DON'T agree on?!?
I didn't know Trower had a new live album, (I GOTS
to get me that!) ... but his first live record ("Robin Trower Live!", 1976) is imo one of the truly great guitar displays ever recorded ....
Too Rolling Stoned
Rock Me Baby
It's very different (better) than his more plodding studio efforts ... he exhibits an astonishing Hendrix/Stevie Ray Vaughn-esque blues/metal power trio, although Trower is a much more efficient
player than either of them ... (though had Jimi lived it might've been different.)
Drummer Bill Lordan has an incredible drum solo on Alethea, too ...
