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 ...
Believe it or not, some of my favorite Trower records were the ones he recorded in the late 80s/early 90s with vocalist Davey Pattison (a guy who sounds like a cross between Paul Rogers and Lou Gramm.)
If you haven't heard them already, check out the discs "Passion," "Take What You Need," and "In the Line of Fire."
