About Robin Trower
With an extensive repertoire of classic hits and album-oriented rock to his credit, Robin Trower is one of very few authentic ’60s and ’70s blues-rock guitar heroes still keeping it alive today. He tours the world extensively, entertaining fans with memorable songs, such as ‘Bridge Of Sighs’, ‘Daydream’, ‘I Can’t Wait Much Longer’, ‘Day Of The Eagle’, ‘Too Rolling Stoned’, and with new material that eventually becomes as enduring as the others. The sight of him standing onstage with his signature Fender Stratocaster in front of his Marshall stacks is as characteristic to his fans as his classic songs.
Robin departed the successful British classic rockers, Procol Harum, in the early Seventies when the ideas he was developing in his own mind warranted the decision to start his own band. Putting his innovative guitar style and compositional strengths to the forefront, he went on to make over forty successful albums and compilations, starting with 1973’s Twice Removed From Yesterday. Recently, Robin released his long awaited first live DVD, recorded in Germany in March of 2005. Released (and sold separately) on CD as well, Living Out Of Time: Live is an appropriate title, as it’s a brilliant display of just how timeless his music really is.
Mark Knopfler dusted off Dire Straits songs he hadn’t played in 14 and 36 years respectively as part of his 2019 tour opener at Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona on Thursday night.
There’s plenty to choose from in this week’s Release Day Picks including albums from Josh Ritter, Anders Osborne, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Foxygen, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Kevin Morby, The Mountain Goats, JJ Cale, Craig Finn, Nils Lofgren and Kiefer Sutherland.
