Robin Trower – “Twice Removed From Yesterday”

Robin Trower \

Guitarist Robin Trower made a seamless jump from Procol Harum in the early 1970s to a solo career, exciting new audiences with his Jimi Hendrix-tinged sound and stylings. Trower turned up the reverb and unleashed walls of brooding, powerful sound from his Fender Stratocaster.

Though it would be his sophomore release, Bridge Of Sighs, that cemented his reputation as another guitar god, his debut, Twice Removed From Yesterday, is equally excellent and inspired. From the opening “I Can’t Wait Much Longer,” boosted with James Dewar’s great singing to the lovely Side Two closer, “Ballerina,” Twice Removed From Yesterday is one of Trower’s finest records.
