Still two of my absolute all time favorites. Robin is still writing great music!

James Dewar has one of my favorite voices in all of rock.

Soulful, powerful, melodic.

Trower's never been able to find another vocalist at the same level.

I still love his playing... he sounds as good as ever!

Oh yeah, Trower also tunes down a whole step... let's him use big strings and get that "big" sound... especially on this album.

This song appears to be A/440, don't know about the strings! I do know it sounds heavyyyyyyyyyyy.
Tuning down a step and heavy strings may be what he is up to now?
I first heard this on 8 track.

Very cool playing and tone but isn't the guitar playing just Hendrix to a tee? Not that its a bad thing, just calling a spade a spade.

Davey Pattison has done a great job with Robin. The last record, The Playful Heart is one of Robin's best. But James Dewar defintely had one of the great voices in rock.

There's much that's unique in Robin's writing, playing and sounds. Trower does not deny a Hendrix influence, but he certainly has his own thing.
Yes, there are few that distilled the dreamy atmospheric side of Jimi's oeuvre as well as Trower (as this tune highlights), but that isn't the whole story.
