Robin Trower  "Record Plant, Sausalito, Aug.11,1973 (Bootleg) UK Hard Blues Rock


Live at The Record Plant, Sausalito, CA, August 11, 1973. Broadcast on KSAN-FM.

Uncomfortable as guitarist for Procol Harum, Robin Trower found his calling when he formed a Hendrix-like trio with The Robin Trower Band. Now he could stand in the spotlight and let fly like his hero.
If true, it was Procol Harum's Broken Barricades that gave Robin Trower the reason for packing it up to form his own band. Barricades had Trower's best tune, his dedication to Hendrix - Song For A Dreamer, performed in the style he loved - with splendid guitar heroics. Procol Harum, however, relied more on keyboards and epic songwriting with Gary Brooker's magisterial voice.

When he formed The Robin Trower Band, he set out to do the two things he loved best about Jimi Hendrix - the slow ballads like Angel and the jet-speed numbers like Crosstown Traffic. Both types of songs are in plain sight on his first two albums, Twice Removed From Yesterday and Bridge Of Sighs. He also had in bassist James Dewar, a top howler and competent white soul singer. Dewar was formerly vocalist for Stone The Crows.

For this 1973 show, songs from both albums make up the setlist. The ballads I Can't Wait Much Longer and Daydream from his first album and fast numbers Day Of The Eagle, Lady Love and A Little Bit Of Sympathy from the second album.

Ultimately what makes Trower a follower rather than a leader are James Dewar's and Trower's own weak lyrics which Trower has admitted are "nonsense". That's how Dewar or Trower introduce A Little Bit Of Sympathy at this concert. All the songs for the first two albums are basically relationship songs, for want of a better word.
