“I don’t re­ally think my guitar sound or my ap­proach to my guitar sound has changed at all in 40 years,” Robin Trower told Gui­tarist mag­a­zine when they spoke to him last year, dur­ing the record­ing of this al­bum. “It’s still a Strat – al­right, it’s a slightly dif­fer­ent Strat than I used to play then – but it’s still a Strat through a pedal into a Marshall and that’s it, you know?” A mod­est mas­ter of un­der­state­ment, if ever there was one! At the age of 72, Trower is still pound­ing out a pow­er­ful blues-in­fused mes­sage after a ca­reer that has spanned six decades. Check out the sig­na­ture Strat-thru-Deja-Vibe tones on tracks like Bit­ten By The Snake and You’re The One on this al­bum to hear a true mas­ter at work – and watch out for Robin’s only live UK date this year at Is­ling­ton Assem­bly Hall on 29th Nov.
