Bridge of Sighs is the second solo album by the English guitarist and songwriter Robin Trower. Released in 1974, it was his second album after leaving Procol Harum, and was a commercial breakthrough for Trower. Songs such as "Bridge of Sighs", "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day of the Eagle" and "Little Bit of Sympathy" became live concert staples. The album was produced by organist Matthew Fisher, formerly Trower's bandmate in Procol Harum.

Complete your Robin Trower collection. The old records are left to mold in the. This album, or rather the first four Robin Trower albums, from "Twice removed from Yesterday" in 1973 to "For Earth Below" in 1975," and especially "Live," also from 1975, are essential in any collection of early '70s hard rock.

Guitarist Robin Trower's watershed sophomore solo disc remains his most stunning, representative, and consistent collection of tunes. Mixing obvious Hendrix influences with blues and psychedelia, then adding the immensely soulful vocals of James Dewar, Trower pushed the often limited boundaries of the power trio concept into refreshing new waters. The concept gels best in the first track, "Day of the Eagle," where the opening riff rockingly morphs into the dreamy washes of gooey guitar chords that characterize the album's distinctive title track that follows.

From his 1974 album Bridge of Sighs. Robin Trower - Lead guitar James Dewar (RIP 1942 - 2002) - Bass and vocals Reg Isidore - (RIP 1949 - 2009) Drums. Lyrics: The sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides To wash me clean. Sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides To wash me clean. Why so unforgiving and why so cold Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs. Cold wind blows The Gods look down in anger On this poor child. Cold wind blows And Gods look down in anger On this poor child.

The year was 1974 and Robin Trower had released his second studio album known as, Bridge of Sighs. Robin Trower is a fantastic guitarist and has very good writing ability on this one. But his words are said through James Dewar, the bassist, who is also a skilled singer. His vocals are very fitting for the albums atmosphere I’ve come to notice. Also with Geoff Emerick, their sound engineer, every track sounded great. Trower’s guitar throughout the album sounds awesome and sloppy. He plays all the notes he wants and makes it sound killer

  • As a Hendrix fan myself, I do possess a number of Robin Trower albums, including this particular one. This is a good album, but I would advise lovers of Hendrix to listen to Frank Marino and Eric Gayles first.

  • This is THE quintessential Robin Trower album, with Trower's guitar complemented so well by Dewar's haunting voice. It has stood the test of time and is one of my very favourite albums (from anyone). Whilst some thought of Trower as a Hendrix impersonator, that is an unfair label as he has his own style.

  • This is one of those albums every rock guitar fan should have. Robin owns the Hendrix influence as the foundation for his own brilliance and can that be a bad thing? Not one song is a throwaway. Day of the Eagle gallops along as if Paul McCartney had a hand in the composition, and then I love the mournful portentous title song, a staple of AOR FM that segues into In This Place so beautifully. Too Rolling Stoned is masterful and Little Bit of Sympathy is such a fantastic exclamation point. How is it the world didn't recognize Bassist James Dewar as a truly great vocalist? Leon Russell and Joe Cocker, how often did they attain to the greatness of Dewar here? Blues-soaked rock, heavy, powerful, measured, allowed to breathe before decanting. If you loved Cream or Hendrix, you can't help but want to own this one!

  • Absolutely the definitive album out of Trower's extensive output collection.Trower's spellbinding Guitar work combined with Dewar's so soulful voice blends perfectly with the rhythm section to produce an album where every track is captivating from start to finish.Stand out tracks include BRIDGE OF SIGHS,EAGLE HAS LANDED AND ROLLING STONED.The standard of material is first class and Trower's driving guitar creates an album that sounds as fresh today as it did in the mid seventies.

  • In combining the Cream/Hendrix template with prog rock sophistication, and pure heaviness, it's a rare album that perfectly balanced the past, present, and future.

  • The best studio album by Robin Trower. Day Of The Eagle gets things started off and it really doesn't slow down from there. You also have to hear Too Rolling Stoned. The guitar about halfway thru is outstanding. You can tell by this album that Trower was a huge Hendrix fan. Either start with this album or the Live album. Both are full of fantastic guitar work and great songs.

  • "I think I'll just sit this one out..." And after that odd statement, a really good album lifts off to greatness. Chunky and funky, Mr. Trower slays, and as all have noticed, Dewar has the perfect voice for this sound. Oddly, Reg Isidore gets neglected, and on Lady Love, he brings in just the right amount of cowbell. So there is that.

  • An absolute must have album for anyone seeking great songwriting, vocals guitar blending together in total bliss. This LP is a perfect example of classic music. If you grew up with this, you know what I mean. No filler, this waits for the next deciple.

  • Brilliant musical statement that's all Robin Trower. The true music aficionado will see beyond the Hendrix influence and hear this record for what is is - a music gem. From the opening track to the last track, the song sequencing is what all records should aim for. Like any great story this one ends on a high note with my favorite track - A Little Bit of Sympathy. Listening to this record right now with a big smile on my face and of course air guitaring along with Robin...

  • Too old, Jimmy's gone and this pays tribute to those song long sounds that emanated from some tall castle in Europe. An extension of those times, for me, cannot justify the George Washington's needed to satisfy the vendor.
