Editorial Reviews

Guitarist Robin Trower's watershed sophomore solo disc remains his most stunning, representative, and consistent collection of tunes. This 24-bit digitally remastered 25th anniversary reissue, which tacks on five live tracks adding nearly 25 minutes to the original playing time, actually improves upon the original. Mixing obvious Hendrix influences with blues and psychedelia, then adding the immensely soulful vocals of James Dewer, Robin 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 rocking morphs into the dreamy washes of gooey guitar chords that characterize the album's distinctive title track that follows.

Released in 1974 the ex-Procol Harum guitarst's solo career was definately heading in the right direction. With "Bridge Of Sighs" his second studio album Trower shows his fretboard abilities more than ever. His Hendrix inspired guitar solos are awe dropping as can be heard on such standout cuts as "Day Of The Eagle", "The Fool And Me", "Lady Love", "Too Rolling Stoned" and "Little Bit Of Sympathy". The eight added bonus tracks from The BBC Sessions which include "Bridge Of Sighs", "In This Place", "Alethea", "Little Bit Of Sympathy" sound very good and add almost thirty four minutes to this gem of a cd. Soundwise, it isn't that much of a drastic improvement from the older 1999 remaster (which also included bonus tracks) but it's miles ahead of the 1990 non-remastered version. If there's one Trower cd you buy, this should be it! A must have for any classic rock lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quissential 70's Rock December 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Robin Trower, both the man and the band, are two of the most underrated things in rock. Perhaps you have not even heard of him, and yet, if you are a fan of the blues-infected hard rock that was popular at the time of this record's release, or even simply a fan of great guitar playing, then this album belongs in your collection. There are several titanic tracks on this album, although every one of them is a winner. Day of the Eagle is a riveting hard rocker and a perfect album opener. The next song, the title track, is one of those rare songs that no matter how many times I hear it, I still love it. Other winners include In This Place and Little Bit of Sympathy. Too Rolling Stoned has a terrific guitar solo that is rarely ever mentioned as being one of the best. James Dewar is a good singer as well, and perfect for this type of music, not to mention being a great bass player. Reg Isidore on drums is more than competent.
As for the live bonus tracks, well, they are a nice addition but ultimately not essential. Why? Well, they are basically the songs from the album played live with little improvisitation, as you would expect from a concert for a radio show. Completely unlike Trower's 10-15+ minute improv jams that you can find on his real live albums. Not bad stuff, but I'd rather just hear the studio versions. The only jam here that exceeds the one on the actual album is Little Bit of Sympathy, as it has a somewhat extended guitar solo from Trower. Still, the album is well worth buying for what was there in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs" May 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Many consider this to be Trowers finest hour. As for myself I might enjoy Trowers first, "Twice Removed from Yesterday's" spacey strecthed out Hendrix inspired "Bold as Love" peroid explorations a hair more, but "Bridge of Sighs" is Trowers most focused album. It is hard to argue with the sonic explosion that is "Day of the Eagle," that starts this album. Just killer heavy duty blues/rock guitar turned up to eleven, then followed by one of Trowers finest heavy riffed spacey songs, the title song "Bridge of Sighs." WOW! I remember hearing these two songs in tandem back in the 70's & I was hooked for good. Trower is truely a master of his instrument, his thick tone, shimmering sustain, sense of melody, & passion really come off as some of the heaviest most melodic guitar playing known to rock. Pigeoned holed as a Hendrix clone, Trower is much more than that. He is Hendrix's ace disciple easly rivaling his mentor's inspiration with this album, & maybe even surpassing it.
The passionate singing of bassist Rob Dewar is an overlooked treasure on many of Trowers albums. Here on "Lady Love" Trower & Dewar crescend in a seamless whole of sincere delicate axemenship & impassioned singing to make it a listeners delight. On "Too Rolling Stoned" Dewar shows us he is able to thump the bass to Trowers rollicking leads & riffs. Trower shows some of his funk on "The Fool & Me." Really there is not a clinker in this whole album, it's is a collection of flawless work from a master of his instrument. For lovers of killer Rock guitar!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past July 28, 2006
By WillieB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Growing up I listened to Bridge of Sighs countless times and for good reason. It's a tremendous album with no filler. Robin Trower, a stellar guitar player, was obviously influenced by Hendrix and you hear it in his tone, solos and the heavenly blues/rock music. His band, at that time, Reg Isidore (drums), James Dewar (bass, vocals) held down a tight rhythm section, and James vocals (smooth, thick, beefy) are uniquely wonderful. Killer music has no expiration date, and this sounds as amazing today as it did when it was initially released in 1974.

The remastered version sounds good but not necessarily better than the original disc, just different. To me, it seems most remastered discs just boost the high frequencies and increase the volume, which is not always a good thing. The five live bonus tracks recorded in 1974 give you an idea of what this trio, that once played in stadiums, were capable of. Amazon lists these incorrectly; tracks 9 and 12 should be switched. It would have been nice for this "expanded edition" to include the lyrics and some photos but, overall, this is a classic rock disc and if you're a guitar player this is a must have.
