I have none of his music. Recommendations? Thanks, David
Bridge of Sighs. The only studio lp of his I own, have one or two live shows as well.
It totally captures the heavy, Jimi-influenced sound of his guitar and the great low voice of Dewar.
The songs are atmospheric or rocking. really in your face with no apologies.
For my money it has the best material overall.
You will find he has many fans here who will recommend other releases as well, but if you're kind of like me and just exploring, this is the place to start. I've never heard any other lp that grabbed me the way Bridge did. He did have a cool b side called Take a Fast Train that only came out on cd a few years ago. It's a re-write of Jimi's Fire, but it's still cool.
His best album is his second one, "Bridge Of Sighs". You can't go wrong with that one.
You could also start from his first album "Twice Removed From Yesterday", then work your way forward. His first 5 albums are all top notch.
The live album is decent.
I suggest "For Earth Below" A great follow-up to "Bridge of Sighs" (better in my opinion). All the albums with James Dewar are a must. As for the albums when Davey Pattison (ex Gamma vocalist) sang with Trower, I would recommend "Passion, "Go My Way" and "Living Out of Time".
Not only those, but dig back.
Get the first five Procol Harum lps.
Beautiful deep cut imo.
Another great jam. Hendrix inspired, Trower delivers and Stevie Ray studies.
Bridge Of Sighs is his masterpiece.
Twice Removed From Yesterday highlights his Hendrix influence & is a great album.
An expanded version of the live album would be wonderful.
James Dewar really is a superb singer
Have this 3 cd box , first 5 albums great set
Good grief! Shopping around online, his stuff is $$$$$!!!!!
I started with this, covered everything I needed.
Bridge of Sighs
Yes I haven't come across too many of his albums (cd's) when out on the hunt which suprised me.
Although Bridge Of Sighs often crops up
Bridge of Sighs is the only one I know. And it's a good one.
The third and fourth Procol Harum albums. Then move forward to the First four solo album.
Bridge Of Sighs>Twice Removed From Yesterday>Long Misty Days>Victims Of The Fury>For Earth Below
I like the live album too, Caravan To Midnight and In City Dreams aren't bad per say I just rarely reach for them over the 5 I listed above. Big fan though, I still need to check out the stuff with Jack Bruce
Anything with James Dewar as his vocalist.
Go to Bull Moose they have some of his stuff used at a reasonable level.
I agree with the early albums being his best.
I want to add I liked In City Dreams. I listened to it a bit when I was a teenager in the late 70's.
Start with his first two albums...
Twice Removed From Yesterday
Bridge of Sighs
