Twice Removed From Yesterday – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Announced

Twice Removed From Yesterday is Robin Trower’s first solo album after leaving Procol Harum in 1971 and hooking up with Frankie Miller in the band Jude.

Featuring ex-Stone The Crows bassist/ vocalist James Dewar and Reg Isidore on drums, it was originally released in March 1973 and heralded the beginning of this legendary power trio, paving the way for Robin to be the deserved guitar hero that he is.

Guitar Player Magazine features ‘Bridge of Sighs’ at the BBC 1974

An article featuring some classic tracks and a recent interview for ‘Coming Closer to the Day’

“Between his organically thick sustaining guitar tone and ear-catching note selection, Robin Trower is one of a few guitarists whose signature can be identified within a few seconds of hearing him play.

He’s never been one to follow the obvious route in his soloing, choosing to energize his blues phrases with unexpected twists and an emotive quality that wrings the most from every single note.”

Robin Trower premieres new video ‘Birdsong’

Robin Trower released a new video for ‘Birdsong’ on Wed 5th October. Robin said: ‘Birdsong’ is my favourite track from ‘No More Worlds to Conquer’ (Mascot 2022). In fact, I think it could be the best thing I’ve ever done. In my eyes, I just can’t find fault with it.

“I had this particular piece of music for a while. The guitar parts and a melody for the vocals were there, but the song didn’t really come together ’till I saw a documentary about the First World War. It really struck me and got in my head. After I watched it, I started to write lyrics, and that’s what tied everything together.

“I don’t really do big demos anymore; I just play and sing into a little recorder. So with that, we went into the studio, and my engineer, Sam, put down a drum rhythm, and I laid down the guitar. We kind of make the demo as we record the song. Then we lay down all the guitar parts and the bass, and Richard Watts comes in to do the vocals. He did a great job on this track.
