Hailed as one of the finest guitarists in rock history, Robin Trower's career has spanned more than four decades.
In 1967, Trower received his big break when he joined Procol Harum; and remained a member until 1972.
After leaving Procol Harum, Trower embarked on his solo career, formed a power trio that transformed him into a celebrated guitar innovator. His early albums share a tough, explosive guitar style mixed with his trademark "soft psychedelia" that made Robin Trower stand out from the rest of the crowd.
Trower released his solo debut, 'Twice Removed From Yesterday', in 1973. The album barely left a dent in the US charts, but that would change soon enough with his next release 1974's 'Bridge of Sighs'. The album skyrocketed into the US Top Ten, peaking at number seven selling a million and a half copies. It still sells 15,000 copies yearly worldwide.
