    Robin Trower is playing the House of Blues tonight in San Diego. Cannot wait, one of my biggest influences. Love Robin. Who else is going?

    I won't be going, I'm about 2,000 miles away. :)

    That song you posted reminded me of the one and only time I saw Trower live in 1988 because it was the same era. My cover band back the covered Love Attack, because it was 'new' music and we didn't like most of the big hair stuff that was out at the time.

    Have fun!

    Awesome. Hope you post a review. I have been a fan for a long time and love his earlier work. Funny enough my better half discovered him the other day and introduced his music to me..... She has great taste!

    He's done some great stuff in modern times, too. Seven Moons (2011-ish/) with Jack Bruce is nice !

    He was just here...I chose not to go because my daughter and SIL was in town from Germany. He has been a favorite of mine since the beginning.

    Well an update on my own post. ... I have asked my better half to get this for me some newer Robin Trower as a gift. :whistling:

    Gotta love these forums as source for finding and re discovering favorite or new bands.

    Back It Up is an exceptionally good one, i.m.o. . From 1983








    One of his most beautiful songs ever, imo : RIVER


    It also has Benny Dancer

    No nonsense; no trying to fit in commercially, just
    tons and tons of Robin's archetypal , balls-out ,
    flame-on, blues rock, with large doses of the psychedelic
    beauty that's at the heart of my favorite music of his .

    The Playful Heart (2010) is also very good . He utterly destroys it
    towards the end of this one : 2:25 on = demolition

    Thanks Dogboy for all the info. I see my Trower collection expanding which is great as these days there is less and less music that fits my needs. :thumb:
