Great album- little different
This is a solid album from one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Different lineup but same great chops and tasteful leads from a master!! Different direction on this album but one of my favorites nonetheless. It might take a few listens, but it will grow on you if you give it a chance. Great record.
Forgotten, but not forgotten...
Why “Love Won’t Wait Forever” didn’t become a huge #1 hit of 1988 only goes to show you how much the idiots in the Chrysalis cocoon were asleep. Trower hates this album, and aside from “Take What You Need” and “Love Won’t Wait Forever”, I can see why, but this is no excuse as to why his own production company wouldn’t spend the money to catapult this beautiful collection of vinyl to the general FM listening audience. Once again - as is so common in the Blues….his loss, our bloody gain.
I have not seen as good a guitarist as Robin Trower
I bought this many eons ago on vinyl. So much better on ITunes. This is up there with his best. Back in the day I tried to play all the licks on my Stratocaster, even If I copied them exactly nothing like the original.
I remember a friend's father playing this album when I was just a teen. I immediately had to run out and buy it. This album is quality music with an incredible guitarist. I think the Fabulous Thunderbirds had to have been influenced by Robin Trower; very similar vibe. This one is worth buying.
one of the best albums
I haven't heard music like this since Jimi Hendrix. since I didn't get to see Hendrix in concert Robin Trower is the next best thing. I went to his concert in Hollywood at the House of Blues and it was awesome. In fact I'm going again this Thursday in Santa Ana CA at the Galaxy Theatre. I absolutely love his music and his guitar playing.
I haven't seen guitar playing like that in some time now.
Exceptional CD from a exceptional Guitarist!
I bought this years ago, as a cutout cassette. Remembering Trower mostly from Bridge of Sighs, I was looking forward to hearing what he was doing at that time. This is a solid rock CD. He has a crack band behind him and the songwriting was top knotch. Listen to Take what you need and Love won't wait forever, and see what I mean.
