Bridge of Sighs is the second solo album by the English guitarist and songwriter Robin Trower. Released in 1974, it was his second album after leaving Procol Harum, and was a commercial breakthrough for Trower. Songs such as "Bridge of Sighs", "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day of the Eagle" and "Little Bit of Sympathy" became live concert staples. The album was produced by organist Matthew Fisher, formerly Trower's bandmate in Procol Harum.

I just thought, 'Wow, what a great title for a song. So, when I started to work on the lyric, I incorporated that. He said that's Robin Trower dude. I was immediately hooked and went out and bought every album I could find. Still a huge fan 30 years later. Phil from San Jose, CaRobin Trower and band is terrific! James Dewar was the Pavarotti of Rock, great deep voice. Trower is underated in my opinion, to many unfair comparasions to Hendrix.

Bridge of Sighs Lyrics. The sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides To wash me clean. Sun don't shine The moon don't move the tides To wash me clean. Why so unforgiving and why so cold? Been a long time crossing bridge of sighs. Cold wind blows The Gods look down in anger On this poor child. Cold wind blows And Gods look down in anger On this poor child. Bridge of Sighs" Track Info. Cover By. Bridge of Sighs by Opeth. Bridge of Sighs by The Mountain Goats

My copy of this album has a flipped image on the sleeve. Record is exactly the same though, down to the matrix/runout information. Does anyone else have a copy like this?

I've just discovered Trower and to my delight and amazement, I can't seem to get over the eerie resemblance to Chris Cornell and Sound Garden. The dark-melancholy tones and drones of Trower's heavy bluesy guitar and Dewar's slightly more polished- on key voice than Cornell, but with the same style. I wouldn't be surprised if Robin Trower was a huge influence of Cornell & Thayil. This was a pleasant finding for a Sound Garden/Cornell fan. Can't wait to explore more of Trower's work. It comes at a good time, now that Sound Garden is no more.

My thought exactly, I hear Soundgarden in this. Or should I say this in Soundgarden.

One of the great heavy rock albums that accompanied many a dope-smokin' evening back in '74, that is unjustly, and, unfortunately for fans of Black Keys and Earthless and such, forgotten. The old records are left to mold in the .50 cent bins. This album, or rather the first four Robin Trower albums, from "Twice removed from Yesterday" in 1973 to "For Earth Below" in 1975," and especially "Live," also from 1975, are essential in any collection of early '70s hard rock. Trower, with his heavy distorted dark-toned strat, could hammer out a riff that fell somewhere between Hendrix and Sabbath, and while more hard blues than doom, his playing brings to mind a black-lit room permeated with the smell of sweet leaf, inhabited by someone who probably looks something like David Gilmore in the Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii film. Also, Trower could really play, having come from Procol Harum, a very different but tasty bowl of... soup.

Great write-up, I had a similar little blurb I wrote awhile back about the first few Trower albums. I argued that if Trower, Isidore, and Dewar maybe had a band name they would have been a heavy trio in the vein of Budgie, Dust, or Sir Lord Baltimore, and might have more appeal today (especially if they had a "Doomy" name). I feel like people just getting into collecting vinyl and older music would be put off by just a solo artist's name, and "Robin" doesn't exactly insinuate Hard Rock. It's a shame, the kids need to know!

funny you mention the 50 cent bin that is where I saved this from after borrowing my friends copyI saw this at a record store in pretty good shape...now it is resting on my shelf with my other records
