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.
