2010 three CD collection containing his five Chrysalis albums between 1973 -1976 plus bonus tracks (b-sides, outtakes, edits and previously unreleased tracks). Robin Trower initially found fame in the late 1960s as the guitarist with Procol Harum before embarking on a solo career in 1973. The Chrysalis Years 1973-1976 is augmented by the rare b-side, 'Take A Fast Train', single edits of 'Day of The Eagle', and 'Long Misty Days', previously unavailable on CD, and finishes with the previously unreleased 'Let Me Be The One', a rare outtake from Long Misty Days. EMI.
Great album from an overlooked top guitarist

"I've always enjoyed listening and watching Robin Trower. He is a much maligned guitarist, the claim is that his style is copied directly from Jimi Hendrix. In the 70's that was considered sacrilege. However, with that being said, he is still one of the best guitarist of the current era. His rocking bluesy style is fantastic, James Dewars soulful vocals are a terrific complement. I saw Robin a couple of times in the 70's and he always put on a great show. I will admit his facial contortions were always "interesting" I love the fact that we get all the albums here, as opposed to the Anthology that usually comes along.
If the accusation is that he's not a creative genius then in the same breath he showed be extolled as one of the best guitarists to listen to. So much better and more talented than the Joe Satriani's & Yngwie Malmesteen's that came along.
Great box set for a legendary guitarist"
