BLT at their best

"Don't buy this CD. It's truly brilliant but you can buy both of TROWER and BRUCE's collaborations ( BLT and TRUCE ) on 1 CD, that way you not only get the best output from BRUCE but 2 for the price of one. This CD was recorded in 2 days and displays BRUCE's voice and TROWER's playing at their best within a fairly sparse framework leaning heavily on the blues. This is however not a blues album as a lot of other influences come to play as well. As with all TROWER CD's ( I've got all 23 of them ) his playing is reliant more on tone and emotion than on outright speed. If you like TROWER or BRUCE you must have this as it shows
both of them of at their best while being easily accessible ( some of BRUCE's solo efforts can be a bit obtuse ) and totally enjoyable."
Somewhat dated, great vocals & bass playing, driving.

"Although this does not show Bruce & Trower at their top form, it does give a fine example of their virtosity within a hard rock enviroment. If comparing it to Cream, there is no comparison, however Trower is adds what Clapton has tried to avoid ever since he left Derek & the Dominoes "powerfull guitar playing. Although Bruce seems to hold back his fluid bass playing in order to showcase Trower, his vocals and the overall effort constitute a very good album. It's too bad the bad never toured, they wold have been an interesting trio to see live."
