When Robin Trower left Procul Harum in 1971, he opted for a slightly less velvet-draped sound, basing his new songs on bluesy riffs and gritty vocals. This second solo album is arguably his best, and definitely his most popular, going gold and providing charting hits like the intense title ballad and the churning, funky "Too Rolling Stoned." The 2007 reissue contains eight new tracks--classic John Peel live sessions from 1975 that capture Trower's trio at the smoking height.
