Good to hear there’s no stopping for Robin Trower, who just released a new studio album entitled Where You Are Going To, by Manhaton Records.  Trower was a member of Procol Harum in the 60s, and became known for his ‘soft psychedelia’. The legendary  blues rock guitarist and singer-songwriter is also going to be heading out on tour in October, starting in Norwich on 30th September.

The new album is a continuation of his last one, Something ‘s About to Change.  I’m particularly loving title track Where You Are Going To which delivers a slow and sexy vibe with velvety blues guitar; track three Back Where You Belong  starts with a Voodoo Chile variation before a driving bass line kicks in, to take the song into a solid rocking blues number. And I’m Holding on to You (dedicated to the memory of Trower’s late wife) is memorable for its haunting and wistful quality. This is a strong collection of songs which will sound great on the upcoming tour.

Special guest on all shows is Stevie Nimmo. All tickets: £25.00
