CD Reviews
BBC Live In Concert
Review by Gary Hill

Procol Harum consisted of Gary Brooker, Chris Copping, Mick Grabham, Alan Cartwright, B. J. Wilson and Keith Reid on this disc. This is a solid live recording featuring some good prog sorts of music from this classic outfit.

Robin Trower - Coming Closer to the Day
Review by Gary Hill

I've been a fan of Robin Trower since the 70s. For my money, the classic album from him is Bridge of Sighs, and that era is his best.

Jack Bruce - Silver Rails
Review by G. W. Hill

When you are Jack Bruce, it’s a safe bet you can get your pick of musicians who want to play with you. After all, when you were one third of one of the most influential bands of the 1960s (Cream), you have some clout. Bruce has used that clout to his advantage recruiting some impressive musicians to guest here. The end result is an album that’s exceptional. It might even make my best of 2014 list. There are moments here that call to mind Cream, but there are other sections that feels different than that. It’s all quite good, though.

As to those guests. Here’s a partial list of the musicians playing on the disc: Phil Manzanera, Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower and Cindy Blackman Santana. There are quite a few others, too. The lineup is just one attraction, though. Really the music is the main driving force here, and it’s great.
