Robin Trower 'Farther On Up The Road: The Chrysalis Years 1977-1983' Due March 13

February 3, 2012
Following hot on the heels of last year’s A Tale Untold: The Chrysalis Years 1973-1976 (Robin Trower’s first anthology of the albums produced for Chrysalis Records), comes the companion collection, Farther On Up The Road: The Chrysalis Years 1977-1983.
Featuring a further six whole albums, this second volume collects together the remaining releases Robin recorded for the label, including two LP made with Cream’s legendary bassist and vocalist, Jack Bruce.  This 3CD set kicks off with 1977’s In City Dreams, which now features the 7” single edit of Bluebird, available on CD for the first time, followed by Caravan to Midnight from 1978. Next up is 1979’s Victims of the Fury, which now includes the rare b-side ‘One In A Million’. B.L.T., the first of two albums to feature Jack Bruce, was released in 1981, which was swiftly followed the following year by the album Truce.
The set is completed by Back It Up, the sixth album on this release (as well as his eleventh and last LP for Chrysalis) was originally released in 1983, and sees the return of Robin’s long term collaborator Jimmy Dewar, on bass and vocals.
