Robin Trower – Bridge Of Sighs -1974- Prog Rock (vinyl)
Bridge of Sighs is the second solo album by the English guitarist and songwriter Robin Trower. Released in 1974, it was his second album after leaving Procol Harum, and was a commercial breakthrough for Trower. Songs such as "Bridge of Sighs", "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day of the Eagle" and "Little Bit of Sympathy" became live concert staples.
In an interview with Guitar World Trower explained how the album got its title. Robin said that he had had the first line of the song for years and one day saw some sport pages which listed a racehorse called Bridge of Sighs, which he thought would be a great title.
Bridge of Sighs (Chrysalis 1057) reached #7 in the United States during a chart stay of 31 weeks. It was certified Gold on 10 September 1974. Early printings of the original album cover had the front image upside-down and were more greenish in colour.
"Day of the Eagle" was covered by Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens on his third solo album Memory Crash. Tesla also covered the song on their 2007 Real to Reel album as did Armored Saint on their Nod to the Old School record.
