Coming Closer to the Day Robin Trower (Gold Vinyl)
Vinyl LP pressing. Coming Closer to the Day was recorded at Studio 91 in Newbury, England, with engineer Sam Winfield. Regarding the new songs, Trower said, " 'Diving Bell' is probably my favorite track on the album. 'Truth Or Lies, ' that one was quite hard to pull off. I love the song, but I recorded it once and wasn't happy with it, so I started from scratch again. It's got quite a strong early R&B flavor to it. That song is not really about me. I'm writing from the viewpoint of a guy whose loved one has been messing around. 'Someone Of Great Renown, ' again, that song isn't about me, but it's maybe someone that I'd like to be." - About the subject matter of the title track, the 73-year-old Trower said, "I'm saying that I'm nearer the end than the beginning. But that doesn't scare me. Not at all. If I went tomorrow, I'd feel like I'd been blessed with being able to achieve an incredible amount as a musician."
