    I first heard this record in 1974 coming from a dorm window at Syracuse University during spring break thinking it was a Jimi Hendrix record with Jack Bruce singing. Did not find out it was Robin Trower, James Dewar and Reg Isidore until the 80's. I have the 1974 Santa Maria and the 1974 Terra Haute pressings. I found it odd that the cover art is opposite hand on each pressing. Both are great sounding and have no issues. By the way, Trower did a record with Jack Bruce called BLT.

      I have a version with strange etching mark ("G 7") that is making me crazy, I do not know how shelf this in my collections there is tons of similiraties encountered on these versions below, but nothing mentioned this etched mark on Side 1 Runout/Matrix of the 1974 pressings.

      I've read now some forums threads that already condemn and closed, so I cannot be able to receive a bit of tips regarding this. As it seems it is related to one these above mentioned pressing plants, but imprinted in different machines.

        My copy of this album has a flipped image on the sleeve. Record is exactly the same though, down to the matrix/runout information. Does anyone else have a copy like this?

          I've just discovered Trower and to my delight and amazement, I can't seem to get over the eerie resemblance to Chris Cornell and Sound Garden. The dark-melancholy tones and drones of Trower's heavy bluesy guitar and Dewar's slightly more polished- on key voice than Cornell, but with the same style. I wouldn't be surprised if Robin Trower was a huge influence of Cornell & Thayil. This was a pleasant finding for a Sound Garden/Cornell fan. Can't wait to explore more of Trower's work. It comes at a good time, now that Sound Garden is no more.

            One of the great heavy rock albums that accompanied many a dope-smokin' evening back in '74, that is unjustly, and, unfortunately for fans of Black Keys and Earthless and such, forgotten. The old records are left to mold in the .50 cent bins. This album, or rather the first four Robin Trower albums, from "Twice removed from Yesterday" in 1973 to "For Earth Below" in 1975," and especially "Live," also from 1975, are essential in any collection of early '70s hard rock. Trower, with his heavy distorted dark-toned strat, could hammer out a riff that fell somewhere between Hendrix and Sabbath, and while more hard blues than doom, his playing brings to mind a black-lit room permeated with the smell of sweet leaf, inhabited by someone who probably looks something like David Gilmore in the Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii film. Also, Trower could really play, having come from Procol Harum, a very different but tasty bowl of... soup.
