The sun don't shine
The moon don't move the tides,
to wash me clean
Sun don't shine
The moon don't move the tides,
to wash me clean
Why so unforgiving and why so cold
Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs

Cold wind blows
The Gods look down in anger,
on this poor child
Cold wind blows
And Gods look down in anger,
on this poor child
Why so unforgiving and why so cold
Been a long time crossing Bridge of Sighs

"Bridge Of Sighs" was the title track from Robin Trower's second solo album released, after he left Procol Harum, in 1974. The album was produced by Procol Harum's organist Matthew Fisher and was engineered by acclaimed Beatles soundman Geoff Emerick.

This is an album filled with incredible songs, including the eerie, windblown soundscape of the title track, "Too Rolling Stoned", "Day Of The Eagle", "Little Bit Of Sympathy", "The Fool And Me", "In This Place", and others.....all featuring Robin's exquisite and original guitar....whether propelling the song forward or winding lazily through it, this album is a masterpiece of guitar rock. And Robin Trower remains one of the premier players in the genre, critically acclaimed for his work, yet still somehow strangely underrated and under-recognized for his work from the last several decades.

This particular track was taken from 2007's box set, A Tale Untold, the remaster.........xxxxxxxxxxxx

The video was based on what I had done with my previous Robin Trower video, "I Can't Wait Much Longer", mainly the mirrored cloud effect. I had actually intended to use only subtle shades of mostly grey and blue for this vid and had the video almost finished with this look, however although it was looking pretty cool and would have worked pretty nicely, after trying a couple of colors for contrast, I just caved in and went back and opened up the colors throughout the video. I've tried numerous times to work a video using very limited color palette and each time, as happened again with this one, I just cannot resist the more intense and beautiful effects that come from utilizing the full color spectrum....maybe one day, though!?
