AllMusic Review by

Recorded on October 18, 1977, at the New Haven Coliseum in Connecticut, King Biscuit Flower Hour captures Robin Trower moving into a more R&B-driven phase of his career, although the heavy blues-rock of his smash Bridge of Sighs album is amply represented in addition to the newer material on In City Dreams, the album he was supporting at the time. For this performance, originally broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show, Trower's band features vocalist James Dewar, bassist Rusty Allen, and drummer Bill Lordan, formerly of Sly & the Family Stone. It's a versatile band, and in some ways, the live venue is an even better way to hear them than on their studio output.
