iTunes Editors’ Notes

Silver Rails was recorded at London's Abbey Road studios with producer Rob Cass and a seriously well-stocked bench of musicians, including John Medeski and Cindy Blackman Santana from Bruce’s Spectrum Road project, guitarists Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music), Robin Trower, Bernie Marsden, Uli John Roth, and his own son Malcolm Bruce. His first solo album since 2003’s More Jack Than God, Silver Rails shows Bruce in better voice than might be expected, considering his 70 years. His playing never falters, sounding particularly nasty and purposefully distorted on the excellent “Drone,” a clear album highlight. “Candlelight” stutters and shuffles with Medeski’s organ coloring outside the rhythms. “Fields of Forever” is a lighter piano-based pop song that could be mistaken for John Cale. “Hidden Cities” recalls the heavier ends of Cream, where the roots of doom metal can be heard in its minor key. “Rusty Lady” is a blues track with Robin Trower that’s the British musician’s attack on Margaret Thatcher. The music varies, the playing acclimates, and Bruce shows the range of a musician a third of his age.

In that year, he joined Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated. Throughout the following decades...
