Robin George sings, and plays his trademark guitar and this album recorded during down time in Worcester's Old Smithy studio between 1979 and 1981. Aided by various musical luminaries, including Dave Holland and Charlie Morgan (Elton John) on drums, Pino Palladino (The Who) and Pete Wright (Trapeze) on bass, Daniel Boone, Mark Stanway (Magnum) and Terry Rowley (Trapeze) on keyboards with Mel Collins (King Crimson, Bad Company) on sax. 2 CDs of classic, melodic rock, this release features many photos from Robin's personal archive and the set is completed by previously unpublished liner notes from the late Malcolm Dome, a much missed and well-respected music journalist who had been a great supporter of Robin's career for over 40 years. 'Ace In My Hand' kicks off a campaign of exciting titles from Robin George, who will be available for interviews and press to promote this release. "Ace In My Hand' is not a nostalgia trip. It's a lesson in music for everyone. " Malcolm Dome. Over the years, Robin George has collaborated with many musical legends, from Thin Lizzy's Philip Lynott, Uriah Heep's David Byron, UFO's Pete Way, and The Quireboys' Spike to Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes. As a native of Wolverhampton, it's no surprise that a musician of his calibre would cross paths with local heroes Trapeze. Collaborating with Trapeze's Dave Holland on drums and vocalist Peter Goalby, a new look Trapeze was put on hold when Holland received an offer to join Judas Priest for a run of world-beating HM classics. Despite this, Robin had assembled a strong collection of material to draw upon for his solo debut 'History'. That album was followed by the hit single 'Heartline', a track that had a significant impact on both sides of the Atlantic, directly leading to Robin featuring on the cover of the important Kerrang! Magazine, as well as being championed by highly influential rock DJs Tommy Vance and Alan 'Fluff' Freeman.
