CD Reviews

THIS CD HAS SOME VERY GOOD TRAVERS TUNES BUT..........
KENNIBUNK@AOL.COM | U.S. | 05/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I DON'T CARE FOR "BEST OF" RELEASES. I WOULD RATHER HAVE THE ORIGINAL ALBUMS ON CD. ANYONE HAVE THE RARE "RADIOACTIVE" ALBUM THEY ARE WILLING TO SELL? IN MY OPINION,ONE OF HIS BEST ALBUMS, AND TAKEN OUT OF CIRCULATION. MINE HAD HOLES WORN THROUGH IT FROM EXCESSIVE PLAY AND I'VE BEEN TWELVE YEARS SEARCING FOR ANOTHER COPY."
This recording is OK

"This recording is OK, But does anyone Know how to get a copy of Putting It Straight? I have a worn out copy of that recording and have been trying to replace it for a long time. It has the same cover as this "Best Of..." And is my personal favorite. Michael"
Very Good Compilation...But Not Enough Meat & Potatos

"3 1/2 Stars = Very Good

I really don't like "Best of" compilations, they're always hit & miss. "The Best of Pat Travers" is no exception, even though I rated it 3 1/2 stars. If this was someone elses "Best of," I'd rate it 4 or even 4 1/2 stars, but I'm talking about PT (a much higher standard), & PT's back catolog is filled with superior masterpieces not included here. This compilation just scratches the surface of one of the greatest unheralded talents in KILLER ROCK GUITAR. Though there are great songs from Pat's extensive 70's, 80's catalog like "Stevie", "Life in London", "Crash & Burn," "Heat in the Street", "Rock & Roll Suzie", "Amgwanna Kick Booty", "New Age Music," "Snorting Whisky", & the gorgeous "Dedication," the rest are just stabs (intentional?) for commercial appeal. Especially songs from Pat's last Polydor album "Hot Shot," where he either seems to be looking for a hit, or self parodying his best 70's material, rather thin. This might of been a result of Polydor pressuring him for sales, but none of these songs from "Hotshot;" "Killer" & "Women on the Edge of Love," & from "Black Pearl;" "I'd Rather See You Dead," deserve to be here when compared to his cutting edge influential Funk/Jazz/Blues/Metal of the 70's, nor any of the remaining unmentioned material on this complilation, hence the lower rating than some of the other reviewers here.

For those who are really interested in Pat, try "Putting it Straight," "Making Magic," & "Heat in the Street" (they're back in print!) in that order. Or, if you really want what would qualify as one of the greatest live albums ever, & a much more representative best of compilation, pick up "Go For What You Know."

One more thing....Please stop the Foghat comparisons. I've read numerous reviews comparing the two. Nothing against Foghat, but it's a very superficial & unfair comparison regarding both bands. I will concede though that both bands have done some great blues covers, but thats where the similarity ends.

Nuff said.
