Recorded live on March 26, 1984 in West Palm Beach, Florida, this show captures Pat Travers at the peak of his career. Backed by Jerry Riggs (guitar), Barry Dunaway (bass), and Pat Marchino (drums), he grinds out a string of high-energy rock, including 'Hot Shot' and 'Killer', an extended 'Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights),' a cover of Albert King's 'Born Under a Bad Sign,' and 'La La La Love You' from the soundtrack 'Valley Girl'. The wattage is high and the tempos are ferocious, enough to make this one of the great live rock guitar showcase albums ever done.
A Slight Disappointment

"This is not a bad album but if you want to own just one live Pat Travers disc then you should skip this and buy "Go For What You Know." The King Biscuit album was recorded after the departure of lead guitarist, Pat Thrall, and his scorching leads are missed."
Don't let the different band lineup fool you...this rocks!

"Although this record doesn't have the classic lineup of Pat Thrall, Mars Cowling, and Tommy Aldridge, it rocks regardless. I also own Go For What You Know and the BBC record, but in some ways I like this one best out of the three live records. Part of it may be the more obscure songs done on this set in addition to those that I'm guessing Jerry Riggs sings lead on since it's not Pat singing on a couple of these. I was introduced to Pat's music about 10 years ago as he opened for Ted Nugent during a pre New Years Eve concert in Toledo, OH. I am not sure what lineup that was but it could've been this one since that's around the time of the School Of Hard Knocks CD which I now own and Riggs plays on that one, too. That show was awesome and I have been a fan ever since. This CD is highly recommended."

"Pat Travers is one uncompromising R&R monster .I saw him play his first show ever in San Francisco @ The Old Waldorf nightclub about 1976 .At that time it was a three man band .Saw him play probably 5 or 6 more times . This is my favorite live recording of him . I have "Go for What You Know" "Live BBC " and "Whiskey Blues" which I believe is also available on a DVD version called "Boom Boom"and under the title "Live at the Diamond Club".This CD , (KBFH) has the best live version of "Born Under a Bad Sign" which he still performs to this day in concert .It also has a great version of "Ready or Not" ,penned and sung by Jerry Riggs ,one of the young guitar slingers Pat brought into the spotlight.Pat's signature songs "Life in London" and "Gettin Better" are also here. The one thing that differentiates this record from "Whiskey" is that the great Peter "Mars" Cowling has left the band before this version of The PTB hit the road .Still ,they pull this performance off with huge powerful versions of the songs.I lost my first copy of this , thanks to Amazon for allowing me to repurchase it at a reasonable price .You cannot touch it on E Bay for much less than $16.00 ."
