CD Reviews

Vintage Pat Travers Rock 'N' Roll
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those of you who liked the Rock 'N' Roll Pat Travers, this is a sleeper. Released in 1990, you would think this was just a continuation of his career in the late 70's or early 80's. The title song is pure rocking Pat and Misty Morning in New Orleans is just extraordinary music. The entire CD is strong. This is well recorded and mixed in that its clean without taking away Pat's raw power. If you're a Rock 'N' Roll Pat fan, try to find a copy of this one, you won't be disappointed."
Back - and better than ever

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album means a lot to me. I'd been a PT fan since Makin' Magic and after playing Reading Festival in 1980, he disappeared from England for ten long years. This was the comeback album that preceded the tour and it's stunning. It's got everything. Rock, blues and a beautiful instrumental (Via Veneto). Fourteen tracks and there's not a dud among 'em. Pat was always the most exciting guitarist I ever heard, but he's a great songwriter too...and it's all here."
Guitars From Hell
William B. Hawley | Incline Village, Nevada United States | 01/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Guitars From Hell features a smoldering lead guitar exchange by Pat Travers and Jerry Riggs. Before this tune was released Pat's encore was generally Boom Boom or Makes No Difference from his 'debut" album, but when the Pat Travers Band, also featuring Peter "Mars" Cowling" on Bass guitar, went on The School Of Hard Knocks Tour in 1986, the encore changed to this smashing, riveting and harmonic Guitars From Hell. A pure instrumental delight and soul wrenching display of guitar work from the master Patrick Henry Travers. Buy it, because every other tune on this album is a sure fire favorite. I love Daddy Long Legs, Help Me Please, a 58-second Jimmy Hendrix Purple Haze Riff, a couple of top 40 tunes and of course the blazing School of Hard Knocks."
