iTunes Review

Pat Travers' love for the blues and loud, fierce rock 'n' roll comes through on the album following his career high point, the incendiary concert album Live! Go for What You Know. Travers is in fine voice here, with enough dexterous guitar licks to keep air guitarists quite busy. Though he hails from Toronto, he has enough southern soul in his singing and playing to make "Can't Be Right" a great R&B-fused hard rock tune. But the obvious highlight here is the AOR hit "Snortin' Whiskey," which takes Lynyrd Skynyrd's southern rock and amps it up for the '80s. His take on Albert King's "Born Under a Bad Sign" is positively ferocious, with a guitar tone that's thick and present. Travers' take on Bob Marley's "Is This Love" fixes up reggae for the hard rock crowd and leaves enough room for Travers to really sing. Travers' keyboard playing fleshes out the group and brings a new dimension to the album's title track.

The turning point for PT

This album was the point where Pat Travers sold out. It's still a good listen but not the intensity as his prvious efforts. I was very dissapointed when I got this album but tried real hard to love it. Don't get me wrong there are still some good songs on it it's just not Super Bad like the rest of his stuff was.

If you're looking for essential Pat Travers...this is it!

I've seen PT about 5 times in the 80's and without a doubt, this is a must have in your library. Crash and Burn and Snortin' Whiskey are true rock anthems that every guitar player wanted to learn.

Most of my favorites

I had this on cassette tape when it came out. I used it so much I wore it out. "Snortin Whiskey", "Crash and Burn", "Born Under a Bad Sign" are really strongly sung and played. Saw them 3 times in large and small venues. Really impressed every time. "Tight" and "strong" say it all in my opinion. PT ROCKS!!

While most bluesy hard rock acts of the '70s and '80s hailed from the United States (the South, to be exact), there were several exceptions to the rule, such as Canadian singer/guitarist Pat Travers. Born in Toronto on April 12, 1954, Travers first picked up the guitar just prior to entering his teens after witnessing a local performance by the great Jimi Hendrix. It wasn't long before Travers was studying the other top rock guitarists of the day (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, etc.), and paying...
