5.0 out of 5 stars Incendiary Blues - Pat's On Fire !!! 2 Sep 2012
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a blast this disc is,havent smiled so much for some time at a Travers' album.Its the blues nothing but the blues, 7 out of 12 song titles contain the word blues(if you were in any doubt),there's no Snortin Whisky or Drinkin Cocaine here.

Hands up all who thought Pat had joined ZZ Top when 'Black Dog Blues' strode from the speakers? its a recurring theme,this is the disc you been wanting ZZ Top to release for the last 20 years.Smile when you listen to 'Nobodys Fault But Mine' and think of all those bands who would have had you believe that they thought up those riffs and licks all on their own.Thats a recurring theme also,it all sounds so familiar , so comfortable and effortlessly played by Travers and his current band.

There's humour,listen to 'Nobody Knows You When Your Down And Out',god you could just see David Lee Roth covering that,sing along,tap your feet to 'Bulldozer Blues' the smile on your face will be instant,apart from one track 'Death Letter' which is mournful and sad,its pretty much all good humoured tales of booze and women ,you can tell the band had a ball recording this.

The production is sparse and enhances the whole aura,the band superb all unknown to me,apart from former Molly Hatchet drummer Sean Shannon(who handled production)

This is an excellent release,wasn't quite sure what to expect but i might just have found my album of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Living Legend 28 April 2013
By James
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pat Travers has made many superb albums over the years and this is yet another. There seems to be a trend for well established blues/rock guitarists to go back to their roots and cover some old classics or write new songs in the classic style of the original bluesmen. This doesn't disappoint and Pat Travers has always played the blues with incredible intensity and passion which comes through on every note. Well worth the investment and I would recommend it to any fan of blues or rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old (songs) New (sound) Borrowed and Blues 1 Aug 2012
By R. Muir
Format:Audio CD
Pat Travers has returned to the blues for his 2012 solo album and this time he's gone back to some of the old-time standards that helped shape the sound of modern blues.

Blues on Fire features songs that date back to the 1920's and were part of the era that would become known as "the birth of the blues."

The twelve covers on the album are refreshing, modern interpretations of the eight-decade old standards with gritty vocals and even grittier guitars.
There are acoustic-led numbers on display and some piano and organ runs that add to the various shades of blues, but most of the songs put a rock edge on the old-blues.

The opening number, the rag time blues of Blind Arthur Blake's `Black Dog Blues' gets a great raw and riffing makeover and is the lead-off single from the album.

`Meat Shakin' Woman' (by the great rag time guitarist Blind Boy Fuller) gets a similar, punchy rock and roll update while Blind Willie Johnson's `Nobody's Fault But Mine' is closer to the original and features some nice acoustic slide touches from Travers.

The slower side of the blues is represented by `Back Water Blues,' made famous by legendary blues singer Bessie Smith and including almost obligatory for the genre "woke up this morning..." lyrics.
Bessie Smith was also one of many to put their blues or jazz stamp on the standard `Nobody Knows When You're Down and Out' and the Blues on Fire version has a great honky-tonk barroom blues arrangement.
