As his career as a stadium rock hero ground to a halt,Pat did what he knows best,he retreated into the blues and made an underated album,underated by all but his dedicated fans. If Jeff Healy,Walter Trout, Joe Bonamassa or Stevie Ray Vaughn(all superb players in their own right) had made this we would have seen it get rave reviews,sadly Pat Travers appears to be yesterdays man as far as the media is concerned

Still if you havent heard this,do yourself a favour,try and pick it up,its a composite collection of authentic blues,highlights are a plenty,its safe to say there isnt one particular track that stands head and shoulders above the rest,this is just classic blues from start to finish(the albums title is a dead giveaway),you could say he played it safe on this release but that would be missing the point.

superb music from a superb guitar player who doesn't get the credit he deserves

Faery dust has been sprinkled on this recording! Pat's first and best (by miles) Blues Bureau album. The songs are great, the productions great but there's a special vibe about the album that won't allow for "highhlights" or "best/worst tracks" - you have to listen to it all.

I really wanted to like this album a lot but I have to be honest I found it a little disappointing and for an album called blues tracks it felt a bit, no a lot, not bluesy..some good tracks but not enough for me...a fantastic guitarist but this one did not hit the mark...

Best blues/rock CD of all time! 22 Aug. 2004
By E. Voorhies - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is my all-time favorite blues/rock CD and I don't say that lightly. I'm a 51 year old blues/rock guitarist myself, and have seen and heard them all, beginning with Hendrix live back in '69. Pat has been a great influence on my playing and singing for many years, and is without a doubt the most underrated singer/guitarist of my generation. I agree with the other reviewer who said "There's no filler on this CD." Well that's the understatement of the year! Every single song is good enough to be a spine-tingling encore at a great Travers concert! I was playing this in Yahoo voice chat this afternoon and the people went crazy about it! Every time I would stop they would beg for more! I play music in there a is a regular room with good friends from all over the world, and we meet there every night and day. Pat has a certain funky style of singing and playing hard rock that I've heard with no one else,which is very rhythm and blues inspired. His natural ability to add just the right feel to the song, results in his version of a song sounding much better than the original. I can't say enough about this CD. Please get this... if good funky blues/rock moves you in your soul. You will be so'll include me in your will! I just put on the first song "Memory Pain" and a big smile just came across my face! It always does! Thank you God for pat Travers and this wonderful CD! AMEN.

Red Hot Rockin' Blues! 29 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Pat Travers is one of Rock and Roll's great unsung guitar hero's.
He is at the top of any list when it comes to hard rockin' blues guitarist... and this CD just further supports that claim.
"All killer and no filler" as they say...not a bad tune on the whole CD, as Pat never holds back and rocks at full tilt through out. His send up's of classic tunes are sharp and original and check out the PT tune..."calling card blues"...most excellent.
Buy this CD today!!!

Travers is back on form. 10 Jun. 2000
By Alistair Campbell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a truly excellent Travers album. It features a new version on Statesboro blues from "Makin Magic". Also it also has some eclectic choices for blues standards. If you like "In your face guitar rock" under the guise of a blues album this is the one for you. My personal favourite is Calling card blues. Check it out you won't be disappointed.
As Good As Cover Albums Get! 31 Mar. 2013
By JAMES MCCORMICK - Published on
Format: Audio CD
4 Stars = Classic

1992's, Pat Travers, "Blues Tracks," is the best album since PT's Polydor days. Then again, there was only one album in between, "School Of Hard Knocks." So, I'll even go it farther, it's the most consistent, if not the best album since his 70's masterworks. His 80's Polydor albums, all have three or four great songs on them, with the exception of his last, "Hot Shot," which in my opinion was his worse of that period. The only reason I say "Blues Tracks" is not his best since the 70's, is because it's a cover album, all covers except one, "Calling Card Blues," but PT makes these songs his own. He infuses many of them with his heavy blues/metal style, & they come off as monsters munching at your ears. Funny enough, he even remakes, "Statsboro Blues," which he covered in 1977's, "Makin' Magic" album. This cover version does not fair as well, as it lacks the high energy of the former. He also covers, ZZ Tops, "Just Got Paid," though very credibly, it's still a just by the numbers cover. PT really not doing anything with it to make it his own.

"Blues Tracks is a solid 4 star album, it may have even ranked a half of star higher, if this was not a cover album, but originals. Never the less, this gets done what it sets out to do, kick you in the gut with some heavy duty blues/rock that only PT can pull off, & in the long run, this may very well be PT's best album after his Polydor days! It's all subjective.
STANDING PAT 9 July 2013
By Jukebox Dave - Published on
Format: Audio CD
PAT TRAVERS-BLUES TRACKS: PAT TRAVERS has never taken a subtle approach to the blooze; his signature seventies tunes included a smoke 'n mirrors regurgitation of LITTLE WALTER's BOOM BOOM! OUT GO THE LIGHTS and his own hard edged ode to excess SNORTIN' WHISKEY (DRINKIN' COCAINE). Like his contemporaries RICK DERRINGER and LESLIE WEST, TRAVERS unleashed a string of rootsy, ball busting platters starting in the nineties, paying over the top homage to his RNB heroes. Soulful cornerstones such as BLIND WILLIE MCTELL's STATESBOROUGH BLUES (best known as an ALLMAN BROTHERS staple) and several gritty HOWLIN' WOLF ditties get the patented slash 'n burn TRAVERS treatment, pumped chock full of his well worn arsenal of riffs, licks and growling JOHNNY WINTER-like vocals (he even tackles the WINTERS-associated MEMORY PAIN). Impressively, OTIS RUSH's mournful crawl I CAN'T QUIT YOU and JUNIOR PARKER's tantalyzing trip MYSTERY TRAIN both become hell bent romper-stompers in TRAVERS' capable mitts; if you like your blues loud, rowdy and screechin', pull up a barstool and let TRAVERS kick out the jams.
