5.0 out of 5 stars Incendiary Blues - Pat's On Fire !!!, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blues On Fire (Audio CD)
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.
