Pat Travers

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 his dues by playing in bar bands in the Quebec area. His first true touring gig came his way when he hooked up with '50s rock n' roll vet Ronnie Hawkins (best known for performing with a backing cast that would eventually transform into The Band). But Travers' main love was hard rock, so after a year, he packed up his belongings and headed to London. Shortly after touchdown in the U.K., Travers recorded a demo that would land him a recording deal with Polydor and result in the release of his debut, Pat Travers, during the spring of 1976. A performance at England's annual Reading Festival the same year only peaked interest, which resulted in two more releases in 1977, Makin' Magic and Putting It Straight (both of which followed a pre-Iron Maiden Nicko McBrain on drums), before Travers returned to North America and set his sights on the U.S. rock market. Hooking up with a fine backing band comprised of drummer Tommy Aldridge, guitarist Pat Thrall, and bassist Mars Cowling, the new Travers band lineup premiered on 1979's Heat in the Street. This led to Travers' most commercially successful period, resulting in a pair of Top 30 releases, 1979's Live! Go For What You Know (considered by many Travers fans to be his finest hour) and 1980's Crash and Burn. But soon after the dawn of the '80s, bluesy hard rock seemed to quickly fall out of favor amongst the U.S. record buying public, in favor of slickly produced arena rock, and later, MTV-approved bands. As a result, each subsequent Travers release sold less, as his last albums to appear on the U.S. album charts included 1981's Radio Active, 1982's Black Pearl, and 1984's Hot Shot. Unhappy with Polydor, Travers opted to take a break from releasing albums for the remainder of the decade, but continued to tour. Travers' 1990 comeback album, School of Hard Knocks, failed to re-spark interest on the charts, although he continued to issue new studio albums (Blues Tracks, Just a Touch, Blues Magnet, etc.) and archival live sets (King Biscuit Flower Hour, BBC Radio One Live in Concert) throughout the decade. Travers continues to tour and record regularly (playing alongside the likes of Night Ranger's Jeff Watson, Cinderella's Tom Keifer, and Rick Derringer), and in 2001, performed as part of the 'Voices of Classic Rock' tour. Travers emerged from the recording studio once more in 2003, with P.T. Power Trio, a recording that featured covers by the likes of Cream ("White Room"), Robin Trower ("Day of the Eagle"), and ZZ Top ("Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings"), among others. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide

Pat Travers - Debut

картинка, оставленная пользователем

Track Listing
1. Stop & Smile
2. Magnolia
3. Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights)
4. Hot Rod Lincoln
5. Medley Parts 1 & 2
6. Feelin' Right
7. Makes No Difference
8. Mabellene
9. As My Life Flies

Pat Travers's self-titled debut still stands up as an example of fine 1970s hard rock. It contains the tracks "Stop and Smile," "Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)," and "Feelin' Right," among others.

The Canadian guitarist's debut album originally appeared on Polydor Records. When Pat Travers exploded on to the scene in 1976, people sat up and took notice. He played guitar with a passion and an intenstity that took everybody by surprise. This album is one of the great debut albums of the period. Tracks like "Makes No Difference" and "Medley Parts 1 & 2" are classic slices of 70's hard rock, but "Boom Boom" remains one of Travers' trademark crowd pleasers.

Halfway To Somewhere features legendary guitarist Pat Travers showcasing his hard-driving blues/rock style. Smoldering riffs and incendiary solos set the tone for this classic LP. Halfway to Somewhere also features lyrics many listeners can relate too, driven by a backbeat heavy groove and blitering lead guitar. Travers is in top form throughout the CD, whose hightlights include the classic sounding "Look Me Up", "Party Tonight" and "Steppin' Out" (which features a guitar solo by Shrapnel head honcho Mike Varney).

Pat Travers - PT=MC2

картинка, оставленная пользователем

Track Listing
1. Elijah
2. Won't Play That Game
3. Something's Gotta Give
4. Take Me to the Pilot
5. Can We Forget
6. Can't Escape the Fire
7. In the End
8. I Don't Care
9. Wiser Man
10. Pt Nuts/Linos & Lucy
11. Lafe's a Funny Old Dog
12. My Peach Pie

2005's PT=MC2 is Pat Travers' first album of all-new original studio material since 1996's Lookin' Up. Not that he's been inactive in the near-decade between the two records: he's been playing music and has released a couple of live albums in between. But this not only is his first full-fledged studio record in a while, it's a reinvigorating return to form, a pile-driving collection of hard rock. Sonically, it sounds of a piece with the arena-ready hard rock he was recording in the early '80s -- it's possible to hear this fitting into the album-oriented rock radio of the '80s -- but that doesn't mean that this is living in the past. Travers looks life as a rock survivor dead-on, writing songs that reflect his status as a middle-aged rocker while not forgetting to cut loose and have fun. But what makes PT=MC2 work is that Travers and his supporting rhythm section of bassist Rick Navarro and drummer Eric Frates don't sound middle-aged: they rock with the strength of men half their age. They do sound like seasoned musicians, which gives this album both weight and a fluid musicality, and Travers' voice has some appealing grit to it, which also helps give this music a nice, lived-in feel. All told, this is an impressive comeback: not only is Travers playing some fiery guitar here, but he has a strong set of songs and the band hits hard. It's hard to imagine anybody who has loved Travers' music at some point during his career not finding something to like on this first-rate effort.

Гитарист «тяжелого блюза» или «the hard blues driven rock», как он сам называет собственную музыку.
ПТ родился в 1954 в Торонто. Начал осваивать гитару в 12 лет под впечатлением от выступления Джимми Хендрикса и музыкантов бритрока.
Первую профессиональную работу лид-гитариста получил в группе «звезды» рокабилли Ронни Хокинса.
Когда ему было 20 Пэт уехал в Англию. В Лондоне он быстро встал на ноги, создал группу и даже подписал контракт на выпуск пластинок с фирмой Polydor.
Дебютный диск вышел в 1976.
Однако крупной звездой Трэверсу стать не удалось. Он записал альбомы «Makin' Magic» и «Putting It Straight» и вернулся в Америку: его блюз-рок шёл вразрез с тогдашней модой на панк.
В конце десятилетия Треверс записывает несколько отдалившиеся от формулы «чистого блюз-рока» альбомы, считающиеся едва ли не лучшими в его карьере, особенно концертный «Go For What You Know» (1979). Журнал «Guitar Player» помещает Пэта на обложку январского номера 1980, называя «новым гитарным героем», «одним из самых скоростных гитаристов».
В пластинке «Radio Active» (1981) с группой нового состава Треверс рискнул вернуться в блюз-року. Последовали совместные гастроли с группой Rainbow.
С середины 80-х гитарист из-за неурегулированности юридических вопросов с фирмой Полидор Трэверс потерял возможность выпускать пластинки, хотя концертная активность его осталась на прежнем уровне.
В 1990 году он, после долгого перерыва, вернулся в студию и в сопровождении своих прежних коллег по группе образца первой половины 80-х записал «School of Hard Knocks». В этот же год появляется его второй концертный диск «Boom Boom, Live at the Diamond Club».
Начало 90-х стало своеобразным ренессансом музыканта, переиздаются его старые записи, выходят нереализованные 10 и более лет назад архивы.
Расцвет карьеры Треверса связан в этот период с подписанием контракта с международной фирмой звукозаписи, специализирующейся на гитарной музыке — Blues Bureau International.
Начиная с диска «Blues Tracks» (1993) она выпускает до 2000 высоко популярные в России блюз-роковые «Just a Touch», «Blues Magnet», «Halfway To Somewhere», «Lookin' Up», «Best Of Blues + Live», «Blues Tracks 2», «Don't Feed The Alligators». Ряд номеров ПT написал в соавторстве с женой Моникой.
В 2001 Треверс ограниченным тиражом выпустил на собственные деньги диск «Pat Travers Solo»с акустическими сольными номерами, наигранными в Nils Lofgren's Guitar Bar в Неваде.
Альбом 2003 года «P.T. Power Trio» не имеет титульного названия. Он обозначает стилистику выдающихся рок-трио, тяжелых ансамблей минимального состава 60-70-х. Таких, как ZZ Top, Grand Funk, Mountain, Cream. Кавер-версии упомянутых ансамблей и собраны на компакт-диске.
