PAT TRAVERS - Blues On Fire (2012)
Legendary guitarist Pat Travers, an influence on numerous musicians including Kirk Hammett of Metallica, proudly presents this electrifying new album of blues recordings featuring songs that date back to the 1920s! Features full on classic rock production and heavy guitar versions of Blind Blake s Black Dog Blues, Blind Willie Johnson s Nobody s Fault But Mine, Son House s Death Letter plus more blues classics originally made famous by Bessie Smith, Tampa Red, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and more!
Having come off an exhausting European tour, Travers sat back and took a little journey back to his roots; listening to the delta blues and knew the time was right to showcase these early twentieth century legendary artists, which include Blind Willie Johnson, Bessie Smith, Henry Thomas and Son House. He handpicked the twelve songs that appear on Blues on Fire. Travers’ hard hitting blues style can be heard with the first note of the album in Blind Blake’s Black Dog Blues. You feel the energy that Travers gives as he brings these songs to life, delivering his blend of rough vocals and emotional style that has many current metal guitar players including Metallica’s Kirk Hammet, listing Travers as one of their influences. Travers produced and performed all the vocals, guitar and bass lines for Blues on Fire, with Doug Bare on the piano/organ, Carl Cleaver on piano and Sean Shannon on the drums. The classic blues steel guitar sound can be heard perfectly on the tracks Nobody’s Fault But Mine and Back Water Blues. The delta blues sound is full of emotion and lyrical poetry that can be experienced through Bulldozer Blues and Dark Night Blues, two tracks that stand out as the highlights.
