Pat Travers - Can Do

Label : Frontiers Records | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: Full-length CD

Sjak : The last couple of years the Canadian guitar player Pat Travers had explored more the bluesrock side of the musical spectrum, but with this 'Can Do' album he somewhat returns to his hard rock roots of the old days. Which rocker doesn't have fond memories of the great albums 'Makin' Magic', 'Heat In The Street' and the fantastic live registration 'Go For What You Know'? 'Can Do' certainly isn't at the same level of the just mentioned albums, but makes a big step into the right direction. The opening and title track is Travers all the way, while 'Long Gone' is just a fine rocker with the necessary blues influences. Furthermore I especially like 'Wanted' and 'Dust & Bone' a bit more than the other songs, which besides blues influences also show certain southern rock aspects. The only real mishit on 'Can Do' is for me the Eurythmics-cover 'Here Comes The Rain', which at least got quite a Pat Travers treatment, but despite of that can't convince me for a single second. I'm afraid that Pat will never reach the level of 'Makin' Magic' anymore, but as long as he's capable of creating albums like this 'Can Do' he can count on my support.
