When we talk about Canadian guitarists, blues rocker Pat Travers should be up there somewhere toward the top of the list. Taking a bold step, Travers left Canada to kickstart his solo career in good ol' Blighty during 1976, this album his first footsteps onto a satisfying solo career.
From 1978 onward, things got a whole lot more interesting for Canadian guitarist Pat Travers. Having left his home-base of London, Travers moved to the USA and re-commenced his career out of Florida. He would bring onboard the pairing of Pat Thrall and Tommy Aldridge, who would become mainstays over the next three years.
After the success of 'Crash And Burn', the results for 'Radio Active' were very disappointing. So what of the 'Radio Active' material? Over the years, this set didn't quite do it for me, unlike the previous albums.
Pat is well overdue on his return to hard rock, and though not as polished as those earlier efforts, there's still a lot to admire in the man's attention to detail when combining hard rock with the blues.
