5.0 out of 5 stars Pat Travers Makes One Of The Great 70s Live Albums Sept. 12 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
GO FOR WHAT YOU KNOW is one of the best live albums of the 70s.
The energy level is so high, it's a wonder Travers and his band don't run out of gas halfway through the album. The rendition of "Heat In The Street" really pushes the pedals, but the whole album has the feel of a fitness fanatic on a tear. Bands like Guns 'N' Roses rock this hard only in their dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funk the Rock Out! June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
5 stars = Masterpiece
Pat Travers Band "Go for What You Know" (LIVE!) March 11, 2004
Take everything I stated about the last three albums ("Making Magic," "Putting it Straight," & "Heat in the Street") & turn it up a notch. The funk, the speed, the technical skill, the song writing! "Go for What You Know" is a live album to end all live albums. Here is a band that is so driven by their kinetic funk/metal energy that the sounds in this album threaten to overwhelm the listener. Riffs, leads, bass lines, drums exploding through the stratosphere anchored down to a funky killer groove! I'll not go into song by song as the other reviews, for all is a funky whole on this album. Even the classic blues of "Boom Boom (Out goes the Lights)" is a high energy masterpiece. No duds here! PT exited the 70's with an Icon & legacy that many bands in the late 80's would be inspired by. This man & his band are the link from Hendrix to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, King's X, Extreme, Living Colour, just to name a few. His work is essential for anyone wanting to understand where this type of music came from. A true master & original, Pat Travers.
5/5
I apologise for the double review.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STARS, nothing less. Feb. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow! The reviews are in and it's unanimous. 5 STARS, nothing less.
I just replaced my vinyl copies of Puttin' It Straight and Heat in the Street with the double cd containing both albums. (You can get them individually since they were just released and are available at amazon.uk.) I am now ready to replace this selection from my Pat Travers vinyl collection.
I am thrilled to read so much positive stuff in support of Pat Travers and his band. I turned my band mates onto Pat. I turned my friends that played in other bands onto Pat. It seemed to me that only the musicians on Long Island in the late 70's took to Pat Travers, and the rest of the world wasn't ready. Maybe it was for the best. I might have gotten tired of him if EVERYBODY was into him. I saw him on tour to support this album at the Calderone Theater in Hempstead, Long Island, NY. A movie theater with incredible acoustics that was converted into a concert hall. small hall, BIG sound. Amazing venue.
Hats off to Pat. He went out and got the best to help him deliver his goods. Tommy Aldridge's double-bass pedal work sounds like someone playing a quadruple-bass kit. And he wasn't just about speed. Look up "syncopation" in the dictionary. That's a picture of Tommy's feet next to the definition. Mars Cowling's bass lines were the coolest things on four strings. (Pat credits him with bass and inspiration on all his albums.) The rhythm section of that band was what kept it all together and gave it that incredibly tight sound. Pat Thrall was just the touch Travers needed to compliment him and his songs. Never took over Pat's show, he just showed up when he was needed to blow you away, and happily went back to rockin' alongside Pat. A tight cohesive unit without egos in this band. I challenge anybody to name a band that could rock this hard and tight, LIVE! Man, I miss this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars lean, taut, tight, and punchy rock 'n' ROLLLL June 25 2003
By ChefBum
Format:Audio CD
I finally got 'Live! Go for What You Know' by Pat Travers after years of only being vaguely familiar with him, most notably for the hit, 'Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)', which happens to be one of the tracks on this album.
The first thing that hit me about this band is how tight and focused they sound. They hit you like a big wall of energy. From track one to the end, they just don't stop. I just love the crunchy yet bright tone that both Pat Travers and Pat Thrall get out of their guitars. Whatever effects pedals they were using, I've got to get 'em!
Along with interesting embellishments, licks, and rhythmic changeups, the other thing that really struck me later after repeated listening is just how great of a sense of rhythm these guitarists have. Everything sounds so taut and punchy (ESPECIALLY for a live recording), you can just tell these guys were RIGHT ON and groovin' as a band. My favorite tracks are tracks #3 and #8, 'Go All Night' and 'Makes No Difference'. These guys don't just go out and slog through another number-- they attack these songs as if it were the last time they were ever going to play!
You can just FEEL the energy and the enthusiasm for the music on this record. It was an 80's classic, but it should be remembered as a great example of Pat Travers and his awesome band at their peak. It still compares very, very favorably to any live recorded performance out there, ever.
