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.

Loud and Proud those are 3 words to describe Pat Travers...He comes at you hard and doesn't stop. Listening to him is kind of like trying to catch a transcontinental train by standing in the middle of the Tracks far from any station. He will run you right over, let me just say this is NOT music for breakfast however should you want to kick start a flagging party this is precisely the piece to do the job, he will have you hustling in no time. When Pat says "Go for What you KNOW" he means it...He went for the Hard Rock which he obviously knew very well and proved it within a few bars of the first song. I stuck to only giving this only a 3 count because while this kind of music is fantastic for the proper setting it simply isn't great all the time...I know some kids of approx. 18 will disagree thinking that life is a constant party however, when I was 18 that is how I thought however as I grew up somewhat I found that life simply was not that way...Sorry all you 18 year olds I hated bursting your bubble however. Maybe there should be a sign on this Disc stating FOR P.M PLAY ONLY...or something of the like...Otherwise this is a great Disc with songs on it like GO ALL NIGHT, GETTIN BETTA, BOOM BOOM ( OUT GO THE LIGHTS ), and a bunch of other tracks.

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.

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.
