5.0 out of 5 stars Pat Travers “Making Magic”,
What a revelation “Making Magic” was!! No one could have expected the wonderful music that was to come from this visionary Canadian guitarist. “Making Magic” just jumped off the vinyl through the speakers into my head like some sort of sonic train that I could ride on the rest of my life! The album starts off with the funky intense namesake song filled with snaking snarling leads & intricate time changes that were to become a Pat Travers signature. Next came “Rock’N’Roll Susie” & “You Don’t Love Me,” showing PTs roots in the blues, but faster & more high energy than most artist have ever dreamed of at that time or since. “Stevie” is a moving song dedicated to PTs little brother that shows what a sense of beautiful melody PT has & how he could sonicly build a song structure to epic proportion. “Statesoro Blues,” retools the old blues tune in everyway made famous by The Allman Brothers. “Need Love” & Hooked on Music” are the real crown jewels of this album for me. Killer, killer, fast funky rock that would inspire later bands like Extreme. “Need Love” starts with funk that is just pure groove & seamlessly runs into the fast & furious metal tinged funk of “Hooked on Music”! The all instrumental ending tune “What You Mean to Me” is another prime example of Pats melodic sense, & serves as a taste of even better songs to come on the next album, “Putting it Straight.”
5.0 out of 5 stars Just in time,
If you like hard rock guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Tony Iommi and Ritchie Blackmore, Pat Travers is written in the books with these rock guitar gods.
5.0 out of 5 stars guitar hero,
this guy can play a guitar, if you like your blues with a slice of rock then pat is your man. if you can get the pat Travers album , then that is well worth it to.

Pat Travers – Makin’ Magic (1977)

Patrick Henry Travers (born April 12, 1954) is a Canadian rock guitarist, keyboardist and singer who began his recording career in the mid-1970s.

Pat Travers was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Soon after picking up the guitar at age 12, he saw Jimi Hendrix perform in Ottawa. Travers began playing in bands early in his teens; his first bands were the Music Machine (not to be confused with the Californian psychedelic/garage band of the same name), Red Hot, and Merge, which played in clubs in the Quebec area.

While performing with Merge, he was noticed by rock artist Ronnie Hawkins, who invited Travers to perform with him. In his early twenties Travers moved to London and signed a recording contract with the Polydor label. His self-titled debut album was released in 1976, and featured bassist Peter “Mars” Cowling, who would become a mainstay in Travers’ band for several years. An appearance on the German TV show Rockpalast in November 1976 was later released on DVD under the title Hooked on Music. This performance showcases an early version of Travers’ band featuring Cowling and drummer Nicko McBrain.
