Editorial Reviews

Pat Travers' second album release by the man in the year 1977 - picks up perfectly from where Makin' Magic left off. Having found the hard rockin' formula that worked, Pat continued to gig hard with his trusty three piece, `Mars' Cowling and Nicko Mcbrain making up the numbers admirably. Guests on the album include Thin Lizzy's Scott Gorham on `Speakeasy' and Rainbow's Tony Carey on the instrumental `Off Beat Ride'. `Speakeasy' and `Life In London', affectionate odes to his new home, show an international side to Pat Travers and his work. Next came America. Re-mastered especially for this CD release and containing original art work and new sleeve notes

27 years, have I've been spinning this album. I've went through three vinyl copies & have a Japanese import CD, now I also have a double album CD which "Heat in the Street" is also included. It maybe redundant at this point to say that "Putting it Straight" is not just my favorite PT album, but my favorite album of all time! It still sounds as everybit fresh today as the day I popped it on my record player, so many years ago.
"Putting it Straight" starts off with the speeding mammoth, shiny metallic freight train that is "Life in London." PT's last word on the punk scene that was consuming London at the time. Fast, hard, & metallic, "Life in London" is a juggernaut stomping on the lifeless corpse that punk would be in a couple of years. The second & third songs, "It Aint What it Seems" & "Speakeasy," are rollicking guitar riff driven tunes that speak of goodtimes & bad. "Running from the Future" (my favorite song off the album) is a monster of Jazzy metal heaviness with guitar breaks that bring tears to my eyes. The sound he gets out of his guitar is just incredible on this song & the album as a whole, truely unique. "Running from the Future's" subject is also as forboding as it is heavy. PT speaking of his drug use, knowing it will lead to nowhere. "Lovin' You" is a keyboard driven song of love & regret. The funky instrumental "Off Beat Ride" demonstrates PT's fusion side not unlike Jeff Beck's "Wired," it also shows PT's considerable keyboard talents. The giant funky metallic riffery & time changes of "Gettin' Betta" is a immortal PT classic.

So here's the deal my friends. This and Makin Magic are IMHO Pat's best efforts ever. Unfortunatley after doing some research and downloading MP3's from both of these "remastered" CD's from Majestic, it sounds as if it was either recorded way too hot, or directly from an old LP. You can hear pops, crackles and the likes on both of them. I returned this and was able to find the album on a double cd called "Puttin it Straight/Heat in the Street" from a company called "One Way" and the audio quality is night and day. Majestic did very poor jobs on both Makin Magic and Puttin it straight CD's. Darn shame as they are classic guitar rock albums from an artist who never got the recognition he deserved, Pat is just AWESOME! So do yourself a favor and if you can, get the 2 album CD version from "One Way" who actually mastered them from the studio tapes (but only had the rights for 2 years, so they can be tough to find), not from an LP or so it sounds from the pops and cracks. I only wish Makin Magic were available that way, but as of yet I have not been able to locate a quality remaster of that one. So the 2 star rating has everything to do with quality and nothing to do with the music. Puttin it Straight is a 5 star work of art all they way!!

I bought this album upon it's release in 1977. This is undoubtly his best effort. I saw Pat Travers in 1977 at Will Rogers auditorium in Fort Worth Texas. This is a small venue that holds about 4000 people and he blew the roof off this place. So glad to see it finally released on CD. This album is unlike Radio Active or Heat In The Street and has not aged one bit. It is more funked up with a touch of jazz to it. There is not one bad track on it. If you don't have this cd GET IT! You will not be sorry.

I agree with others here that this is probably Pat Traver's best effort. Just wanted to mention that on my copy of this disc the songs are in a completely different order than they are coded on the disc. The disc is coded in the order the songs appear on the cover, but this is not the actual song order on the disc. Be aware that if you rip this disc to your computer you will have to manually rename the files to..ahem..."Put them straight".

Actual song order on the disc = How the disc is coded:
01 Life in London = Life in London
02 It Ain't What It Seems = Gettin' Betta
03 Speakeasy = Runnin' from the Future
04 Runnin' from the Future = It Ain't what it Seems
05 Lovin' You = Off Beat Ride
06 Off Beat Ride = Lovin' You
07 Gettin' Betta = Dedication
08 Dedication = Speakeasy

Kind of sloppy execution, if you ask me. Oh well, still a great disc. Buy it!

Pat Travers "Putting It Straight" is one CD that needs to be in every
Guitarist and wanna be! collection. Pat's music is versatile and energy
driven! This CD kicks ASS! and you still can't play it loud enough, even at 34 years old.
BUY IT! you won't be disappointed!

This one of Pat's best albums.this album features the line-up of Pat Travers,Mars Cowling,Nico McBrain(Nico left after this album to join Iron Maiden).This disc features some of Pat's best work,stong guitar work,killer drumming and rocking tunes.The draw back to the cd is the remastering of the lp has the songs out if sequence.The Titles are right but the songs don't match.This is not a one time fluke,i have bought 2 different copies from 2 different places and they are both out of sequence.Dosn't effect the music though,this is a rocking cd.
