Here is yet another recording of Canadian blues-metal guitarist Pat Travers playing his huge classic rock hit "Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)" in front of a live audience -- how he can still make it sound so invigorating after all these decades is beyond reason. The upside of this for Travers fans, however, comes not from the tunes the man has made his own by interpretation, but from a large number of covers -- with his own inimitable spin -- not recorded before. Here Travers and band treat listeners to readings of ZZ Top's "Waitin' for the Bus" and "Jesus Left for Chicago," UFO's "Lights Out," Aerosmith's "Last Child," and Cream's "Politician," to name a few.
