Pat Travers "Boom Boom" (Out Goes The Lights)

One of the "Road House" style rowdy rhythm and blues tunes is Boom Boom (Out Goes The Lights) by Little Walter who wrote, covered, and performed the original during the Chess Record years. Please refer to the earlier short biography that I posted earlier this month.

In 1978, Pat Travers recorded and released a live album entitled, “Go For What You Know,” which included his version of, "Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights)". This live performance took this song to a whole new level and reintroduced Little Walter’s song to a whole new generation of Blues Music Fans.

I think that you will enjoy the raw energy that Pat Travers brings to this old blues classic.
