Pat Benatar has always shown that she has a GREAT voice. Over the course of her career she has sung both rockers and ballads with equal passion and greatness. Well, this foray into the blues just leaves me further impressed with the woman as a performer. She sings … on these blues classics.The closest thing to a hit on this album was “True Love”–which was also an awesome concert song when I saw her a few years ago. That, in fact, is what turned me on to this album. Note that this is an original song, as are two other tracks on this collection. But for sure, her covers of such fare as “Bloodshot Eyes”, “Payin’ The Cost To Be The Boss”, and “I’ve Got Papers On You” all rock the house. Even her cover of “Please Come Home For Christmas”, which closes the album, sounds real good here.Call my overall rating of this CD 4 3/4 stars, as it is just short of my favorite Pat material. Still, it is strongly recommended for anyone who loves Pat’s amazing voice, cares about more than “the biggest hits”, and likes to dip into the blues now and then. A very fun, enjoyable album.
