Based on the title alone, it's easy enough to think that Have Guitar, Will Travel is nothing but raging six-strings, but this record is wild in a whole different way: it's the sound of Joe Perry cutting loose in his home studio, trying anything that comes into his mind. Perry pulled this together in the summer of 2009 after his Aerosmith obligations fell apart, and Have Guitar reflects its quick creation, filled with loose ends and tossed-off rockers, and standing in direct contrast to Perry's overly mannered, highly polished 2005 album. This is under-produced, almost defiantly so, sometimes still bearing the echoes of the click tracks, other times sounding greasy and raw, but that raggedness is considerably charming, as it gives this a warmth that latter-day Aerosmith albums have often lacked. It's good to hear Perry tear it up again -- with any luck, he can bring some of this energy to the next 'Smith project, and if not, he can always head into his studio and cut another raver like this. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Have Guitar Will Buy

Have Guitar Will Travel, the name alone lets us know that this living legend is in it for the long haul. Pure an simple, this is straight rock and roll. Perry switches off vocal duties with Hagan, who is a german singer that Perry found online. The title track "We've Got A Long Way To Go" is a mix of old and new rock. It is definitely the single of the record. Then kicks right into "slingshot" giving up a fuzzy-riff of blues and rock. Joe's riffs are the same aerosmith sound we have grown to love. The difference is Joe is free to do what he wants without an constrains. The song "Wooden Ships" is an instrumental piece that shows fine musicianship and does not come across as show off song. A key song on the record is "Heaven and H*ll". We all know that Perry is known for being an epic songwriter but this is where is shines. It has haunting guitar licks and deep lyrics that appear all over the album (also on "Oh Lord (21 Grams)" a acoustic pipe organ piece) to help kick the devil out. The album closes with familiar early aerosmith sounding tracks. "Freedom" and "Scare the Cat" is for old and new fans to listen and rock. "Have Guitar Will Travel" is a stellar release from Joe and we hope to hear more from him soon.

When I first heard "We've Got A Long Way To Go" at JoePerry.com I immediately went out and bought the new album, 'Have Guitar, Will Travel'. This CD was built by Joe Perry, and it sounds like it! The classic-rock influence he brings to Aerosmith records is littered throughout this album in tracks like "Scare The Cat," and "Heaven and Hel*". With the addition of Hagen, Perry's project has captured his classic sound, and intertwined with a vocalist who brings in the "new-classic-rock" sound appearing today. I commend Joe Perry for maintaining his unique sound, while not failing to stay on the cutting edge of his genre.
