'Holding On: A Heal My Soul Companion' van Jeff Healey is in twee delen gesplitst. Eerst horen we nog vijf nieuwe nummers van dezelfde sessie’s als die op 'Heal My Soul' zijn gebruikt. Daarna horen we tien nummers van Healey’s concert op 6 Juli 1999 in Oslo. Wederom worden mijn verwachtingen waargemaakt met deze Jeff Healey release. Dit is wederom een echte must-have voor elke Healey fan.

Since his untimely passing in March of 2008, Jeff's Estate has worked diligently to ensure that his memory and incredible legacy would continue to shine on.

Recensie: Jeff Healey – Heal My Soul

24 maart 2016|Categories: Recensies|Tags: |

De verwachtingen zijn hoog als ik de cd 'Heal My Soul' van Jeff Healey binnenkrijg. Dit is geen album uitgebracht om alleen maar geld te verdienen maar voegt daadwerkelijk iets toe aan de catalogus van Jeff Healey. Dit is absoluut geen album die je na een paar keer luisteren zat bent, hier blijf je naar luisteren. Ik krijg een erg dubbel gevoel tijdens het luisteren van dit album. Aan de ene kant ben ik erg blij met dit geweldige album en aan de andere kant besef ik ook dat dit echt de laatste zal zijn van Healey. Zoals Jeff het zelf zingt op dit album: “It’s hard facing the truth.”. Zeg alle afspraken voor dit weekend af en ga dit album luisteren. Dit is wat mij betreft het beste album van dit jaar.

CD/DVD recensie: Jeff Healey – Songs From The Road

2 oktober 2009|Categories: Recensies|Tags: |

Het album kenmerkt zich door lekkere live opnames waaronder ook een aantal krakers van covers. Hoewel allerminst verrassend, toch een prima verzamelaar waar het uit volle borst meezingende publiek tijdens “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” het meest aanspreekt. De DVD beelden komen van een bluesfestival in Noorwegen en dateert uit 2006. Beeld en geluidskwaliteit zijn prima in orde. Uitschieter is een prima uitvoering van ‘Like A Hurricane’ en een staande Jeff Healey die uit zijn dak gaat tijdens ‘Highway To Hell’ ...
