Jeff Healey is on the growing list of talented musicians who left God’s green earth, long before his time. His legacy left behind some incredible music for us to enjoy. In the case of the recently released Live at Grossmans, this may be as close to musical perfection as one can get! If you are a fan of killer bluesy guitar playing, you will not want to miss this CD.
The sonic quality of Live at Grossmans may the best I have ever heard on a live CD. I am not kidding!! Put this CD in your stereo and let this CD take you back to 1994, when Mr. Healey and band put on one amazing performance. The audio quality of this CD is so good, you will feel like you are there. After hearing this music, I wish I could have been. Jeff Healey’s performance is stunning, and his band is damn good as well. One might complain that the material on this CD isn’t his, but it is so well performed I could care less. Mr. Healey and company cover Albert King, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson and more. You will be hard pressed to find another CD with blues rock performed as well as the songs here. The fact that Jeff Healey can play like this, without the gift of sight is truly astonishing.
I am a sucker for the blues, but I unfortunately never had the chance to see Jeff Healey perform live. I am grateful that Jeff Healey left behind such an amazing live recording for all to hear. This CD is worth every penny you spend on it, and is highly recommended for all fans of rockin’ blues music.
