Jeff Healey– Mess of Blues (Ruf Records) London   

Live tracks recorded by Andrew

Sadly, Jeff Healey died shortly before the release of Mess Of Blues, his first blues-rock oriented recording in eight years. The rare form of cancer that robbed Healey of his eyesight at the age of one finally caught up with him and took his life. Mess Of Blues shows that the singer, guitarist, and bandleader was still having a lot of fun knocking out the blues, and the proof is in the grooves. The album’s blend of guitar-driven blues and roots-rock is exactly what fans requested, and provides a perfect coda for the talented Healey’s career. (Ruf Records)
