By Andy Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Jun. 2008
Format: Audio CD
'Mess Of Blues' is an absolutely sensational collection of live, predominantly blues recordings from the sadly departed guitar virtuoso and his brilliant band. If you like blues guitar played with passion and feeling, coupled with a tight, jumping rhythm section then this album is for you. Jeff Healey, in the liner notes, describes his band as "the very best bar band that anyone could ask for" and he wasn't wrong - they're tremendous.

The choices of songs are interesting and varied and make for a rich, eclectic, engaging listen, including tracks such as The Band's 'The Weight', Neil Young's 'Like A Hurricane' and Hank Williams' 'Jambalaya', all performed brilliantly. Standards such as 'I'm Torn Down', 'Mess O' Blues' and 'Shake, Rattle And Roll' are executed as if they're being played for the very first time - no tired run-throughs here. The sound is exceptional and the performances absolutely scintillating, in fact it is difficult to believe that these are live recordings sometimes, they're so incredibly good.

It is an absolute tragedy that Jeff has been taken from us so early in his life, denying the world any more of these solid gold blues albums. This isn't just one of the best albums Jeff has released, this is one of the best modern blues albums ever. Animated, vital, stirring stuff - get yourself a copy and listen to a real legend having the time of his life and sharing it with the rest of the world.

This is a great blues album from him and what a way to end and go out on!
This is a must for any Jeff Healey fans out there!
As to all of us who have come to know his music and is way of playing the guitar, which there is no doubt that he will be always known as the most distinctive guitar player, since Jimi Hendrix.

He was a Light to us all in his music!
Thanks Jeff

I bought my copy of this CD in April 2008, not realising that the "guitar man" has only recently passed away at that date. Every time I listen to this Album I am in awe at just what a massive talent Healey was. I am here again to buy the abum for a good friend who is another blues fan. This is the music you can listen to agaian, and again, and still enjoy.

Yes this is a fitting album for the mans talent, and it's a good thing for us he work so hard on this to leave us with such a legacy.

If you like blues you will LOVE this CD. If you would like to learn about blues you will LOVE this CD. And if you want to hear fine guitar playing, with a band having a damn good time making music then you should buy this CD just for the hell of it.

If you listen to this album it will make you happy and sad at the same time. Happy to listen to such an amazing talent showing the flash and fire of his younger days tempered, added to in fact, by the experience of his years on the circuit. Sad that he will not achieve the complete greatness he was undoubtedly heading for. This is not just a blues album, although everything he did had the blues at its core. A great album.

I bought this after hearing some Jeff Healey on the radio and it reminded me I still had his first album, but hadn't heard anything for ages.I read some of the reviews of the other albums and decided to download this one. All I can say is it is excellent. A trip back in time to fresh raw sounding blues, played with enthusiasm. The cover versions are great and you can almost 'feel' the enjoyment singing them. This should have a place in anyones collection.

You are half way there to getting this cd, so dont think twice and click on to buy.. I'm with the other reviewers, great playing and good sound.. He always tried to give us a mix of music past and present, but i still say the blues was were he was at.. Hendrix, Stevie Ray, he has joined the list of guitar legends.... RIP Jeff...
