Arista celebrated its 30th anniversary by releasing The Heritage Series, spotlighting the most popular artists on the label. The Jeff Healey installment in The Heritage Series is pretty much a straight hits collection, featuring highlights from his stint at the label. While he was at Arista, he achieved the peak of his popularity with such radio hits as "Confidence Man," "Angel Eyes," "See the Light," "I Think I Love You Too Much" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." All those songs are here, along with some highlights from his albums, providing a nice retrospective of his time with Arista. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Capturing a homecoming gig for the conquering hero, Live at Grossman's 1994 finds blues-rocker Jeff Healey returning to a favorite club. Looking back, it’s easy to see that Healey was between stages: his most popular albums were just behind him and the years of him carving out a niche as a working bluesman who dabbled in jazz were ahead of him. Here, he was performing with the velocity and volume of a blues-rocker at his peak, invigorated by an intimate setting where he could just play, not worrying about throwing in “Angel Eyes” or “I Think I Love You Too Much.” The result is a set where he salutes his idols -- Clapton, Elmore James, Albert King, Howlin’ Wolf, Hendrix, even the Beatles via an excellent “Yer Blues” -- and it’s one of his purest and best records as a straight-ahead blues-rocker. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

One likes the covers concept espoused by blues-rockers The Jeff Healey Band in a kind of backhanded way: as much as one admires the chops displayed by Toronto's blind guitarist whiz-kid, the group's songwriting is somewhat lyric-challenged. Cover to Cover works to circumvent the combo's main limitations. The disc kicks off in grand style with a dramatic, original instrumental reading of The Yardbird's "Shapes of Things." A pair of Hendrix numbers ("Freedom," "Angel") chalks up to unfortunate typecasting for Healey. Some inclusions (try the Stealer's Wheel chestnut "Stuck in the Middle with You") are bland vanilla throwaways. Still others, namely Spirit's "I Got a Line on You," sends one running back to the original versions. Mind you, if any of these point new listeners in the direction of the original, then a valuable public service has been performed. © Roch Parisien /TiVo

Pop/Rock - Released January 1, 1990 | Arista - BMG Heritage

Canada's Jeff Healey enjoyed success in the early '90s with a pair of flame-throwing covers of John Hiatt songs, "Angel Eyes" and"Confidence Man," both of which are included on this collection of tracks drawn from his four Arista albums. The blind guitarist's unorthodox laptop playing style, coupled with a solid rhythm section of Tom Stephen on drums and Joe Rockman on bass, gave the songs a bluesy, hard-rocking, and slightly edgy feel, a template the trio never abandoned, and which gives this compilation a comfortable feeling of cohesion. A cover of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" works well here, as does a gospel-tinged take on Jimi Hendrix's "Angel." But the most affecting track may well be the album's closer, a loose-limbed, barroom romp through Big Joe Williams' "Highway 49," which just plain rocks, pure and simple. © Steve Leggett /TiVo

Third time up for sightless guitar wunderkid Jeff Healey and gang; Feel This offers the power trio's meatiest and most satisfying outing. JHB's brand of roadhouse rock can be somewhat bland on disc; here the group captures much more of its trademark live intensity than in the past. The unobtrusive addition of keyboards adds a more expansive dimension to several tracks. Boogie fans will want to check out the ZZ Top-like "Cruel Little Number"; blues-rockers will come away satisfied with the likes of "House That Love Built." Hip-hop connoisseurs, on the other hand, will likely want to avoid JHB's rap spoof on "If You Can't Feel Anything Else." © Roch Parisien /TiVo

Before an untimely passing in 2008, Canadian vocalist/guitarist Jeff Healey toured ceaselessly, eventually growing in prominence to be one of the more world-renowned blues guitarists of his time. Blind and with a unique playing style, Healey's approach to the blues was all his own. As the Years Go Passing By collects three previously unreleased German concerts, recorded in 1989, 1995, and 2000. Over the course of the collection's 31 tracks, a rare look into the guitarist's evolving style is laid out, especially on different versions of spirited tracks like "My Little Girl" or "Roadhouse Blues." © Fred Thomas /TiVo
