Jeff Healey: I Can't Get My Hands On You
Jeff Healey - "I Can't Get My Hands On You" (Convexe Entertainment/Mascot Label Group): Back in March, a so-called ‘lost’ album from the vaults of late blues-rock guitarist Healey was released on what would have been his 50th birthday. Heal My Soul was well-received internationally, and a bookend of sorts is now being readied for release.
Holding On: A Heal My Soul Companion features five studio tracks that were recorded but previously unreleased during the same time frame as Heal My Soul (‘96-’98), and a concert recorded in Oslo in 1999.
Taken from that concert, this live version of "I Can't Get My Hands On You" is a timely reminder of the potency of the combination of Healey's fiery yet fluent guitar playing and convincingly passionate vocals.
The album will be available in Canada Dec. 2 as a download and on CD (rest of the world is Dec. 9), with a double vinyl version coming on Jan. 13.
