Jeff Healey - Feel This - LP -

Price per Unit (stuk): €11.95


From reading the other reviews here, it sounds like some of them were based on one song on this album: "If You Can't Feel Anything Else". While I understand their assessments of this song and even remotely agree with them, the song DOES NOT discount the album as an exemplary blues record with strong rock accents. The song can be described as somewhat experimental, combining rap with Jeff's soaring guitar solos. It initially sounded peculiar to me, but I eventually appreciated the song for what it is...I have even come to like it!
As for the rest of the album, it is truly a work of art from this blues guitarist. Largely unknown and unpromoted, the album demonstrates the sheer virtuosity of Jeff Healey and his band. Many of the songs are blues pieces with hard rock lingering through each one. Excellent examples of this are "Cruel Little Number", "House That Love Built", "Evil and Here To Stay", and "My Kind Of Lover".
My favorites here are "Leave The Light On", "Baby's Lookin' Hot", "Lost In Your Eyes", and "You're Coming Home". In the latter song, this ballad has Jeff making his guitar sing with delightful solos that literally give me chills. The song also has a very positive message; kind of ironic for a blues artist. "Leave The Light On" is a bluesish melodic rocker with more premium guitar work. "Baby's Lookin' Hot" REALLY rocks! It has heavy rhythm guitar and drums in addition to Jeff's incredible guitar solos and vocals; the song just screams with blues and rock accents. Lastly, "Lost In Your Eyes" comes across as a sensational ballad that Jeff probably tried to release as a single. Originally written by Tom Petty, this song has a beautiful melody perfect for relaxing with a loved one.
There is one discrepancy with this album: the production quality. It is obvious that this album was merely pasted from tape to CD material without adequate digital remastering. As a result, the treble input is a little excessive, while the bass input does not have enough power or emphasis. This is especially apparent with the heavy rockers. Despite this error, I still rate this album 5 stars and highly recommend its purchase for its unparalleled songwriting and pure musical talent provided by Jeff Healey and his band.
