Jeff Healey Band: See the Light (1988)
I was lucky enough to see Jeff Healey in concert three times. On two occasions, the concerts were in a large venue, but the last time I saw him was at Grossman's Tavern at 379 Spadina Ave. in Toronto. Jeff was just a few feet away from me. It was an intimate and interesting evening and there was no cover charge. Sadly, Jeff is another musician who died way too soon at age 41.
Many people will know Angel Eyes, a cover song, and See the Light, which might have one of the best opening riffs in the history of rock music. Confidence Man is also a great tune. I'll include a live clip (with Dr, John), because it is really interesting to see hm play the guitar. Make sure you watch the solo midway through the track.
And another live track:
