This special double edition of the critically acclaimed “Heal My Soul” features the album packaged with its companion album, “Holding On”, for the first time. “Heal My Soul” is composed of 12 songs recorded during a 3 year period (1996-98) of intense creativity. “Holding On” features five more studio tracks from this time period, along with a live performance from Rockefeller Music Hall.

Known for his unconventional way of playing guitar in a lap-steel fashion, fretting with all five fingers, Jeff Healey (who was blind since childhood due to a rare form of eye cancer) solidified a legacy as a musician’s musician. His style of blues-rock earned the Canadian artist fans worldwide, before his untimely passing in 2008. This deluxe edition of Heal My Soul is a collection of material from one of Healey’s most creative periods, for both veteran and new fans.

Releasing a posthumous album sometimes seems like money-grabbing. But this is not the case with Heal My Soul, released in 2016, eight years after Jeff Healey died of cancer, aged 41. The musical gem from the blind Canadian blues singer and guitarist has now resurfaced in a Deluxe edition remastered in Hi-Res 24bit. The album features tracks that he recorded between 1996 and 1998 alongside his trusty sidekicks (bassist Joe Rockman and drummers Tom Stephen and Dean Glover). It showcases Healey’s wide range of genres, as he was just as at-ease with mid-tempo ballads as he was with blues or classic rock. His ever-present guitar is connected to booster amps and produces a tremendous, powerful sound here as his fingers glide over the guitar neck. This is an album that shows off the extent of his range, from Please with its Hendrix-like wah-wah and Daze of the Night Temptationwhich border on hard rock to Baby Blues and its undertones of folk and the ballad Kiss The Ground You Walk On. There’s no doubt about it, this outstanding guitar hero who worked alongside B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, George Harrison, Mark Knopfler and Jimmy Rogers could do just about everything, although his favourite ensemble was the power trio of guitar, bass and drums. For the first time, Heal My Soul has been coupled with Holding On, featuring five previously unreleased tracks that make this treat for the ears even more impressive. – Clotilde Maréchal
