Summary

Canadian music icon, Jeff Healey, was born in Toronto on March 25, 1966. Blind from early childhood due to a rare form of eye cancer, Jeff Healey’s guitar playing virtuosity and soulful voice saw him rise to prominence in the entertainment world in the late 1980’s and ‘90’s selling millions of albums worldwide.

Getting his first guitar at the age of three, he developed a unique style of playing, placing the guitar flat on his lap and playing it like a lap steel, putting his hands over the fret board, giving him the flexibility of fretting with all five fingers and the power of pulling notes with the strength of his whole hand.

For over two decades, Jeff went on to enjoy both a successful rock/blues career and a wonderful jazz career as well. Jeff Healey passed away on March 2nd, 2008 from cancer. He was 41 years old.

Jeff’s life was not just about music but rather, music was part of what brought life to Jeff. It was part of who he was.

Three previously unreleased concerts on 3 CD plus background information in the booklet give fans an insightful look into the evolution of Jeff Healey... a document of an outstanding guitarist in three distinct phases of his career. The concerts are presented as they were performed, live without the aid of studio intervention. Spanning eleven and a half years, they cover different periods in the history of the Jeff Healey Band, and yet, they are all linked by a common thread, Germany.

1989 - A baby faced Jeff had just turned 23 and all he’d worked for since childhood was coming to fruition. As the band tore through Europe, the German audiences embraced them as their own. The 1989 Ohne Filter Extra show has had the original trio in exhilarating form, hamming it up on stage and pushing the sound of the three-piece to the extreme.

1995 - The addition of guitarist Pat Rush to the live line-up brought much to the proceedings. Pat’s experience and skill opened up Jeff to play more freely and not have to worry about carrying the song. In many ways, Pat was the perfect counterpoint for Jeff on stage and certainly, exactly what the band needed at this point in time. The concert ended with an extraordinary fifteen and a half minute version of See The Light.

2000: For this tour, new blood was once again injected into the band, this time in the form of Philip Sayce, a brilliant young lead player in his own right, with a great voice to boot.

Sadly, this tour would mark the beginning of the end for the Jeff Healey Band. It would also be one of the last times the three core members, Joe Rockman, Tom Stephen and Jeff Healey would tour together as a unit.
