Canadian white blind blues guitarist Jeff Healey came to the limelight on See The Light (Arista, 1988) by quoting John Lee Hooker (Nice Problem to Have), Willie Dixon (Don't Let Your Chance Go By), Muddy Waters (Hideaway), B.B. King (Confidence Man), and especially Jimi Hendrix (Blue Jean Blues, See The Light). The album runs the gamut from the rocking Someday Someway to the solemn spiritual River Of No Return to the catchy country-rock of That's What They Say to the (gasp) mellow ballad Angel Eyes. The guitar technique was amazing, but the material was inferior.

Hell To Pay (Arista, 1990) cattura meglio il potere di Healey con le piu' grintose Full Circle e Something To Hold On To. Feel This (Arista, 1992) aumenta il volume ma non la caratura delle composizioni.

Later, Healey formed a jazz band and turned to dixieland jazz, e.g. on It's Tight Like That (2006), Among Friends (2007), Adventures in Jazzland (2007).
