Daze Of The Night, a song taken from the late Jeff Healey’s ‘lost’ record Heal My Soul, has been made available to stream.
The album will be released on March 25 to mark what would have been Healey’s 50th birthday. The blind blues rock guitarist died in March, 2008, at the age 41 after a three-year battle with sarcoma cancer.
Jeff Healey Estate co-administrators Cristie Healey and Roger Costa previously said: “Heal My Soul is a project that we have wanted to tackle for years. A ‘lost’ album, it contains material recorded during one of the most creative periods in Jeff’s rock career.
“Until now, it has never seen the light of day. Jeff was very proud of this work and it features some of the most powerful and impassioned performances he ever committed to record. With complete creative control we’ve laboured hard, tracking down recordings, identifying the right performances, restoring them to their proper stature and mixing and mastering them from the ground up.
“This has been a true labour of love for us from beginning to end and we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to finally share this significant release with the world.”
Healey lost his sight during early childhood due to retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. Playing guitar since the age of three, he developed the distinctive lap-style guitar technique that propelled him to international fame.
