Album Remarks & Appraisals:
"This hidden gem is a wonderful retrospect of what The Jeff Healey Trio as all about. a mix of traditional blues rock with modern and alternative impressions and a heavy dose of terrific songwriting skills. I wonder and wonder what could of been if Jeff was still around and since his passing in 2008 the rock world lost a truly great musician and songwriter. For fans here in the USA this is simply a must buy for any rock fan in general and for Healey fans everywhere is a sure bet already. Another gifted musician and guitar god taken way too young, let’s treasure the wonders he offered to us while down here and toast a big one for Jeff Healey and his band as his music will never bite the dust. Highly Recommended!!!!" -My Global Mind
"If you ever liked Healey there is nothing to keep you away from this release. It's a fitting way to remember a great talent that sadly died way too early." -SeattlePI

Over ten years into his recording career, singer/guitarist Jeff Healey continues to churn out rockin' blues -- especially on his 2000 release, Get Me Some. Not a lot has changed over the years -- Healey still specializes in a melodic form of blues-rock that would sound perfect on mainstream rock radio -- or in the follow-up to Roadhouse (if Patrick Swayze decided to revisit his ass-kicking Dalton character). The classic Jeff Healey sound/approach can be heard throughout -- especially on such up-tempo ditties as the album-opening "Which One" and "My Life Story," while also taking it down a notch on the Allman Brothers-esque "Macon Georgia Blue" and the guitar/vocal album-closer, "Rachel's Song." Get Me Some is exactly what you'd expect to hear from a new Healey studio album. ~ Greg Prato
