On Get Me Some, Canuck guitarist-singer Jeff Healey returns to the meat-and-potatoes blues-rock blueprint that made him a star in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and this time, Patrick Swayze is not involved.
Predictably, Healey’s guitar playing sizzles over these 13 tracks–sometimes too much, but blues guitar aficionados will no doubt be thrilled with Healey’s fretboard gymnastics.
Lyrically, Healey stays the love-ballad course for the most part, challenging Hallmark’s finest with songs like “I Tried,” “Runaway Heart,” and “Macon Georgia Blue.” A swampy rocker called “House Is Burning Down” serves as the disc’s most compelling selection. –Chuck Molgat
