Welcome dear peeps!
It’s been a hell of a year so far and we wanted to take a moment to thank you all for helping us celebrate Jeff Healey’s life and legacy in this, what would have been his 50th birthday year! We can’t do any of this without you, so in all sincerity, thank you.
So, let’s get down to it shall we? Hot off the presses… I recently had the wonderful good fortune of sitting down with our friend Danko Jones for an episode of his long running podcast. We had a great time talking about Jeff, the 50th Celebration, Heal My Soul, Philip Sayce and whatever else struck our fancy!
You can check it out for free here on iTunes or on Soundcloud
(warning, the show is NSFW-ish – a few ‘f-bombs’ get dropped over the course of the hour, so don’t be surprised!)
New episode with Roger Costa is now up on Soundcloud and iTunes. Roger is the archivist/co-administrator of the Jeff Healey Estate. We talk about Jeff a lot on this one. Listen, download and subscribe for free. Please leave a rating/review on iTunes ‘cause it really does help the podcast profile. @jeffhealeyofficial
Next up, we are incredibly proud to announce that this coming Sunday, September 11th, Jeff is being inducted into the Mississauga Music Walk of Fame! The Walk of Fame Ceremony takes place each year during the Southside Shuffle Blues and Jazz Festival. This year, it will be at Port Credit Memorial Park, where the Southside Shuffle organizers have arranged a stage for the induction ceremony at 4PM. Jeff will be joining such music legends as Ronnie Hawkins, Oscar Petersen, Denny Doherty (of the Mamas & the Papas) and more!
It’s going to be a great afternoon and Jeff will be inducted by a very special friend of ours… Hopefully we’ll get to see some of you local cats there!
That’s all for today folks! We’ll see you all back here real soon! Be safe my friends!
What Jeff Healey music is included? Any chance the full version of White Room from the movie is on this new release?
Hi Dave! This is a blu-ray remaster and re-release of the movie. There is no additional audio content, sorry. ~Rog
Will the song Jeff covered “On The Road Again” ever be available to buy?
Hi Ryan! Please see the other comments here. We’ll keep you posted! ~Rog
You won’t ever get it released as it was an on stage performance so to get it as a track is 2/10 chance
Hi Daniel. No, it was recorded properly for the film, but it has been tangled in legal knots for some time. We’re working on it though! Never say never! 🙂 ~Rog
Hello, Big JH fan, having bought a lot of Jeff’s music will the Heal My Soul bonus sessions 5 song ep be available as a CD or download. Will the song Jeff covered “On The Road Again” ever be available to buy. Finally will the first album “See The Light” ever get a reissue with bonus tracks, outakes an demos ?? Thanks for your time. Really love Heal my soul, would love more tracks from the vaults. Thanks, Mike
Hi Mike! We’ll have some news about the Bonus Sessions EP in the next couple of weeks. On The Road Again and the other songs in the RH movie but not the soundtrack have been on our radar for some time. We’re working on it. 🙂 Ditto See The Light. Glad you liked Heal My Soul! It was truly a labour of love for us. ~Rog
Hi there Rog
By any chance is there any progress on getting the rights and realising of the song “on the road again”? It’s been on my number one list for years. I don’t actually get why the record company isn’t signing over the rights so this song can get released and enjoyed by millions of fans. It puzzles me!. Fingers crossed for a release date soon!.
Still nothing to report I’m afraid. We will shout it loud and clear as soon as we have more news for you… Thanks for all your support! ~Rog
Any news about “On the road again”? I have to keep replaying the movie just to hear a little bit of it! Would be awesome is it could be released somehow.
Nothing to report yet Sean. When there’s anything to share, rest assured we’ll shout it here loud and proud! ~Rog
good night , i would be mad if you know if the song ‘ on the road again ‘ can be heard on any platform or even somewhere . I’m a big fan of Jeff and I find it incredible what happens with that song and other RH songs. thanks and regards
Please see the other comments here and stay tuned! 🙂 ~Rog
So delighted to hear Jeff is being inducted into the music hall..100% about time. Thanks for all the updates & I do believe I’ve viewed Roadhouse at least 25 times…can’t get enough, wonderful movie…I SALUTE YOU Jeff..miss ya sunshine !!!
great to see! well deserved
A great addition to the movie! Thanks! I wish Jeff could have been in more movies specially with Patrick but then again what would you have called it. Awesome music and great scene when Terry Funk gets his butt kicked! To all Healey fans live long and prosper! shines his lighter! 🙂
Saw Jeff at one of his last performances (Deming Loggers show in Washington), fantastic! I for one will miss his music!
Just saw the movie and there are a lot of tracks not on the soundtrack album:
“On the Road Again”, “Confidence Man” (“See The Light” album version is different), “Long Tall Sally”, “Travelin’ Band”, “One Foot on the Gravel”, “Hear That Guitar Ring”, “Knock on Wood”, “Roadhouse Blues” (movie version has no piano and no wrong note when jeff start singing), “White Room”.
There will be an expanded edition containing all these cuts? I think It would be fantastic, since these are, IMO, the best versions I’ve ever heard…
It is a question we get asked *a lot*. All I can say is, ‘someday’. It’s always on our radar and something we are working on, but there are some legal knots that still need to be untied.
Thanks for Your answer. I really hope that all legal issues will be solved soon… That will be a very very special release for me, and for many people.
Can we please get the cover of “on the road again” I have wanted this for so many years i swear I would pay good money just to get it.
Unfortunately Michael, it is not in our control. We are doing what we can though and if we are ever able to make it happen, rest assured there will be much fanfare!
Be safe and healthy!
Hey guys, I know you get asked the question all the time but I hope progress is being made on releasing on the road again and other songs covered in the movie. Also do you think White Room would be released when the time comes? Thanks!
Still picking away at the legal knots… But yes, if and when we can make this happen, the idea would be to have *all* of Jeff’s music from the film on one release.
Never worry about bugging us! Everything we do is for and because of fans like yourself.
Hope you are staying safe and healthy!
Hi Rog !
How is it going with the legal issues concerning JHB music from Road House ?
I really hope all problems will be solved as soon as possible and the album
Hey guys, just checking in to see if there was any update on the roadhouse official soundtrack being released. Hope all is well
Hey Brock! No comment… 🙂 ~Rog
Idk if that is a good thing or a bad thing
Yes. 🙂 ~Rog
Still no word on on the road again studio version I assume? Have been wanting it since I was about 6 years old lol.
Any news about the unreleased songs from the sountrack ?
