Information/Write-up

Jeff Healey's debut album See the Light may be similar to Stevie Ray Vaughan's high-octane blues-rock, but in blues and blues-rock, it's often the little things that count, such as guitar styles, and there's no denying that Healey has a distinctive style. Healey plays his Stratocaster flat on his lap, allowing him to perform unusual long stretches that give his otherwise fairly predictable music real heart and unpredictability. Throughout the album, his guitar work keeps things interesting, even on slow ballads like "Angel Eyes" (one of two John Hiatt songs, by the way, along with the ripping "Confidence Man"). That's what keeps See the Light interesting, and it's what makes it an intriguing, promising debut. Unfortunately, Healey has never quite fulfilled that promise, but it's still exciting to hear the first flowerings of his talent.
- Thom Owens, AllMusic

Selling a million copies, the album rocketed the Band into the spotlight and kicked off over a decade of intense touring and recording all over the world.

“The three years following the release of See The Light were a whirlwind… Almost non-stop touring, talk shows, press and radio interviews with a three-month break only to write and record a new album [Hell To Pay]. I was meeting and touring with ZZ Top, Little Feat, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt and many others.” ~ Jeff Healey
