Thanks a lot for this. I can remember buying the "See the Light" album in the late 80s. And I was lucky enough to see Jeff play in Canada in 1996.

A Great talent.

I remember and am still haunted by memory of his playing his version of All Along the Watchtower, from before he had an album deal. Wondering if this one might fill that? Been searching since then.

It would be really appreciated if this one could be put up again.

Thanks for everything.

Another great one was lost to us with Jeff's untimely death. I was lucky to see him on his first tour of the UK, the gig in fact which was recorded for the live vhs/dvd. There were major feedback issues during his stunning version of Bob's 'When the night comes falling..' so on the film the studio version is substituted, it was still an epic gig, grab a copy and watch if you can. Great musicaian, amazing performer too, soloing all over the stage and finding his own way back to his seat despite his blindness!!
