Adrie:

Wat een geweldige combinatie, de blues van John Lee Hooker en het gitaarwerk van Carlos Santana. Meestal is de goede blues al zo oud dat het ook echt oud klinkt. Dit is een sprankelende opname die het oude blues genre in het nu plaatst.

Toch is de blues-vorm en is de stem van John Lee Hooker bepalend voor de bovenmatige pracht van dit nummer.

The Healer
John Lee Hooker
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, oh Lord, Lord

Hmm, hmm, hmm
Blues a healer, all over the world
Blues a healer, healer, all over the world, all over the world

The blues can heal you, early one morning
It can heal you
The blues can heal you

One night, I was laying down, feeling so bad, so low, so low
My woman had left me, blues came along and healed me
