Re: Bob Dylan & Mark Knopfler Tour

Thanks Bart .... I'd read your post on my phone , and at my age it's really hard to take in information in small writing :D :D

Yeah , it's funny when you randomly start listening to a old band , and all of a sudden they appear all the time :shock:

Re: Bob Dylan & Mark Knopfler Tour

Hi Jim ...........I was at this gig on the earlier part of the tour ......Bob stood stage right , played a keyboard all night , no guitar , then occasionally would appear centre-stage , howling away on his harmonica , with a stance that was reminicent to Jimmy Cagney .......Actually it was quite end...

Re: Glasgow March 29th 2012 - Awesome as ever

Just a footnote to the full and constructive review from Alan............ Final thought to those who were there.........what about the Cat in the Cowboy Hat and shades walking around annoying everybody,including Chris, filming on his phone for 10 minutes completely unchallenged....only good bit of ...

Re: Glasgow March 29th 2012 - Awesome as ever

Hi Alan, thanks for that review, that shows me a different side of it all. Wow, I was thinking that the Moscow audience wasn't appreciative enough because some people just kept coming and going, because many started leaving while Chris still was playing 'It's All Gone' that not so many know and tha...

Re: Glasgow March 29th 2012 - Awesome as ever

Hi folks , sorry about the delay , I meant to write my review of the Glasgow gig last week …….. Like most of us , I’ve seen Chris many times, (First time in ’86,) and as has been said before , we have had a fairly static set-list for almost a decade ..... That could be seen as totally negative , but...

Re: Gilbert O`Sullivan

Yeah thats correct , Chris plays accordion on the wonderful track "I Like It , But " ...........both were on the same label at the time , (Magnet ) and was produced by Gus Dudgeon (Deltics etc)

Gilbert is very under-rated ........

Re: Lies become the truth

Hi Jim ,
I believe that "Lies become the truth" was written , but not used, for an un-named Kevin Costner movie .......Never appeared anywhere else

Re: Chris Rea "B Sides and Singles" recordings

Hi Jim ,
Great song hidden away on a rare hits album ....typical C.R......the story goes that it was written for an un-named Kevin Costner movie, but was obviously not used...here is a link to it on youtube

Re: Tour Reports 2010

Was at the Glasgow gig on Friday , and as Peter and BLUEHOOD already said , it was wonderful !! As has been mentioned before ,he managed to keep the same-old set-list fairly fresh with some nice changes to the arrangements of the songs. I know we would all like to hear our own personal favourites (i...
