Re: 1980 Tracks on Soft Top, Hard Shoulder.

As stated on the CD single these tracks were indeed recorded in 1980. This is the original version of "Sierra, Sierra". If you listen to the 1983 version, it has a typically 80s remix production all over it and was no doubt re-hashed for the b-side on Let it Loose. "One Sweet Tender Touch" made it (...

Any c...

deleted forum topic - the new single

Re: New Single...

Um...are there any new lyrics of any kind in this song? Or has he just taken a few words like "Highway", "chained", "sunshine" etc and re-ordered them to make the same song under a different name? I've been a fan of Chris Rea for 16 years (despite the "starter Chris Rea fan" bollocks top right)and I...
