Re: New comp?

Interesting, the edel comp not so, but the vinyl release of 'The very Best of' on his official store must come with his approval I guess, is this an indication of a return to his older stuff, a revisit and perhaps a search of the vaults, I wonder who has the rights now to the Smile album that has be...

Re: Master tapes for 1982 album "Smile" found again

I am far more in hope that it will, and be successful too. Remember when the Blue Guitars 11 CD set came out Chris explained execs told him he wouldn't get his costs back but he proved them wrong and it sold well and made money. So this can or could be the same. We underestimate how loyal a followin...

Re: Master tapes for 1982 album "Smile" found again

I guess on the theme of other singers singing Chris's songs, you have a full album of Sarah randle 'The Sparrow' which chris has since put out some of his own versions. 1. The Sparrow 2. Working Day 3. Cry Baby Cry 4. Do What You Do 5. Picture Of You 6. That’s How Strong My Love Is 7. Come Around 8....

Love your suggestion Bart :-)
Some really interesting knowledge there Andrew, it's fascinating knowing there are potentially a river of songs by Chris we are yet to hear !

Re: Master tapes for 1982 album "Smile" found again

This is brilliant, and I'm sure there are more tapes elsewhere (or from the same source) as Chris himself has said many times he records far more songs than make it to an actual album released. Perhaps the archives will be opened up and a box set of lost recordings can be released. How about ideas f...

Thanks, he looks relaxed and well. Like the introduction 'someone everyone in the world will know...chris rea.' He even claps himself :-)

Re: The Tour 2017

Hi, loving the new Album, the support for the UK leg of the tour is a Scottish singer/songwriter C Macleod. Several videos on You Tube. Sounds a little like Chris Issak IMO. I get to see Chris at Harrogate this time, really looking forward to it. :-)

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Some of you are debating Chris's health. Don't forget he says in an interview linked here earlier that he suffered a stroke. On top of his other health issues we are lucky he still wants to tour. With all this going on he maybe hasn't been as prolific in his song writing as usual.?

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Hardly whole album if you hear 10 second samples and one full single before album release :) Also things are changed for good in this matter as well as in with many other things in general, no going back. I like to hear samples and I would listen full album too if it will be possible before release...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

I'm a bit old fashioned. I Want the album to be a whole surprise other than the one released song. It use to be great to put an album on and have 10 or 11 brand new songs, never heard, to be excited about and give a thrill. That way you could turn off from the world for 45/50 minutes and discover wh...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Personally I like the song on first listen, sits somewhere between Gods Great Banana skin album and Stony Road. Yes it is 'typical' Chris Rea which is what I actually like about it. There is no pleasing some people when asking for a new release, yearning for a more traditional CR sound. He does that...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

I am hoping the album is of new songs, commercially easy on the ear is fine by me. My other thought was a compilation of songs to the 'love' theme from the catalogue which wouldn't be so exciting. Will be hoping to get tickets to either Harrogate or Sheffield. gREAt news all the same, it's what we h...
