Hint to Chris Rea; Rickie Lee Jones's newest CD

Post by chrisreafan » 09 Sep 2012, 07:46

The legendary cult heroine Rickie Lee Jones returns with her latest outing The Devil You Know, a surprising and fascinating collection of covers produced by famed musician (and longtime fan) BEN HARPER.

Thank you for pointing out to this CD. It hasn't been released yet; it's scheduled for Sept. 18, 2012.
The article in the Rolling Stone magazine suggests it's going to be an interesting RLJ's work, especially with Ben Harper in charge.
BTW, the new double album (Privateering) by Mark Knopfler is resembling Chris Rea, in several bluesy songs.
Take care,
Chris

Hello Chris,

I have DeLuxe version of Privateering (got codes for going to his concert in may next year, but i gave them away to somebody else (can buy up to 6 tickets), reply was that ticketvendors sold them 10 euro's cheaper as Mark Knopfler intends...but a good effort of Mr Knopfler to sell the tickets direct to the public.

As you see i have Deluxe version but ...didn't even knew Chris was involved...have to read it he he.

I also have the Deluxe version of Bob Dylan's Tempest.

I think Chris Rea also reads "the Rolling Stone" so maybe it wasn't neccesary, but now you said it (you stumbled searching on the Net on the article i assume). So it is good afterall.

Tremendous amount of new singles (Blues) and albums who are worthwhile, but have to make time to post it.

One good blues record and single (in my opinion) Coco robicheaux with Spiritland (album) and Brad Wilson with "I am still breathing' of the album Blues Magic.

Thanx!

Hi Ann,

I know I wasn't called up to the black board by you, but I feel obliged to reply since it was me who had mentioned some similarity between Mark Knopfler's and Chris Rea's blues songs. Of cause, Chris wasn't involved in Mark's project.
Best regards,
Chris

I misunderstood, thought about (also after reading the book which comes along the cd's (Deluxe)). sending an correction about my phrase. Now i know Chris mentioned it sounds like Chris Rea his Blues, if only a little bit, and i agree that with the Celtic sounds and the slide guitar comes near.

I am not recommending any buying by this audience of any artist or record if only Chris Rea, but those records will be bought mostly anyway (okay not the "best of" maybe).

My apologies to Chris and Ann and others who i put on the wrong foot, but English and my enthusiasm for music did me in this time.

it was not on purpose,

thanks.

An interesting compilation.
Coco Robicheaux, one of my favored musicians from Louisiana, passed away last November at the age of 64.
He was known for his "hoodoo blues" style. A mixture of cajun and blues.
Take care,
Chris

Hello Chris,

I did not knew him and that's my fault cause i am living with the blues since.........well my dad likes it too, maybe toolong (LOL). Stumbled and searched and came upon another album worthwhile of him "Louisiana Medicine Man". Also read that he is gone which is pretty **** bad.

Yeah, the compilations i make are no religion, but i think i have the time and maybe taste to search the Net for interesting CD's and make them even more interesting with other sounds. Everyone may have his or her opinion about the music, that's ok off course.

Ok bye for now,

MRB

Yes, but Knopfler does his blues with much better sound than Chris, more authentic sound with very good players. And no drum machines or other nonsense. Also, he has fabulous Kim Wilson on harmonica, the real deal in blues harmonica playing. This privateering is good album, I recommend it !

Listened to "the Album Privateering", it's not bad ;-), but I like his brother better (David). I hear some similarities in guitar playing (the slide), but still I like Chris better :D
And Keb Mo is a great talent on slide guitar and Delta blues, just my humble taste...
