Hi Andrey,
Thanks for reworking it ;)
I guess it isn't Sol Mill, it seems to be for sale though...I guess the old country house you're talking about. He hasn't got a studio, or a small one. He mentioned that in one of the radio interviews.
Even a blues/gospel album!
And he can live of his royalties.

Hi Anneke,

at first I was almost sure it is his old Berkshire home, but then I was confused by such lines in this article, as "home for Jazzee Blue label" (registered with Sol Mill address) and "this house saw a lot of history too" (implications about its former owners, such as Gus Dudgeon and Jimmy Page). It also described as something big and not affordable, related to rolayties which helped to afford it. Chris moved to Berkshire house in mid 80s, long before his financial situation became stable, so that house is surely not something only affordable by big royalties.

But Sol Mill was indeed sold in 2007 to a yoga-classes master, I even came across her website or article about her mentioning Chris using the barn studio. Maybe Chris moved there again when he could afford it?

BTW, liked the arcticle author's comment on Twitter about Chris's home: https://twitter.com/henryyates3/status/ ... 2797435904

best regards

Hilarious :)
Btw did you see the photo that came with the article Andrey, no clue how to get it up here.
He looks really as the author described him. No popstar indeed.
Best wishes,
Anneke

Sad it is the only picture from this session, could find another...

It sure is easy to like Derek Trucks, one of the best current slide guitar players out there!

Thanks MRB and FB, I read it there and posted the whole thing here :)
Rather 10 times posting, than miss information. :D
Chris Rea doesn;t give that many interviews that long and informative.
I just watched the documentary of von Trips and Ferrari. Interesting, but La Passione is much more interesting from my perspective.

As some kind of a fan of documents I might enjoy document more but that is something what I have to see first. Think I get my copy for the Christmas.

Hi Ann, MRB, Hernan and others!

Again good news about articles on Chris! He is featured on the cover of the fresh issue of The Blues magazine (Classic Rock magazine branch), you can find his name and recent picture on the upper left:

Here is the announcement at Team Rock website: http://www.teamrock.com/news/2015-12-04 ... 26-out-now

A friend of mine who found this, has ordered this issue via Ebay and promised to share a scan of the article, can't wait!

Best wishes
Andrey

And even more news! An amazing rare official video shot 26 years ago was posted on Youtube the day before yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9_u2CSIOvE

A really rare (and maybe unique) occasion when Chris apprears on the same stage along with such big time fellow artists as Mark Knopfler and Cliff Richard and sings NOT his own song (I Left My Heart in San Franciso, originally composed in 1954 by Douglass Cross & George Cor and sung by Tony Bennett). Chris and Max Middleton (finally without hat!), accompanying him on grand piano, appear on the 21st minute of the record. At the end of the video you can see a still-shot with the only photo I know which depicts Chris together with Mark Knopfler.

Shame on me, but not only did I never knew of this trubute concet, but had no clue who Roger Scott was. In fact, I did have this record of Chris in my collection, which I had got from a fan long ago, but it was marked simply as Roger Scott Tribute and the date was erroneously given as 1998 instead of 1989, and I was thinking it was Chris's performance at the prominent Ronnie Scott's jazz club on an unknown special occasion. Now that know the occasion and the exact place - Abbey Road studios. I guess this concert was only aired on BBC radio, never televised. Here is some more info on this concert: http://www.oneverybootleg.nl/rogerscott.htm

Great thanks to my fellow Mark Knopfler fan who posted this video.

Best regards
Andrey
