I recall Chris was said to have been trying to release a blues(-oriented) album since late 80s (as he said in interviews form those times). But the label(s) would never let him do that, though a decent percentage of blues-inspired records you can hear almost every album and Banana Skin seems to have the greatest percentage. The Blue Cafe was told to be intented as a blues album, but being forced by the lable after La Passione flop Chris has to re-do it as a pop-oriented instead. But it could be absolutely awsome to get an entirely blues-oriented album with early 90s band (Max, Robert, Sylvin, Martin) and also those-times engineers (Neil Amor, Stuart Epps, Justin Shirley-Smith) and producers (Jon Kelly, Paul Lilly) and live brass and strings and backing singers. That would obviously be a REAl masterpiece.MRB wrote:the blues album with gospel would be great. not so sure is the boxset approach needed, just album would be great. and like we talked with Andrew, it must be done with musicians, outside producer and engineer, without computer sounds and there could be a master piece.

While he sticks to his independence, he will continue releasing blues and soundtracks with a small addition of contemporary songsso that they could sell better.
I really hope Chris changed his management after all since I have been doubting its existence for a decade I think.
