... well, I know march '06 is far away, but perhaps it is nice to discusse the playlist...

Let us know what you would like to hear...

...as you all may know; I prefer the "old" songs (with "the road..." as my all-time favorite!) so I would like to hear some blues songs (25%) and some old songs (75%).... Well; don't think that will hapen, but I can keep on dreaming ... :roll:

I posted in another topic that, if you heard the new versions of some old songs on the tour last year, you will know that the 'blues' were always there, just not so obvious. I vote for a mix of old and new songs, new versions of old songs would be FAB :lol:

Because I have never heard Chris live, I would gladly listen to classic ones, something between '80 - '92, but the man played it so many times I understand he would probably choose his newest blues... well, it would be my "first time" so I don't lament :)

[EDIT: Please don't use this word] late starting..........:mrgreen:

Like most i would go for a 50/50 mix of old and new. Our past always leads to the future and so shouldn't be disregarded, but celebrated as a part of the journey to where we are today. Can't wait for Hull 21/04/2006. \:D/
could this be true, could this be me..

Well, I gotta say that these new tracks interests me most at the moment, but few old numbers would be nice to hear:

1. The Road To Hell, both 1 & 2 (Cliché choice for a die-hard fan who knows all the albums of Chris) :)

2. Windy Town

3. Soup of the day (He had a real blues songs before too)

4. Looking for a summer

Of course it would be nice to hear the whole catalog of his songs, but that would take the whole tour to get to listen them all :)
Too many good words to add here.
I better just sit back and drink beer. :)

...well I wouldn't mind that ! I hope that in March '06 I have finished my school, so I can take a month of. Let's say sessions of 18 hours a day, 6 days a week, for 2 months strait. Then we should have had most of his songs !


:wink: :wink: :D :D :wink: :wink:

Right, what a cool thing that would be, follow The Man to every gig in his tour :)

To much new stuff ???

Post by gjvg » 04 Nov 2005, 10:27

Well, normally it was possible to "learn" the new album-numbers before the tour started. So all the numbers in the set were (kind of) known.
But with about 130 new pieces , this is (at least for me :oops: ) impossible even with a tourdate end March (Amsterdam).

For me the kick of the gig ( :wink: ) is singing together, know what comes after the first 2 notes etc.
So for me : 30 % new and 70% older stuff

As you can read above; I WAS thinking the same... But, after listening to 'blue guitars' almost 24h a day since monday, I must admit (...what I never expected that there would come a moment I would say this...) that I hope he plays almost exclusive new stuf. Most of it I like very much, and I would love to hear how he plays some of them live, with limited musicians on stage, etc. So I think I changed my mind ... lets hear some old songs (and preferably not the "standard" Road, Beach, and Josephine) but mainly NEW songs !!!

'Blue guitars' - I love it !!

A big welcome Gjvg! Bart has beaten me by 2 minutes to say mainly what I was going to say :) I too have always loved the older stuff. T was not too sure when he began to make new songs and music the blues way, but I can,t believe how wonderful this new album is! I have already found some very beautiful tracks which really speak to me. I know what you mean about being able to sing all the familiar songs with Chris on tour, but I guess I will be learning some of the new ones before next year, as I am hoping he will be singing old and new. That is what I would like anyway :)

'Blue guitars' - I love it !!
