Help with different Road to Hell versions

Post by veegee77 » 21 Jun 2008, 20:08

Hi! New to fourum. From U.S.

Amazon has a listing for Road to Hell & Back (Import) for $44.99. Here's the link:
http://www.amazon.com/Road-Hell-Back-Ch ... 36&sr=1-18

Some of the songs are listed twice.

They also have a link for Road to Hell & Back Deluxe Edition for $29.00.

Does anyone have a better explanation of the differences between the two and why the "Deluxe" would cost less than the regular edition?

Any/all help is greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to the board!

The $44 one says they are all on one CD. I have only seen the edition with 2 CDs - 10 on one, 8 on the other. Listed in Amazon as the 'Deluxe". Interestingly, if you click on that link, the $28.xx one says "new", and the prices go up to over $70.00 and those say "used"!!

The song list is the same so I don't think there is much difference. They are both 'imported'. Go look on eBay or eBay UK, you should be able to find it much cheaper.

Cheers, Thom

Hi and like what Thom said welcome! This is the BEST Chris Rea site on the net.
Veegee if you are thinking of buying this C.D it would be worth considering getting the DVD that is available. If there is one thing better than hearing Chris live it's seeing him too.I think I think I am correct in saying that the DVD is region free at least the one I have is and I bought it in Dublin. As a matter of interest how long have you been a fan of Chris?
Tina :) :)

Hi Veegee, I stand in the row welcoming you!

Don't let yourself being ripped off by Amazon; if you buy the CD directly from Amazon for the indicated $44 price you'll get one-day, super money-save, ultra oh-my-god service and Carmen Electra herself will bring it to your home wearing nothing but fancy panties :D (if you're a girl, sorry then, imagine the same with, err, Matthew McConaughey)
But if a single envelope and standard delivery cost can do it for you, order from the marketplace. Just click xy used & new and choose one for half a price.

Yours,
Chris (long-time Amazon customer)

P.S. I agree with Tina about the DVD. I own the single CD and the DVD and that's a perfect combination.

I love the DVD!!!, like Tina said, is so much better to watch Chris play than just listening to him.... 8)

We watch ours on a 52" tv home theatre, (with surround, loud!), the closest thing for us to being there... :lol:

Ok Ok Lily why not rub it in!!! :D Why would you want to see Chris Live when he is live enough in your sitting room? To watch Chris playing guitar on that size T.V would have to be amazing. You would be able to see every move Chris makes.

Thank-you everyone for your feedback. Sorry it took so long to post this. I was making a life-changing career decision which will take me out of Omaha, NE (where I've lived all of my life) and into Limon, CO (Just outside of Denver/Colorado Springs).

Thanks Thom, I have purchased the DVD that was referenced and am looking forward to it.

I discovered Mr. Rea's music when I heard "The Road to Hell" on the radio back in 1991(?) Got that album, New Light, Auberge, Espresso Logic but have had difficulty getting others.

I plan on rectifying that situation.

However, it is confusing because I would like the BEST version of each album (hence my original question/post). I see there are re-issues being released now too.

Chrismiller, I'm a guy so Carmen Electra is okay (I guess). How do I get to the "marketplace" to buy other recordings?

Looking forward to chatting with you all more!

Hey Veegee,

Let me be the first here wishing you good luck for your new life!

About marketplace items, it's very easy. Only search for the product as usual so amazon.com lists you the results. E.g. searching Chris Rea the first result is Road to Hell CD and you can see a link '51 Used & new from $6.94'. When you click on it you get to the marketplace instantly with the list of individual sellers offering used and new copies of the product. Under the 'Seller Information' you can also find a link that shows you shipping rates. When you choose the desirable copy only click 'Add to cart'.

Shopping from the marketplace is only a few dollars cheaper sometimes; but it's always worth to explore since you can get a brand new Blue Guitars album for $78.83 while its original Amazon price is $125.99!

Hope it was helpful and understandable, otherwise feel free to ask.
Yours,

Chris

Thanks Chris!

I did buy The Road to Hell & Back DVD. Haven't gotten the album yet. Need to get a couple CDs for the drive to Colorado next month.
