Oh yes, you all came up with a few good ones....
I would like to hear Gone Fishing, once. Square peg, round hole, would also be quite OK.
What I liked best about the last tour, was the first song, after the Delmonts. The start of the HBN part, that screaming guitar.... this goes deep dowm into your toes and everywhere.....great !!!

I purchased an EP CD w/3 versions of Square Peg and it really shows you how the same song can be totaly rearranged ! He does a version on this EP called Front Room Demo that is amazing !
I keep trying to come up w/ 15 songs I'd want him to play but i just can't cut the list down to 15.
It would have to include;
Fool if You Think it's Over (Al Green piano & organ -the way Chris Rea wanted to do it)
On The Beach (long version)
Where The Blues Come From
Josephine (the way he did it on THe Road to Hell & Back WOW !)
Shadow of the Big Man
If I ever Get Over You
THe mention of Your Name
Beyond that I think i'd just ask him to play whatever he wants because i just couldn't decide !!

This song just one of many that shows the many talents Chris has.This is a fanastic version of this song and I think better than the version thats on Blue Cafe.I did list 15 songs here but I think if it would be better if we could list 15 albums and ask Chris to pick 15 songs :)

Far from home
Looking for a rainbow
The closer you get
Hey Gringo
Sing out the devil
Set me free
Hired Gun
Because its you
Born bad
Twister Inside
Love`s strange ways
Pigs might fly
When the good Lord... (like he did it on the stony road tour)
Work Gang
My blue world say hello

Hi Everybody,
[quote="lilybee"]Where's that song from? :shock:.

I think it was a B side but not sure what was on the A side.There are loads of these songs that don't appear on any of the albums.Do you know such songs as "Look Out For Me" or maybe "Sunrise".There are quite a few of them.

I know PIGS MIGHT FLY only from a live bootleg from 83, probably a cover song? It`s a great blues- rocker and would perfectly fit to his new style.

Hi Mufo,
I agree with you.I like this song too and I wonder why Chris never put any of these songs on his albums.True too that it would suit his style now. :)

Hi Tina, :D

I think this is a great theme for a new thread; B sides and rare recordings.

Would some of our more knowledgeable CR friends put some sort of list with info about rare recordings, B sides, including the A sides, year of recordings, etc. It would greatly help someone like me who has no longer access to those records, specially earlier ones.

Calling to Chris in Poland, Ronald, Bart, Andrew, etc., and anybody else who knows about these songs, :D :D )

You guys did pretty good on this thread:

Thanks a bunch,

Hi Lily,
Great idea.I have most of these so I could suppose I could look them up on the net and try and find them but nothing could beat the knowledge that fellow fans could give us on these songs. :)

OK, queen-i. Love you, by the way...
We should all like to have the chance to chat with each other, don't you think so ?

And what happens in days as we have now ? No tour on the way, no new songs to comment on, just our combined passion for the man, the guitar, the voice.....

I think we should just enjoy each others' comments, now...
Remember, that old CSNY song: if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with.....

Yeah, and , ... girls, I always want to be the one you're with..... LOL....

Have a great time, you all, enjoy the Rea music forever, and .... let's dance....
Greetz,
Alain

Whats wrong with doing what we are doing now? Just talk to each other about Chris and all the other fanastic information we have about him.All it takes is for a fan to start a post and others will answer.Lily has proven that.

Just like you said here yourself.Keep in touch
