Reporting some old stuff recently acquired:

• I can hear your heartbeat + From love to love (amazing!) - 12" maxi
• Heaven + Theme from Pantile Journals - 7" single, has the '91 Naked Truth Tour summary printed on it
• I don't know what it is (...) + Mystery man - 7" promo
• New Light Through Old Windows CD - gave as gift, now bought again. Side note: most creative name of "the best of" compilation I've ever spotted.
• two 12" Special Mini Albums, vol II & III, contains some songs I haven't spotted anywhere else yet

Some interesting CD singles:

• Looking for the summer - contains "Six up" and "Teach me to dance" that I have not even known about :) and a beautiful cover
• Sweet summer day - outstanding energetic remixes of the mentioned song

Last album: Blue Guitars. Hottttttt....
Now saving dough for the FHBN.

Bart, ur big shipment rule. You the man. :D

6 Up and Teach Me To Dance are B sides to single releases.

Tina :) :)
Pick up the pieces and start again.

Haha... hey, whom are you talking to? Fun = yes. Cash = no. They were actually cheap, second hand but being in very good shape. I'm not sure how come, probably Chris is not considered as a big star here in Poland, hence the low prices. And good shape is quite suspicious ;) - weren't they listened or what? My favourite records, especially vinyls (CDs we can rip and listen by PC), are quite worn up... But whatever, got 'em, like 'em.
And technically, it wasn't literally recently ;)

That's what I'm talking about! For a long time I wasn't aware that the "singles" are not just "one single promo song". Realizing the B-sides quickly followed with further hunting for Chris Rea records, with some success. I don't know how could I be so retarded :?

There is a lot of cheap priced vinyl on E Bay from Chris and it's in good shape too.I think Chris is one of those type of musicians that has fans in every country but isn't in the league of the likes of Bruce Springsteen or Mark Knopfler although he should be he's that good.

Zgred you are funny and if you think your retarded or mentally challenged might be a better way to say it then welcome to the club.There is a lot of us fans who are only discovering these B sides for the 1st time.It's good fun hunting them down.

You know, I don't really get all this schtick of Big Asskicking Rock Star. League, what is league? Do the better sales make one higher in ranks? I listened to guys you mentioned, tried some other more or less CR-related or recommended (Eagles, Walsh etc.) but still no kick-in occured. It just doesn't work. Knopfler is better guitarst, they say. Another one sings better. Okay! Fine for me. I listen for the 1000th time to Windy Town and I forget about the whole world and suddenly I Know Where The Blues Come From :)

Uh, ranting again, but where's the better place than here.
Concerning the B-sides, I have read the big topic about it and you're right, many of us long-time fans has found out this thing recently.

Hey! we have yet another die hard fan here :) :) I know how you feel These are excellent musicians but they don't have the edge Chris has.

Isn't that great though? it's like finding a couple of Chris Rea C.D's that you don't have.
Tina :) :)

And this is exactly what's happening, sir! I found many of these Bs as really excellent stand-alone songs that I would gladly exchange with some others, that has been placed on albums. Pantile Journals, From love to love, Look out for me... those are some hidden treasures.

From those you mentioned, "I Thought I was..." and "And when she smiles" does not really suit my taste, but no chance it's gonna stop me :)

Alan
Perhaps Zgred is really Chris REa trying to infiltrate his own fan website ?
Hence he hides part of his face ?
Well maybe not !
