Re: New Single...

The heart of many of chris's songs are very bluesy ideas, well definatley the chris rea brand of blues, e.g. on the beach, the idea of someone intensly missing a certain person, in a certain time and place, is definately the heart of a blues song, watch how he sings it on the DDSR DVD on the piano, ...

Re: Chris his new double album and singles/tour etc

I've just pre-ordered the new best of offering. Its a new release with just enough new stuff to make it worth while (new songs, and hopefully new paintings and interview!!) however, Im a bit disappointed with "another best off" I cant get my head around what chris says will happen, and what actually...

Re: About the new best of album

Hi guys,

In my opinion any new(ish) release is a good thing, hope he follows up with more earbooks however!

How can you get hold of the album if you dont live in germany? I live in the Uk, is it downloadable? order, can you order from amazon.de?

thanks for your help,

steve

Re: CAPO

Chris varies his guitar tunings, I think it on "I cant wait for love" he used open E, on songs like "easy rider" and "stony road" he capo's the third fret to G i think (shortens the strings) othertimes like on "Til the morning" on the last tour it was a D/C tuning, The Hustler open A. So he varies i...

Chris in Bournemouth'08

Great concert last night, chris played with a lot of heart and soul, the power of the blues certainly came across in his singing and slide work, which continues to blow me away. I've seen Chris once before, on his farewell tour in 2006, and having just turned 22 im relatively new to chris's work but...
