Re: Hello!?

If you miss online commentary and discussion on Chris, the stevehoffman music forum has some threads about Chris. Well worth reading. You will also find links to a guy who blogged reviews about the 2019 reissues. One such thread: https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/chris-rea.828912/page-20#post-2...

Re: Hello!?

Thank you for the update; I missed the programme.

Pity he didn’t feel up to promoting the recent release, it didn’t make the UK top 100 ( although it did chart briefly at #60 in the physical sales chart)

The liner notes state that those two tracks were excluded at Chris's request...

Re: new CD on September 16?

They keep pushing the release date back :?
I suppose it will be worth the wait.
It is now mentioned on superdeluxeedition website so at least it is getting some promo.

Re: new CD on September 16?

I think it would suit both parties if it sells more, and it will sell more if Chris does an interview...if he is healthy enough to do so. They had the YouTube video interviews for the deluxe releases last year, so there is some level of cooperation between Chris and Warner/Rhino. I would be surprise...

Re: new CD on September 16?

Quite late if they want good Christmas sales (physical), but I guess they don’t have great expectations for this set anyway.

It will interesting to o see if they have got Chris lined up for any promotional work, even if only print interviews.

Re: new CD on September 16?

Not all rarities by the look of it...a sides and b sides from all singles of that era so some “standard” songs but hopefully all the remixes and non album b sides too.

Hello!?

It is sad that this place is so quiet and that there is no news on Chris. Of course I understand his preference for privacy and his illness challenges, but would love to know that he is doing well on the health angle and, musically, would like to hear more about any more Rhino activity or new materi...

Re: Welcome Back

Thought this was gone for good, nice to see it back..and hope activity picks up. No idea how Chris is doing, whether he was well enough to be involved in the recent reissues and whether more will come...still enjoying those five releases. Would love 1981 through 1984 plus Smile, but I doubt we will ...

I see Fascination is the only song from The Lost Tapes missing from One Fine Day...
