Re: Steiger Award 2018

This confirms my worst fears. Although Chris has always been kind of reclusive in terms of his private life with many months going by without a sign of life - at least we would have got at least a little update on his health status if it wasn't that bad. But no news since his collapse - and it's al...

Re: The Tour 2017

My personal review: I did celebrate my 50. birthday on this concert. Chris came exactly on my birthday to town! So I did not run away (as in all the other years), but I stayed and invited some friends to go to the concert. Over all, it must have been my 21. C.R. concert or so... And it was one of th...

Re: The Tour 2017

Forever in my dreams my heart will be
Hanging on to this sweet memory
A day of strange desire
And a night that burned like fire
Take me back to the place that I know
On the beach

Re: The Tour 2017

So please watch a whole gig and say what you think. I really had goosebump moments. Hello Ann, you´re complete right; we all have to see on ourselves. The first impressions from Youtube-Phone-clips do not tell anything. So I look forward to the concert that I will join. And I have to admit, I almos...

The Tour 2017

Hello everybody, I´ve seen some clips from the first concert in Amsterdam yesterday. And, to be frank, it appeared a bit boring. It were quite the same songs/arrangements as in the last tour up from 2010. Chris jammed through the old songs in an (as I find) uninspirated way: Josephine, on the beach ...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Thank you all for the first reviews of the new album. I try to like it, too (as a passionate fan must do). But as I heard the live performance this morning on BBC2, it was clear to me, that the production of the album isn´t really good. To hear Chris singing "Stainsby Gilrls" with his fraglke voice,...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

One huge mistake is that it says Rea's dad had a coffee bar, when it was ice cream place As the postman didn´t bringt the new album today, I put the "Blue Guitars"-Book out again. And indeedn, on page 8, in the interview, Chris said, it was a "Coffee bar". Thats maybe the source for the expression ...

Re: Wishes for the upcoming tour

Munich, I think, is a special place for his concerts. Hi Chris, thank you for appreciation of my hometown, and the list of concert halls here. CR was also at the old airport, the Herculessaal, the Audi Dome. And minimum 7 times in the Olympic hall. I was at least at 22 of this gigs ;-) Hopefully th...

Re: Wishes for the upcoming tour

If I had three wishes free, (and Chris would feel comfortable with his voice), I would like to hear again
- midnight blue
- out of the darkness and
- texas
from the water sign-album.
How about the others here?

Re: Dave Richards - the most underestimated factor?

I have very certian projets ready to be launched and I even tried to talk it over with Jim Beach, Chris's long-time ex-manager (Dave Richards times included) and he said he has to discuss it with Chris himself Dear Andrew, if I understand you right, than you are in contact with important people of ...

Toby wrote: The old albums until 1986 still lack something - a certain kind of roundness and the tracks don't seem to be connected in a way they are on later records. Thanks also for this technical details! And I admit, the "Kelly-albums" are well done and more Rocking and more successful. but the t...

Dave Richards - the most underestimated factor?

As a reaction on the (uninspired) new song "The road ahead" I will remember on the producer of the 4 best Rea-albums, David Richards. He worked in the Mountain Studios in Montreaux, which was owned by the band Queen. And here the breakthrough-album "Water sign" was born, as well as " Wired to the mo...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Hi Andrew, as my nickname says, I am the biggest fan a musician can imagine since 1993. From the first note I have heard in a concert in 83, I was electricised by Chris`Music. I played almost every guitar solo, sung every song, and tried to feel every mood of his songs. But my enthusiasm is a bit ov...
