CR rare pics from press packages (???)

Post by andrew fischer » 12 Mar 2014, 14:23

Hi all, just by accident I came across a heap of rare CR pics, seemingly from official press packs:

Early 1984

Image
Image

One of summer open-air festivals in 1985

Image
Image

1985-1986 or even 1988???? (I have never seen CR with such a guitar with Willie and the Poor Boys sticker)

Image

1987-1988, mirror image

Image

1990 (familiar shirt and coat)

Image
Image
Image

Late 1991, Holland, Gold Award for Auberge album sales

Image

Funny image, who can tell the year? It is between 1989 and 1994, but more exactly when?..

Image


Taken from here: http://www.pictorialpress.com/?s=chris+ ... mit=Search

All of them but the very first one I have never seen before...

best regards
Andrey

Hi everyone,

just came across three promo shots of Chris in a good resolution. I have seen these pics before but no in good quality.

15.09.1987 (so the backside of the print says), a promo photo session held before Chris departed on his first and the only World Tour (October-November 1987). I wish I knew the photographer's name.

Later that year the pictures from this session were used for the artwork of Chris Rea Vol. II compilation released in Japan: http://eil.com/images/main/Chris-Rea-Vol-II-242946.jpg

Image


Fall 1987 World Tour, exact venue/date is unknown as well as the author...

Image

Early 1990, The Road to Hell Tour, exact venue/date/shooter unknown.

Image


Take care
Andrey

I was trying to recall where could I see the signed picture before and found out it was used for the inlay of the Duets album by Elton John.

Also glad to find the photographer's name in that booklet, it is Allan Titmuss who is the author of several very good and well-known promo-shots of Chris from early 90s. (www.allantitmuss.com)

Hi Anneke,

thanks a lot for this link!

To be honest, I am started to avoid watching close-up shots of Chris as his face looks very, very old now...

I know the only another 'big' artist who is of the same age and same poor look - Phil Collins, who cancelled his widely promoted and awaited performance in Miami due to health problems just before the show...

best regards

Hi Andrey,

His faces ages because of the treatments he had, but that's how he looks. The picture I placed here two years ago, come close to that one. Only some more grey now.
Still the pictures are wonderful.
I made one (this Tour)of his hands playing the guitar, without body and face and saw his hands look younger...
He has an interesting face. Maybe I don't feel that way,like you do, since I'm a fan only for ten years and have only seen him this way. I hear this from more people Andrey, who won't go to see him, because he aged so soon.

It is the whole package that made me love him for his music. And grateful he is still here, his shows are energetic, he doesn't slow down... I don't know how to explain it. That is the whole of the package...It's his attitude, he doesn't seem to care, but he will care I guess.
Haven't seen recent pic's of Phil Collins...can't compare...
I hear you though.

Best wishes,
Anneke

hey com'on, everyone are getting older, if you are over 60 you can´t look the same you looked back in 80´s, so stop whining about how Chris looks :)

Hi again,

I have found this photo by accident on ChrisReaFans page on FaceBook. There is no description of the picture given there, but it looks quite familar to me, it must be from an interview article from ca. 2002 as Chris's image is close to that in All Summer Long clip.

Image

Could anyone give me exact credits for this picture? Thanks a lot!

best regards
Andrey
