Chris Rea Road Songs For Lovers BMG

Guitarist - - Music -

In­tox­i­cat­ing Strat-fu­elled road trip It fig­ures that a self-con­fessed mo­tor en­thu­si­ast should put to­gether an al­bum of road songs – af­ter all, Chris Rea’s big­gest hit to date was Road To Hell (Pt 2) back in 89. But the fo­cus on Road Songs For Lovers couldn’t be any more dif­fer­ent to that par­tic­u­lar rant about the frus­tra­tions in­spired by mo­tor­way driv­ing. On this al­bum, the cen­tral theme is the ro­mance of the open road – and, in­deed, ro­mance it­self – and that sig­na­ture grav­elly bari­tone and soul­ful, silky smooth slide guitar have never sounded bet­ter. This Novem­ber sees Chris take to the road for a short run of gigs in ma­jor cities through­out the UK. [DM] Stand­out track: The Road Ahead For fans of: Dire Straits, JJ Cale
