Synopsis

Album Description
2004 album from the acclaimed British singer/guitarist, the follow-up to his hugely successful Dancing Down The Stoney Road (2002), Although Rea scored a top 20 hit in the U.S. with 'Fool (If You Think It's Over)' in 1978 and has recorded many critically successful albums, much of his best material remains deleted or unreleased in the U.S. Like many artists of his caliber, he's held in great esteem and remains a top selling artist all over Europe. Because of his huge fanbase, he has continued to concentrate on that region instead of trying to break the American market. Fortunately, there are still plenty of American fans who are devoted to the man and his music. Blue Jukebox, released on Rea's own label, features 13 tracks and includes a full color 20-page booklet of song lyrics and artwork. Jazzee Blue.

The howling Bluesman is born
Peyman Moazami | Tehran, IRAN | 05/08/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chris Rea is back again. Pouring out what he had hidden for more than 20 years. He is the new meaning to the blues. After his surprise masterpiece double album, "Dancing down the stony road", he is here to tell us that he wants to "Paint his jukebox blue". The album is the continuation of his Stony Road CD with the addition of some excellent Saxophones. Rea plays less guitar but properly and magically. The voice is still the king and the music is a nice accompany for lonely nights. The best cuts in my opinion are: Long is the time, hard is the road; Paint my jukebox blue and Steel river Blues. Beutiful arrangement, Jazzy bluesy mood (reflective of his JazzeeBlue label) and masterful musicianship makes The Blue Jukebox a pioneer effort in Rea's resume. The howling bluesman is born. Thanks for the inspiration."
One of the best from Chris Rea

"I'm a big fan of Chris Rea, and I like both his blues and rock songs. I have to say that this is the best Rea's album I've bought, and I have many!. Although this album had many melodies from previous ones, but it was so distinct in it's use of Saxphone. If you liked stoney road you will love this one."

"If you are chris Rea Fan, Blue Jukebox sounds like a beautifully aged "Road to Hell" Album. Slow and very melodic. If you expect a fast Chris Rea album you will be deceived. If you have yourself aged with Chris Rea's music, this album will be a jewel, specially after being heard 3 or 4 times.
If you are new to Chris Rea's music, start with "Road to hell" instead.
