CD Reviews

Excellent and First-Ever Career-Spanning Collection
Bill Anthony | North Texas United States | 01/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, the mastering here is excellent throughout. And, almost every big hit is here,
with almost every album represented, from Rea's late-70's debut to his latest recordings.
The track listing does not include dates or album sources, and there are no liner notes
or mastering and producer credits.
My only complaint is that on the pre-1988 songs, the 1988 re-recordings are used, unless
one was not made. So, we get the original hit recordings of "Diamonds" (1979) and "Loving You" (1982),
but we get the 1988 re-make of "Fool (If You Think It's Over)" instead of the original 1978 hit.
The 1988 re-recordings (6 are included here), made for NEW LIGHT THROUGH OLD WINDOWS- THE BEST OF CHRIS REA,
have been re-used on several compilations over the years. This would have been a perfect
collection for fans and collectors if they had used the original hit versions on those 6 cuts.
Chris Rea has done 24 studio albums, and released about 60 singles, so this doesn't get them
all, but it's got 32 of his biggest and best, and 2 new songs as well.
