5.0 out of 5 stars Footsteps 18 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I heard Chris was recording a 'Covers' Album, my immediate reaction was a mixture of anticipation: which songs would he choose to record, and trepidation: would he carry it off.

As I listened to the Album, anticipation turned to delight and trepidation to elation. Once again, the Master produced a Masterpiece.

The artwork on the Album is first class with a lovely glossy booklet containing, not only all the lyrics, but gorgeous pictures of Chris.

Firststeps leads us gently in to Chris' musical journey with an haunting piano solo and echoing voice from Chris. Very quickly we are transported to

Turn, Turn, Turn, which is the new single from the Album. This is lively with wonderful guitar rhythms, very catchy and is very well sung with lovely harmonies.

The Long and Winding Road has a beautiful piano accompaniment, fabulous orchestration and sung with a feeling that other Artists fail to do.

Africa is just sensational. It clearly highlights the depth and breadth of Chris' vocal range. Again, beautiful harmonies. This song has to be heard to be appreciated.

Without You is sung with such feeling and, in my opinion, probably the most difficult song to emulate. Chris' version is absolutely wonderful. You can hear the passion in his voice and when he hits the top note, shivers run down my spine.

Where Have All The Flowers Gone is another well known song. However, the words, from other Artist who have recorded it, seem to be lost. Not so with Chris. Once again the listener can hear the feeling and passion in his voice. The pace of the song is perfect, allowing us to really hear the lyrics and feel the true meaning of the song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Second hand? 15 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This item arrived with no plastic outer wrapping and clear evidence of having been used (fingerprints and scratches on the case). Whilst this does not detract from the content provided by Mr deBurgh, it is still disappointing. If I had wanted a second-hand CD, I would have popped down to the local Charity Shop. As this is a Christmas present it's too late to risk returning it. Furthermore it's a stocking-filler for my wife so I will have to show the Amazon receipt to prove my defence or I will be searching Amazon for a Dog house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris de Burgh Footsteps Review 18 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
Footsteps is a unique collection of classic cover songs that have all contributed to making Chris de Burgh the brilliant singer/songwriter that he is today. They are also some of Chris's own personal favourites. The album is the 17th studio album released by Chris de Burgh. All these songs were recorded with full band or full orchestra.

It opens with a short track called 'First Steps' which is written by Chris himself and which is the intro to the whole album. Such classics such as 'Without You', 'Sealed With A Kiss', 'American Pie' and 'The Long And Winding Road' are all on this CD. For a full listing of all the songs please refer to the track listing in the description of the album. There is one track called Blackbird that features Chris's eldest son Hubie playing guitar.

Chris has done a unique interpretation of the classic 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone'? and it really makes you sit up and listen to the lyrics and you can literally see a mini film in your head as Chris sings the song. Of course a lot of Chris de Burgh's songs evoke mini films within your imagination. My own personal favourites of this album are 'Sealed With A Kiss' 'The Long And Winding Road' 'The Last Thing On My Mind' 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone' and 'Without You'. The last track is another new Chris de Burgh song and is called 'Footsteps'. This kind of finishes off the album with a song which starts very gently, and talks about all the songs he's loved along the way, the faces he's seen along the way, people and places , and then the lyrics fade and it slowly builds up to a powerful instrumental section before it fades away with Chris singing again. All in all this is another brilliant CdeB album. Total length is 47 minutes long, and is very good value for money. I totally recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars An honest appraisal 9 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was absolutely bowled over by this CD. I have been a follower of Chris De Burgh since he first came to the fore - can't remember the year - but I so enjoyed this CD. He managed the impossible - to make covers as good and in some cases better than the originals. Where they were absolute standards he gave them his own treatment and made them equal to the original. The excitement still remains in his performance and took me back to his show in Penshurst many years ago. I am hooked again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Album of covers 15 April 2014

He covers a wide variety of songs and does it well, I'm not sure that he needs to do that when he writes such fantastic songs himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Footsteps 2 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a Chris De Bergh fan for over 20 years and this cd is just as good as the first one I ever bought - I always like to buy his cd's as his singing is so unique and recognisable when you hear his voice. I know Lady in Red is not Chris' favourite song but it was after hearing this song I became a fan of his and will continue to buy his cd's whenever he issues one. Most of my friends also like his music.
