Biography

Few artists can lay claim to international success spanning three decades but, beginning with his very first release, Chris de Burgh has achieved precisely that.
The foundations for a remarkable and durable career were laid back in 1975 with the release of Chris’s debut album, ‘Far Beyond These Castle Walls’, featuring the single, ‘Flying’, which spent 17 weeks ... Read more in Amazon's Chris De Burgh Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Notes From Planet Earth is not Chris De Burgh's first "best of". Best Moves compiled his beguiling historico-fantasy-laden early material, Spark to a Flame popped up in 1989; The Love Songs Album was as obvious as its title; and The Lady in Red: The Best Of gave Americans in a hurry the precis and a weepy Diana tribute to boot. But this self-styled "Ultimate" package certainly plays to the diminutive singer's strengths as soft rock's Milk Tray man. And if the lady loves soft-centred ballads with a frosting of 80s synths, the author of the deservedly evergreen karaoke/wedding monster about the bird in the frock is well-represented in this tray of hymns to the fairer sex. New song "Two Sides To Every Story", meanwhile, is a polite version of Meat Loaf/Ellen Foley dynamics in a duet with Shelley (Tin Tin Out) Nelson. Hidden amongst the candlelit dinners, however, is a more dramatic and inventive storyteller: "Borderline" weaves Al Stewart-style wartime dramatics; "A Spaceman Comes Travelling" goes (ray) guns-a-blazing at Christianity's greatest story; and a blowsy, vaudeville-jazzy re-recording of "Patricia The Stripper" is Coward-esque mischief incarnate. Perhaps most surprising is "I Want It (And I Want It Now)", which musically outstrips its lyrical musings on consumer society with prowling beats and gloriously un-"Adult Contemporary" swathes of dirty guitars. --Jennifer Nine

Format: Audio CD
It opends with one of the hits Chris had in -82, on the album "The Getaway", "Don`t Pay The Ferryman". This is maybe a kind of overture on this cd. Of course, there are some of his ballads also, eight of the 17 tracks, are ballads. But I miss the really good ballads, such as "Hold On", "The Key", from the album "FAR BEYOND THESE CASTLE WALLS" (-75), "The Tower" , and the amazing " Just Another Poor Boy" from "SPANISH TRAIN ..."(-75) "I Will" , and " If You Really Love Her, Let Her Go" from " AT THE END OF A PERFECT DAY" (-79) There are more songs I could have mentioned here, but all in all, The releases of "Best of.." albums in general, don`t think about the "inner circle" of fans, because they are a minority. So these albums will never contain the "pearls" of the artists, only hits... Who hasn`t heard "The Lady In Red" and who has heard "Old-Fashioned People" and "Just in Time"?? Chris once said that he made more music with tempo, than ballads. And of course, the rock songs on this album ,are definitive the best songs, such as " Ship To Shore", " Say Goodbye To It All" and " High On Emotion" What maybe few people know, is that Chris also have songs which questions the way we live, what we accept and about deeper thoughts. On the album " EASTERN WIND" , his song " Wall Of Silence" is an example of that. " The Tower" is about greed, "The Simple Truth" which he made in -88, was used in the campaign for the Kurdish refugees in -91. And who will ever forget these words ".. and I will never know, how men can see the wisdom in a war...Read more ›

Much maligned by the music press over the years - but this selection shows that he has consistently crafted good pop tunes for many years.
