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.

Amazon.co.uk Review

A fine introduction to de Burgh's own inimitable, hopelessly romantic (some might say maudlin), windswept musical style--and more comprehensive than Best Moves. Songs like the overly dramatic "Don't Pay The Ferryman" and tear-streaked "Missing You" have had many a starry-eyed fan weeping in her boudoir. Then there's 1986's million-selling "The Lady In Red"... a song that came 10 years too late to inspire punk, but certainly would've done given the chance. Note there are two versions of this collection--the German and English. The UK one is slightly superior, containing as it does de Burgh¹s epic tale of playing cards against the Devil, 1976's "Spanish Train". The title of the final track says it all: "High On Emotion"; this is music for emotion junkies. --Everett True

Format: Audio CD
i bought the us/canada release of this for my dad's birthday i was expecting it to be some old crap that i wouldnt like but when he played it i was blown away by the amazing songs on it and how powerful they effect you, i can remember i was about 12 and he played "patrica the stripper" and i used to sing a long word by word, but my favourite song ever by him was " don't pay the ferryman" its totally a rock ballad and has such power and its an addictive song it always reminds me of me n my dad singing along in the car *memories*, if anyone hasnt bought it yet i suggest you do because it's worth more than what you pay for it!

Format: Audio CD
This compilation was originally released in 1989 to capitalise on De Burgh's 'second wind' following the runaway success of "The Lady In Red" three years earlier. As a direct result, it concentrates mainly on his more commercial sounding 1980s work - drawing its tracks mainly from the triumverate of albums "The Getaway" (1982), "Man On The Line" (1984) and "Into The Light" (1986). Of all his 1970s material, only "Spanish Train" and "A Spaceman Came Travelling" get a look in (even then the latter is a re-recorded version - NOT the original album version), so fans looking for any entries from the likes of "Crusader", "Eastern Wind" or "Far Beyond These Castle Walls" will be disappointed. The two original tracks "This Waiting Heart", and "Diamond In The Dark" are largely filler material. A good intro nevertheless to Chris De Burgh's work, although the album is now out of print and there are better C de B compilations out there.

I love this Cd. I had an edition of it and had lost it. Spanish Train is one of my all time favourites. But with all his great hits such as Don't pay the ferry man, The lady in Red, Borderline, Ship to Shore, Missing you and A spaceman came travelling to name but a few, this CD is a must have for all Chris DeBurgh fans.

This is both a wonderful introduction to Chris de Burgh's music and a convenient collection for those who have loved his music for years. The range here is all-encompassing: from the ballads such as "Lady in Red" and "Diamond in the Dark" to the faster and rockier "Don't Pay the Ferryman" and "Say Goodbye to it All". Well worth a listen !

Covers his best songs (from 'Don't pay the ferryman' to 'Lay in red') and most of the recordings seem good quality.
