Rea in his best form
on 29 April 2003
This is one of my favourite chris rea albums, though i have to say i wasn't taken with it immediately. I listened to it a lot last summer- it is a summer album with some great lazy tunes and rhythms particularly in All summer long and Mississippi.
The title track is good, but there are better ones. Guitar street is a reworking of the same song found on the Chris rea album. Its is very moving, and with waiting for a blue sky , forms the best two tracks. the latter one is a jazzy masterpiece that builds up to a great ending.
The weaker songs include Sandwriting and tamatave but they are still easy to listen to in the right mood.
This album is preferble in the summer months , on the beach and with the album from 1986 On the beach. You can't go wrong here.
