Chris Rea - The Platinum Collection (2006) Retail CD
Another year, another Chris Rea collection CD. It's utterly rediculous that they keep on releasing Chris Rea compilation albums. This is now the 5th in 18 years. And this one is only slightly recommendable because it features some great unkown (to non-Rea fans) tracks.
Included are some of his 80's stuff which is now acceptable to market because the 80's sound is slowly coming back into fashion. So very 80's tracks like "I Don't Know What It Is But I Love It," don't sound too out of place like they would have when Rea was more popular in the 90's.
As a committed Rea fan myself I have themore… albums from which these new tracks come from, and my advice is buy the albums (which you can nowadays dirt cheap). Wired To The Moon is a great song but also a great album, and Water Sign (the album) has 2 tracks from it on this album - but they're not the 2 best from that album. I wish more people could hear "Nothing's Happening By The Sea," which is one of Rea's best songs. "Things Lovers Should Do," is from one of his very early albums from the late 70's, and again it's a strange choice to include here because it doesn't seem to fit into any kind of linear listening experience compare to the earlier Best Of albums.
I don't know why they made this collection, there's nothing particularly 'platinum' about it. If they wanted to release some less well known Rea stuff to go with the well known tracks (half of which are reprised for the umpteenth time here), they should have done so. Instead this is a half hearted attempt to sell some well known, and some rarely heard, songs.
If you do buy this CD and like the rare stuff, buy the albums those songs came from because most feature songs that are better.
Songs 5/5. CD = 2/5 (another complete rip-off).
