Description

Chris Rea - Wishing Well Blue Guitars - Celtic & Irish Blues (Disc 9) 2005. Blue Guitars is a Blues album released by Chris Rea on October 14, 2005 consisting of eleven CDs, one DVD and a full colour book, including paintings by the artist, liner notes and song lyrics. The album is an ambitious project with the 137 songs recorded over the course of 1½ years with a work schedule - according to Chris Rea himself - of twelve hours a day, seven days a week. Initially the project was inspired by Bill Wyman's "Blues Odyssey" and can be called an "odyssey" in its own right, for depicting a journey through the various epochs of Blues Music, starting at its African origins and finishing with modern-time Blues from the 60s and 70s. Subsequently the eleven CDs are titled the following: "Beginnings", "Country Blues", "Louisiana & New Orleans", "Electric Memphis Blues", "Texas Blues", "Chicago Blues", "Blues Ballads", "Gospel Soul Blues & Motown", "Celtic & Irish Blues", "Latin Blues" and "60s & 70s". The collection is the fifth and last release in a line of Blues recordings Chris Rea has made since recovering from a serious disease at the turn of the millennium and promising himself a return to his Bluesy roots in the event that he survived. Album Number Nine - Celtic & Irish Blues The Blues went in yet another direction, when it started to mingle with Celtic and Scottish/Irish influences, forming still another hybrid. The general feeling of sadness, loss and blues, which is inherent in the Scottish, Irish and Celtic roots anyway, together with an all new instrumentation could lay the basis for a different kind of approach, giving the Blues the typical Celtic feel. Tracklist: " Celtic Blue (Celtic And Irish Blues) - 8.11 " Too Far From Home - 7.28 " 'Til The Morning Sun Shines On My Love And Me - 5.39 " Lucky Day - 5.16 " What She Really Is - 5.03 " Wishing Well - 4.11 " Irish Blues - 4.14 " No More Sorrow - 6.05 " While I Remain - 5.30 " Last Drink - 5.17 " 'Til I Find My True Love's Name - 3.42 " Big White Door - 5.36 There's a dream that has no ending There's a love that cannot be There's a ghost without the chains of love Who will never ever be free And gather round the rich man Their own souls to sell Down in the darkness Of the wishing well There's a way to find peace That nobody cares to own The sacrifice that's needed May be way to close to home There's a charter of freedom Where the last soldier fell All in the darkness Of the wishing well There's a whisper of light Way above their desires While they sit in the dark And dream of bright skies What they wanted so bad Don't exist in it's place The idea of changing Is too hard to face Down in the darkness Of the wishing well So they sit at the bottom And they gaze with sad eyes That grow larger than envy Til they split at the sides And they sleep in the mess Of the last soul that fell Down in the darkness Oh, down in the darkness Of the wishing well ...
