The thirteen songs on this early Best Of collection take us from Rea’s 1978 debut to the Dancing With Strangers album. New Light has since been superceded by The Best Of Chris Rea, which also includes material from Auberge and The Road To Hell. This selection, however, is in some ways preferable, since the songs all exhibit the looser performing style of his earlier years and their mix of soul, classic rock and MOR schmaltz sit together more naturally. Like his fellow Northeastener Robert Palmer, Chris Rea is hard to pigeonhole: if not a great guitarist he is at least very gifted, with a warm style that borrows from Keith Richards and Eric Clapton. Apart from the timeless “Fool (If You Think It’s Over)”, his songs tend towards the derivative, but his voice is rich and charming enough for this not to matter. Lyrically, he is always honest and unpretentious, and his evocations of his Middlesborough childhood, in “Windy Town” and “Steel River”, are genuine urban romance. Rea has few real competitors in the art of the corny love song, and “Josephine” still runs away with the prizes. New Light is best heard by candlelight with a glass of red wine-throughout, it is beautifully produced, intelligent and exceedingly mellow. –James Swift
