Chris De Burgh - This Way Up This Way Up
Pop Used - LP 540 233 A&M
Almost Impossible To Find On Vinyl. 1994 UK Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Appears Unplayed. “An Art Rocker Who Occasionally Writes Pop-Oriented Material, Chris De Burgh Has Never Been As Popular In His Native Britain Or The United States As He Was In Other Areas Of The World. In America, He's Only Managed Two Top 40 Hits -- 1983's "Don't Pay The Ferryman" (Number 34) And The Number Three Ballad "The Lady In Red" (1986). In Britain, He's Had The Same Number Of Top 40 Singles -- "The Lady In Red" Was A Number One Hit And "Missing You" Peaked At Number Three -- Yet He's Had A Number Of Minor Hits. Nevertheless, He Has Gained Astounding Popularity In Other Countries, Particularly Norway And Brazil.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
Chris De Burgh - The Getaway The Getaway
Pop New - LP SP 1929 AM
Sealed 1982 Original With Custom Song Hype On The Shrink Wrap. “The Getaway Gave Chris De Burgh His First Charted Single With "Don't Pay The Ferryman," Which Peaked At Number 34 In 1983. A Feverishly Fast-Paced Tune, It Contained Vibrant Keyboards And Had De Burgh Powerfully Barking Out The Chorus In One Of His Most Intense Offerings. As His Most Spirited Single Up To That Point, It Proved That He Could Easily Dish Out A Charging Rock Song That Still Harbored His Enchanting Brand Of Lyrics And Mystery. Other Songs Carry This Surging Flow As Well, Like The Flighty Tempo Of "The Getaway," Kept Together By Its Pop/Rock Stride, Or The Determination Aching From De Burgh's Voice Throughout "Ship To Shore," Which Proves He Can Muster Up Some Energy With Barely Any Effort. De Burgh Creates A Tropical Ambience With The Calming Flow Of "Living In The Island" And Returns To His Charming Form With "Crying And Laughing." The Getaway Is Made Up Of Mostly Edgier Tunes From De Burgh This Time Around, Which Is A Delightful Transition From His Usually Mellow Offerings. Although The Odd Love Song Creeps Up Here And There, They Don't Seem To Tarnish The Admirable Course Of The Album.” Mike DeGagne, All Music Guide.... more details
Chris De Burgh - Spanish Train And Other Stories Spanish Train And Other Stories
Pop Audiophile - LP SPJ 4568 CBS Mastersound
Sealed, Rare 1981 Half Speed Master. LP Pressed In Japan. "Chris De Burgh's Storytelling Prowess Comes Into Fruition On Spanish Train And Other Stories As He Carefully Grasps The Listener's Attention With His Soft-Spoken Candor. With Songs That Are Reminiscent Of Tales Told To A Young Child By His Bedside, De Burgh Captivates His Audience With His Serene Anecdotes That Are Enhanced By The Music That Envelops Him. The Opening "Spanish Train" Is A Mysterious Yarn About A Poker Game Between God And The Devil, Where The Victor Inherits The Soul Of A Dying Train Engineer. De Burgh's Vocal Escalation From Serene To Flamboyant Makes This One Of His Best Songs, As Does The Marvelous Twist At The End Of The Story. "A Spaceman Came Travelling" Has De Burgh Blanketing His Wispy Voice In A Tale About The Birth Of Jesus, Only His Version Substitutes The Star Of Bethlehem For An Alien Visitor Who Has Arrived To Reveal A Startling Message. With "Patricia The Stripper," De Burgh Proves That His Sense Of Humor Has Not Escaped Him, As The Baroque Melody And Playful Banter Make This Tune One Of His Most Spirited. Both Musically Appealing And Lyrically Thought-Provoking, It Is This Style Of Narrative That Causes Spanish Train To Be One Of His Best Albums. Even The Forlorn Tone Of The Piano In "Lonely Sky" Invokes Sadness And Melancholy With Perfection, Coupled With De Burgh's Vacant Air. All The Songs On Spanish Train Capture De Burgh's Flair For Singing Elegant Pieces That Are Sincerely Attractive, All The While Illustrating His Pliable Vocal Stylishness."
