Chris Rea / Era 1: Rarities 1978-1984

Chris Rea / ERA 1 (As, Bs and Rarities 1978-1984)

3CD early years package

ERA 1 (As, Bs and Rarities 1978-1984) is a new Chris Rea rarities compilation that brings together his early work in a triple-CD package.

The set starts with an edited version of Rea’s first big hit ‘Fool (If You Think It’s Over)’ from his 1978 debut solo album Whatever Happened to Benny Santini? and then works its way through B-sides, foreign language variants and different mixes.

Chris Rea issued six studio album during this period including 1984’s Wired To The Moon from which the artwork for this new compilation is derived.

It’s worth pointing out that CD 2 of this set features last year’s Rhino-exclusive One Fine Day album in its entirety. So if you are kicking yourself for not having acquired that, then this is good news.

ERA 1 (As, Bs and Rarities 1978 – 1984) will be released on 20 November 2020 (was 6 November). A series of 2CD ‘Rea-issues’ were released last year.
