Chris Rea sings about Xmas

SCAN0099Chris Rea, singer and blues/slide guitarist, has recorded 24 albums, released 70 odd singles and had over 30 UK hits.

He’s also written many memorable songs including “On the Beach” “Stainsbury Girls” and “Road to Hell“. Plus a few songs about Christmas.

This one,  “Winter Song“, was recorded in 1991 and it reached No 27 in the UK charts.

This particular copy of the 7” 45 rpm  vinyl is unusual in that the cover has been produced as an Advent Calendar.

There were two other tracks on the record; “Footprints in the snow” and “Tell me there’s a heaven“, so quite a Christmas/religious theme to this particular release.

Here’s the song taken from Youtube
