Spark to a flame

After Metallica, this album is a pale comparison. But it does contain some nice gems. It is a Best of compilation, but it was the first album I heard of Chris de Burgh. I had my Chris de Burgh time around the end of the eighties, I confess.

The album might have been only there to make some more money out of The lady in red, Chris’ hit from a couple of years earlier. The lady in red is both the most hated love song around and something everybody wants to hear on weddings.

There are some nice gems on this record, as I said. The songs Borderline and Say goodbye to it all tell a shared story, but were originally not on the same album. Other nice songs include Missing you and Tender hands. But maybe it is because I know the album well.
