oh i see. it's actually one of the most popular classical pieces of the 20th century, and has an interesting history behind it.

check out this arrangement too

George - First saw Chris Rea in 76 or 77 on his 1st tour as support to Lindisfarne. We were so impressed we went to see him 3 nights running at different venues. Ironically, in those early days, he was actually a keyboard player who occasionally played guitar. I think that was the influence of his record company who also wanted him to perform under the name of 'Benny Santini' (hence the title of his first album). I guess they thought he had a better chance as a piano/singer. After all Elton wasnt doing too badly. Interesting that this first Rea album was produced by Gus Dudgeon who was Elton's producer as well.

I lost interest in Rea when Road to Hell and Auberge came out, but have bought some of his Blues material which is pretty good. Also went to see him in 2008 when he did a bizarre auto-biographical 3 part concert about the career of a young guitarist from the early 60's to the present day. Didnt work - although he did play Josephine !!

Whatever happened to Benny Santini http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH2QFou6uGs&feature=related

Fool if you think its over http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3myI0IJmTlQ&feature=related


However, his most astonishing album is called Blues Guitars which is 11 CD's of all new material with each CD being a different kind of Blues. Its only about $US50, but Ive never got round to buying it !!

They are:-

"Beginnings", "Country Blues"; "Louisiana and New Orleans"; "Electric Memphis Blues"; "Texas Blues"; "Chicago Blues"; "Blues Ballads"; "Gospel Soul Blues and Motown"; "Celtic and Irish Blues"; "Latin Blues" and finally 60's and 70's.
