Chris Rea at the Hammersmith Apollo
The Hammersmith Apollo is one of the more intimate music venues, and worth making the effort if there is someone playing you (or someone else close to you) like. So, Chris Rea was an obvious choice to hear his trademark voice and overloaded Telecaster sound. It struck me that I first went to the Hammersmith Apollo nigh on thirty years ago to see Barclay James Harvest (who?) and try to record them. Then, I had a massive almost-portable Uher recorder, and just about got a decent bootleg out of it. Tonight, I was carrying a small compact and recorded a track or two with video, hardly thinking about it. Everything changes, everything remains the same.
