Background: Released in 1988, New Light Through Old Windows was the first compilation album by Chris Rea.
The album reached #5 on the UK charts and #92 on the U.S. album chart.
New Light Through Old Windows is a significant baker’s dozen of Chris Rea’s early material, leading up to but not including work from his Road to Hell album. Rea’s stature was always larger in the United Kingdom than in the U.S., with his only American Top 40 single coming from the newer version of “Fool (If You Think It’s Over),” a re-release of the same song which failed to garner any attention the first time around. Rea’s soothing voice is indeed attractive, and the songs that are included on this set are wisely chosen examples of his smooth style.
