My favourite album of all time: Fist heard this album in the eighties and have loved it ever since; Joys of Chrismas and September blues are my favourite tracks on the album; worth while music to sit back RELAX and ENJOY.

Three bonus tracks in add to lp edition and the best of these is the fine instrumental Danielle s Breakfast, only thing I dislike is the cover but I care about the music and make sure there are high class tunes.
Chris Rea s voice is deep and strong as ever and he is also a nice player of his instruments.
The tracks I most like are the slow and melodic Curse Of The Traveller and the highlight of the album September Blue.
The instrumental moments like Josie s Tune and the intro of Loving You Again are excellent. I knew this album for this beautiful song which closes the Carlo Verdone movie with Ornella Muti Io e mia sorella, Me and my sister, released in 1987 like Dancing With Strangers.

There are moments that define a musical career. For Chris Rea, the first such moment is Dancing With Strangers. Granted that all his albums before this had their own quality, but this was meaner, bluesier and at the same time more commercial.
The opening track, Joys Of Christmas, opens with a haunting yet passionate guitar as Rea proceeds to highlight the misery of Christmas in recession. Windy Town, my favourite track, is equally intense as the singer recalls his past.
Gonna Buy A Hat is a footstomping classic, Curse Of The Traveller a moment that Knopfler would be proud of while Let's Dance rightly achieved chart success as one of 1987's better hits.
Davy Spillane's chilling uillean pipes on Josie's Tune bring images of desert or desolation to mind, while the brilliant Loving You Again cherishes the longivity of a relationship.
September Blue is the moment to wait for. Three minutes of solace, love, beautiful music and depression. It is an art form of its own and no music collection is complete without it.
There isn't a bad track on it.
This album is one of Rea's best and the first signs of genuine blues in his music. I would strongly recommend it to anybody who likes to hear a quality guitarist.
