Chris de Burgh - Guitar Solos and riffs

Think that all Chris de Burgh songs are smoochie and soft ballads? Think Again!
Yes I admit he has recorded his fair share of that genre, however read on to discover some of the amazing rock guitar solos and riffs that have been recorded on Chris de Burgh tracks throughout the years.
As an ex lead guitar player myself I feel it only right to start with what I regard as the creme de la creme first.

 


In 1982 the album 'The Getaway was recorded at the Farmyard Studios in England. The final track on this album is a trilogy of songs called 'The Revolution,' 'Light A Fire' and 'Liberty'.
On lead guitar for this was Canadian freelance guitar player - Tim Wynveen. Tim who is now a successful author living in Toronto recorded this amazing 32 second solo-

How would a solo like this sound played live? Well,put it in the hands of the incredible Canadian Guitarist and CdeB band member for many years - Danny McBride, and you get this sensational 30 second version from the 1990 Album 'High On Emotion Live From Dublin'.

Other classic examples of Tim Wynveen's riffs and guitar work can be heard in the last minute of the title track to the 'Eastern Wind' album recorded in Canada 1980-

1986 saw the release of arguably the best CdeB album ever - 'Into The Light'. The use of session guitarists Phil Palmer and Danny McBride together with a determination to release a powerful album gave this classic a unique rock sound.
The final track, and in my opinion the finest CdeB track ever, was another trilogy entitled - 'The Leader', 'The Vision', 'What About Me'.

Chris de Burgh album - The Love Songs
Phil Palmer's contribution to Chris de Burgh guitar solos continues to this day. In 1997 he was given the task of finishing off the last 1 minute 20 seconds to the 'Love Songs' track - 'It's Me, (And I'm Ready To Go)'. His contribution did indeed turn out to be memorable. Here is a 30 second sample of that guitar solo from 1997.

More recent examples of Phil Palmer's guitar work can be heard on the 2002 album - 'Timing Is Everything' like the 10 second solo contribution to the song 'There's Room In This Heart Tonight'.
