As per the original BM design, the Special is equipped with six white-capped slider switches controlling individual pickup on/off and phase reversal, providing a vast range of tonal variations. Audacious commission” hits the nail on the head, I might even add “expansive”—given the license offered to the builders, complete freedom around a unifying theme. For each of the albums were studied their history and characteristics, and for the recording process and sessions in the studio were procured and used equipments which was used at the specific time, and the studio itself was set up in the way to best-possibly convey the sound of rooms of the previous times. As you'd expect, this guitar is available in red (Antique Cherry) just like Brian's own guitar but there are other options if you hanker for the design and tones but not this colour.

I'd only known of Chris Rea from "Fool If You Think It's Over" from way back in 1978, when I was in high school, and had, to be honest, forgotten about him since then here in the USA.Three pickups may not be that unusual but two sets of switches certainly are (white here, same colour as on Brian's red special); the higher placed set turns the pickup on/off and the lower set is for in/out phase reversal.

It looks nice in the pictures, but ten times better in person; truly the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever owned. Racism and the KKK made the situation even worse, which reflected in the music, instrumentation gradually changed and the lyrics told stories of fear ("KKK Blues"), aimless wandering ("Walkin' Country Blues"), alcoholism ("Too Much Drinkin'"), but also the flight from prevailing conditions, maybe with another perspective for life and the future in the big cities ("Ticket for Chicago"). He noted that it's not meant to be played in one day, neither songs separately, as far the thread can be followed, but nevertheless it should be enjoyed in the prolonged period of time. The book, slightly smaller than an LP cover, begins after the two pages that hold the first 8 CDs with two large paintings. I used to find the same if I bought more than 1 album at once - my attention would be split and I wouldn't get into either one as much as I might have if bought at different times.

I had often thought that it would be neat to get all the great portrait painters together to interpret the same subject and then see the differences among them.

As well as fulfilling everything you need on the sound and playability fronts, you have to look the part too. At the time it came out, there were a few harrowing interviews where Chris was thinking this would be the last music he made, due to cancer. Whether it's a bright gloss or smooth satin, maybe a trans coat revealing the wood underneath - your need to love the look of your bass guitar. All in all it was an environment, where it was only natural for the Blues to develop, and even though the instrumentation and the construction of the songs was still very different from what we now know as Blues, the basics were already there: the sadness, the strain, the burdens, the depression, the feeling of "blue" and – of course – the underlying musical structure. Several live exhibitions of the album's artwork paintings were held, like in October 2005 at The Cork Street Gallery, Central London, England, [1] and Spazio Oikos, Milan, Italy.The 75-minute DVD might be especially interesting to those who own the album; there are many interviews with Rea and the Band, a lot of footage from the writing and the recording sessions and a thorough depiction of the process of making an idea become reality. Complete your blue guitar with a matching blue guitar strap or add some colour with a patterned strap, red strap or a green strap.
