Given the inconsistencies concerning the dates in which Robin Hood is thought to have lived, Chris tells his version of the legend as if it were many years after Robin’s death, in the setting of a candle-lit tavern where a small audience has gathered to hear it conveyed by a Story Teller and enacted by his musicians, actors and singers. Chris de Burgh was signed to A&M Records for many years (1974–2004), but he now has his own label, Ferryman Productions. His recent albums are released by German label, Edel Records. There are some flying tunes with the likes of "Fire On The Water", "The Ballroom Of Romance" and "Say Goodbye To It all", although there is an air of repetition that appears at times, particularly if one notes that "The Spirit Of Man" and "One Word (Straight To The Heart)", which are both fine songs in their own right, have choruses similar enough to suggest De Burgh might have, by this stage, been struggling a bit to keep things fresh. a b c "Discographie von Chris de Burgh".
