It’s been more than 30 years since Tony Christie released his last album. On November 6, the Yorkshire born “King of Retro-Cool” will be releasing his new album, Simply In Love, on the Gut Records label. Dedicated to Sue, his wife of almost 40 years, as a gesture of true love on the eve of their 40th wedding anniversary, Simply In Love is a superb collection of classic love songs.
Tony released his first U.K. single, “Life’s Too Good To Waste,” back in 1966, but it didn’t have much success on the U.K. charts. It wasn’t until the single, “I Did What I Did For Maria,” which topped the charts at #2 in 1971, that Tony found stardom in Britain and Europe. It was the re-release of his single “Is This The Way To Amarillo” as the theme for the 2005 Comic Relief charity that placed Tony Christie back into the public consciousness. The song spent seven weeks in the top spot on U.K. charts.
