Beautiful Dreams is singer/songwriter Chris de Burgh's twelfth original album, released in 1995. It is a collection of his older songs re-recorded with a full orchestra as well as a few new songs and covers.
"In Love Forever", "I'm Not Crying Over You" and "One More Mile to Go" were three new songs written for this album.
"Girl" is missing on compact cassette.
"This is the album I've always wanted to make; a live studio recording of personal favourites, old classics and new songs, with full orchestra and choir. It was recorded in London over a period of eight days (instead of the usual three-four months) in July '95, and to sing each track surrounded by an orchestra, without the benefit of the safety-net of modern technology, was immensely exciting - everything in one take, the way it used to be!"
