They say his chances could not have been better All the promise of a July sun in the morning sky Laughing at the peering faces From the windows of a limousine Caviar with the A & R and still only in his teens So whatever happened? I can see him now, his face lit up in neon One hand up in the air as he turns towards the crowd His songs of silver arrows they tried to roll into gold With diamond tips from painted lips Designed and ready to be sold

Though he had already cut a single, "So Much Love," for Magnet Records in 1975, this was Chris Rea's first full-length album. While "So Much Love" had basically disappeared quickly upon its release, the song "Fool (If You Think It's Over)" from Whatever Happened to Benny Santini? became his largest hit, especially in the . where it was nominated for a Grammy (though it didn't win). Often the hit song from an album is not the best. In this case, though, it is. The rest of the album is somewhat mediocre, with too-polished production

He mockingly proposed "Benjamin Santini," a name that would appeal to Jewish and Italian listeners - a big slice of the American market. At least one executive at Magnet took it seriously, telling him it was a good idea. Rea kept his real name but came up with a backstory for Benny Santini, a promising young pop star packaged for stardom
