The Road to Hell is a 1989 album by Chris Rea, and is one of Rea's most famous albums. The second part of the two part title track, "The Road to Hell (Pt. 2)," is also one of Rea's most famous songs. One track, "Texas," has been played through the years on Classic Rock/AOR radio stations in Texas, and is sometimes played as background music before Texas Rangers baseball games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Another track, "Daytona", is about the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 "Daytona", in which he sings about the car metaphorically, with the engine and tyre noise from the car ringing out toward the end of the song.
The iconic album cover features art by the English commercial artist, Adrian Chesterman who was also responsible for creating cover art for, amongst others, Motörhead for their 1979 'Bomber' album.
