Product Description

A most welcome mid-price reissue of the former Zombies vocalist’s mid-90s album "Echo Bridge". In many ways a favourite album of Colin’s, the record was made on a strict budget over the course of almost three years. It nevertheless contains some fine performances, including a stellar reading of Billy Bragg’s ‘Levi Stubbs’ Tears’. This release boasts new, improved packaging, top-notch remastering and an insightful note from the singer himself.

This album just grows on you and gets under your skin. The sound quality is excellent and desplays Colin's voice at its best. I was initally sad this was not all new material but now I have heard it I am completley happy.

For some time, I pondered the title of Colin's album..."Echo Bridge"? Sounded to my ears at times off the wall a bit..and then I read Colin's insightful notes on the booklet. It all makes sense, and contained within is what Colin Blunstone is known for, making wonderful music. There are many fine musicians and songwriters who are also stellar in their contributions. Colin chose to record some of the finest material that can be found anywhere, and after several listens there is nothing to dislike. All the songs are top rate. track listing:

1)Levy Stubbs' Tears (Billy Bragg)
2)Tearing The Good Things Down (Chris Winter)
3)The Radio Was Playing Johhny Come Lately (Charlie Dore, Terry Britten, Phil Pickett)
4)Everlasting Love (Chris Eaton)
5)What Is Love(Colin Blunstone, Chris Eaton)
6)Oxygen (Nik Kershaw)
7)If I Said (Chris Winter, Hywel Maggs)
8)The Best Is Yet To Come (Clifford T Ward)
9)Breakaway (Benny Gallagher, Graham Lyle)
10)I Want To Say A Prayer (John Capek, Marc Jordan, Steve Kipner).

This album is sure to please the most discrimminating audiophile. Every note is sung, and played with technique and prescision hardly found in most modern music. Thus, this is one of the finest examples of modern music anywhere. Hopefully as with "One Year" and "Ennismore", along with the band that gave Mr. Blunstone his muscal start, The Zombies, discovery and then appreciation for this most wonderful album will continue to grow with passing time. Lets hope! And lets be thankful for all the great music still to come from Colin:)

A True Masterpiece 28 Mar. 2002
By Rick Coley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1982, an artist named Tony Carey emerged onto the music scene at least to the people unaware of the fact he was the keyboardist on a couple of Rainbow albums. The first song released "I Won't Be Home Tonight" released and caught our attention, then if my greying memory serves me right, followed up by "West Coast Summer Nights". If there is one cd that is a true must have for any true music lover its this one. It has stood the hands of time in my collection and always will. Its not a disc that you'd occasionaly play, its the kind of disc you want to play. I've had album version of this, with the spaceship cover and when I finally got a computer and discovered Amazon and Tony Careys disc, it took me no time to place my credit card number on the screen and have my cd copy. This cd deserves a 10, but I've rated the highest possible.

Great First Album 11 Aug. 2011
By bolinfan4life - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You can't go wrong with most of Tony Carey's music. I own about 10 Carey albums and this one (his first solo album) does not disappoint. I have heard that he wrote the title track for a girl group and they ended up not using it, good thing because it rocks! I Won't Be Home Tonight sets the mood and style that would become Tony's trademark, great production, great lyrics, catchy hooks and a memorable chorus. A multi-instrumentalist (played keyboards on Blackmore's Rainbow Rising album) and a great song writer. My favorite cut is his story in a song "Carry Me". A song about the darker side of life and the excess of the 80's. A drug dealer is writing his girl from jail. The word pictures capture the lifestyle and time period prefectly. There are ballads, rockers and feel good music all in one album. Next up for Carey was his Planet P Project and Pink World but this is where it started, and what a way to start!

His Best Solo Album Since His First Three Classics. 18 Oct. 2010
By Carlisle Wheeling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If it weren't for One Year, Ennismore, and Journey, one could easily call Echo Bridge a masterpiece. Well, it's not, but it comes impressively close. There isn't much on here that's not to love and, being one of Colin's newest and biggest fans, I'm certainly not about to tell you it sucks. He is not only always worth listening to, but he also has such incredible taste at picking out songs that are both rich in melodic structure and frought with meaning. His own songs are consistent with his covers, but there aren't too many on this particular outing. This only emphasizes the fact that he knows what's best for his style and his incredible one-of-a-kind voice.

1. "Levi Stubbs' Tears": Well, I guess this Billy Bragg song is an oddball rocker choice as opposed to his usual faire. It's about a woman who suffers domestic violence at the hands of a military husband, but it's also an interesting piece that works surprisingly well in this eclectic mix of--mostly romantic pop--songs.

2. "Tearing the Good Things Down:" A sad social commentary on the way people throw away the things that really matter for the almighty dollar.

3. "The Radio Was Playing Johnny Come Lately:" Another strange rocker ala "Levi Stubbs" about an ill-fated love affair.

4. "Everlasting Love:" Absolutely gorgeous ballad about coming home after a maelstrom of romantic mistakes. I am always hoping this will happen to me, and hearing it always gives me hope.

5. "What is Love?:" Good question. The begging, pleading, and commitment in this song are heartbreaking, but I have recently heard this from someone I'm no longer sure of. The woman in the song wants to go, and I can only think, as I myself do, she has her reasons. Sometimes words and half-kept promises are not enough. The man may very well be sincere, but there are reasons the woman is walking away that he will never be able to understand. You still can't help hoping it works out. The song is so beautiful.

6. "Oxygen:" What a sensual, sexy, and invitingly romantic song. Wow...

7. "If I Said:" Oh, how any woman who's confused would long to hear these words from another man right now: "How could he stand to see you sad? How could he treat a love so bad?"

8. "The Best is Yet to Come:" Something I've heard repeatedly, but a song I've known since 1982 as recorded by soap actress Patty Weaver. This is a great, beautifully sensitive song, and I think Colin's version tops Justin Hayward's, especially with that grand, sweeping piano behind his distinctive voice.

9. "Breakaway:" My favorite song on this album. Great pop sensibilities abounding with rich harmonies, infectious and addictive, you want to hear it over and over again.

10: "Prayer:" Adequately nice closer. Not my favorite, but I appreciate the gospel choral feel of it.

This really is one of Colin's best albums, very personal to me, and I think that if you listen, you will find something in it for you as well. It's hard to ignore an artiste that knows how to touch people and reach the heart on every level. Colin Blunstone always seems to be capable of doing that very thing.

Very good! 11 Mar. 2003
By L. B. Ivarsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tony Carey's "I won't be home tonight" from 1983 was actually released the previous year under the title "Tony Carey" (without the song "I don't care"), but that really doesn't matter. This album is the second best effort (after "Storyville) from the very talented singer/songwriter Tony Carey, who once was a member of Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, where he played keyboard on their classic "Rising".
The songs on "I won't be home tonight" are very melodic and catchy most of the time. Carey has managed to combine hard rockers like the title track "I won't be home tonight" with up tempo AOR inspired tunes in "West coast summer nights". He also gives us groovy and happy songs as "I'd tell the world about her", and beautiful ballads like "Carry my love". This release shows Carey's ability to be musically diverse and interesting, something that later got lost on more monotonous albums where the material has a tendency to melt together in quite a boring way. I highly recommend this album to anyone who's in search for good melodic music, performed by a talented musician with a great voice.
