WOW! I am blown away!
I found this to be an awsome CD! I have been playing this on, and off since getting it over a month ago. I love, "Remember? the Redeye" the base lines are great. Being a drummer/precussion player, I love the contributions given by both musicians. They are truly great. I have listen enough to understand the music was produced very well, to where all the musicians gave each other space, and it was layered very well. David's voice is truly awesome be it singing, or vocal stylings. This is a rae find, done well ahead of it's time. Thanks guys! You have done an outstanding job!

I've already ordered thrce copies of this fabulous CD for myself and several friends whom I know will love the music. I will UNDOUBTEDLY be ordering a sizeable number of copies of this disc because the Lord has blessed me with many great friends. It's thrilling to know that such a fine album is STILL easily obtainable after 18 years since it's orginal release. Keep up the great work guys and gals AND DAVE BLAMIRES.

At last!
I saw David perform with the PMG on the "We Live Here" DVD of their 1995 Japan concert,and was just knocked out by his contribution to the overall sound, and particularly his world-class voice. On enquiring further, I discovered that he'd made this album a long time ago, but that not only was it very hard to find, when a copy did emerge it was expensive....very expensive! Anyway, all's well that ends well - after many Google attempts, suddenly a website appeared, and via the man himself, I was steered to CD Baby and now have two copies of the album, so I'm very happy indeed. But like all the other reviewers, all I now want to know is when we can buy more of this guy's great music? A fantastic album from a great musician, who if there were any justice in the world, would be as well-known as some of the much less deserving megastars out there. And oh yes, he's from Yorkshire too, which explains a lot!

Superb CD from beginning to end!
David Blamires does a superb job with his wordless vocals (part of that unique PMG sound that made classics such as "Minuano (Six Eight)" so special) and tasteful guitar on this album! The other players also contribute wonderfully with their respective instruments. Two tracks feature lyrics, “Until We Know” and “Free at Last”, and David sings beautifully on both songs. The melodies and instruments are harmonious and elegant, and every single track is a joy to listen to! You’ll want to hit the repeat button over and over, especially on “Remember? The Redeye” and “Tribal Wave”. It’s rare to find an album where you want to hear from beginning to end, without having to skip any tracks. It’s a shame that the local smooth jazz radio station only plays “Deep is the Midnight Sea” because there are so many other great tracks, such as “Three Points on a Star”. This song evokes the senses in such a way that only a PMG tune can give you that emotional high (you Pat Metheny fans know what I’m talking about!). This album will definitely appeal to your senses with its wonderful instruments, tone, atmosphere, and beautiful vocals. I can’t recommend it enough! It's out of print and highly sought after so get your hands on a copy while you can. Definitely looking forward to another recording from the multi-talented Mr. Blamires!

Absolute classic for PMG fans
What a stunning album from start to end. It hardly has aged, it's like any great Pat Metheny albums. It goes on living through the years like a fresh rose. Fantastic musicianship, superb writing and the amazing voice of David Blamires who made the classic albums like Letters from Home, Still life talking what they are, absolute classics. Well David Blamires Group belongs up there. One regret though, that there isn't any other cd's from this truly unique group.

Amazing!
This is an outstanding CD. I listen to it all day at work, and that's why I'm still sane.

FANTASTIC Album
WHEN, OH WHEN is this man ever going to release his new CD. I've been playing my copy of his only CD almost non-stop. It is truly wonderful, soothing music. I saw Dave perform with the Pat Metheny Group in November of 1992 in Pittsburgh, Pa. A superb musician. I read on the internet that Dave is promising us a new CD in 2008. Well, it's about bloody time, man. Good luck.
