Echo Bridge

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Robin Platts
Released in 1995, Echo Bridge was Colin Blunstone's first album of all-new material since 1979's Late Nights in Soho. The intervening years had seen Blunstone focusing on singles and re-recording his best-known work on Colin Blunstone Sings His Greatest Hits.

The album also features several songwriting contributions from Nik Kershaw, best known for his early-'80s hit "Wouldn't It Be Good." The highlight of Echo Bridge is the gorgeous acoustic number "If I Said," which proves that Blunstone's voice is best heard with minimal instrumental backing. Overall, the album is not as strong as Blunstone's best solo work, probably due to the lack of his own compositional contributions he co-wrote just one of the album's tracks. Originally released by Permanent Records in Britain, the album was thwarted by the fact that the ironically named label went under shortly after its release. Echo Bridge was subsequently issued in the U.S. by Renaissance Records.
