Don''t let the minimal package here fool you...Printed in 1998 ''The Blue Planet'' was intentionally released with as little paper packaging content as possible. So you won''t see a fancy book or CD insert graphic but then again, you won''t pay for it either!

The Blue Planet is a collection of pieces that present a common thread of expression using lyrical songs as well as instrumentals. This expression of David''s ability to create a mood or image with his words and music is another interesting extension of the over-used category for "folk" and "acoustic". Listening to this work you will again be able to travel both backwards and forwards through the history of popular music.
DIGITAL NOTE: "The Blue Planet" tracks combined lead all other DE discs online for digital downloads (iTunes, Napster, etc.). What''s the catch? There must be something about the ambient qualities of these tracks that makes sense to the online community of listeners. Hoy Hoy.
"This cd is wonderful, and i don''t listen to this type of music, but it really reached out to me. I felt moved by the words, and calmed by the music, and that is what I listen to music for. David Elias, you have a new fan!!!!!" - Tiffanie
"An ironic piece - mellow in style, but a strong indictment against those who would ravage the earth." - Eco-Music
"The Blue Planet CD EP unfolds as a kind of prayer for our planet Earth, featuring two vocal tracks and several quiet meditative instrumental piano/keyboards tracks. The title track notes the beauty of Earth while questioning our relentless quest to destroy it with pollution, war, etc: "And you took the bluest of them all and put it on a path where water falls. And you took the greenest of the green and put it under one canopy. And you put the globe that burns on high, put it far enough to warm my eyes ..." Extraordinary!" - Riff Gibson, Raging Smolder
"Wonderful melody. One of your best David. And the lyrics are as always the most purest of poetry!! And you used all of my favorite instruments on this track [The Blue Planet]. Lovely arrangment, harmonies I mean come on... you''re killing me here!!!! I don''t know how it is possible but every song you write it is as if God has kept your muse to himself for a time, and then allows you to release your muse to the rest of of us mortals. This goes on my radio station as of right now!!!" - Guy Michetti, Mix Review Crew
"Brilliant. Essential...David Elias could sing the dictionary and we''d all be rapt in attention, hanging on each softly delivered syllable... " -- Raging Smolder Review
"Hey, man...your review is posted on https://www.tradebit.com I have to say, I loved it -- all of it...." -- e-mail from Les Reynolds, https://www.tradebit.com reviewer
"Whatever happens, promise that you''ll play here forever..." - George Cattermole, San Gregorio General Store
