I had never heard of Pat Metheny. I was feeling David Bowie's "China Girls" and when the track "This Is Not America" came out, I went and brought this album hoping to hear some even fatter tracks from David Bowie. I'll never forget walking down S. King Dr on the south side of Chicago, and putting in my walkman the soundtrack. When "Psalms 121" came on I was in a trance! To this day, I have no idea how far I walked on that hot summer day of 1988 but I kept turning that tape over and over again, thus was my introduction to Pat Metheny. I am a huge fan of his and was fortunate enough to see him in Chicago during the "We Live Here" tour. There he actually performed for the first time "This Is Not America" and it was an unforgetful, AWESOME show.
