Right, now what to say about Home?
I bought this album because a friend of mine (Andy Georgiou) went on and on about how brilliant it was. And, in part, he was right - but it's an inconsistent album musically, in three parts.
The opening track (Dreamer) promises an album of hard electric rock with big harmonies, but then the rest of side 1 is mainly acoustic ballads. Mick Cook told me that 'Rise Up' was nearly used to advertise Cornfakes. Side 2 is another fettle of kish - it's always seemed to me to be a self-contained suite of atmospheric spacey progrock gorgeousness complete with bowed bass guitar.
The first album 'Pause For A Hoarse Horse' is a duff country-rock affair, the third album 'The Alchemist' was the band's favourite but didn't do anything for me - I always though of it as the audio version of the inside cover of Led Zep IV.
Laurie Wisefield went on to join Wishbone Ash, Cliff Williams joined AC/DC, Mick Stubbs (I think) died, and Mick Cook joined the Groundhogs and then cleaned my mum's windows.
