HOME Pause For A Hoarse Horse/Home SPV (2007)

This 2-on-1 set features the first two albums by Home, a prog rock band who formed circa 1970 and signed to CBS.

The 1971 debut is on the gentle side, in places nodding at American country rock; think Byrds, Poco and Stephen Stills, although 'Bad Days' features some guitar work. 'Tramp' and 'Family' are good tracks too, but there is a feeling that the music really isn't going to go anywhere.

Some good fills, the odd good melody, but not much else.

'Dreamer' opens the 1972 set 'Home' and is instantly more British while retaining the tightness, avoiding the excesses. A nod at The Groundhogs. There's as much folk as country in the prog rock here, 'Rise Up' being almost whimsical.

Nice, but not amazing, although a good package. The band did go onto bigger and better things though.

After two more albums (One never released), guitarist Laurie Wisefield went onto Wishbone Ash, bassist Cliff Williams to Bandit then AC/DC and drummer Mick Cook to The Groundhogs.

Interesting but OK, but an important part of rock history.
