Fun, Campy, Bluesy, and, well, Cher,
By A Customer
This review is from: Take Me Home (Audio CD)
This album was an inspired "comeback" for Cher when it was originally released by Casablanca in the late 70's. The title song was a major hit, and has aged better than expected. The rest of the album is a grab bag of styles -- from the bluesy "Guitar Groupie" to the country "It's Too Late to Love Me Know". Other highlights include the very personal "My Song (Too Far Gone)" and the hard-to-listen-with-a-straight-face "Wasn't It Good". If only the company who re-released this hadn't added two earlier Cher songs ("You Better Sit Down Kids" and "Bang Bang") -- good songs, but they don't really fit with the rest of this album. And one added delight: the original cover artwork -- campy, strange, cool. The "Casablanca Years" album contains all the original songs from "Take Me Home" plus all the songs from "Prisoner", so that is actually a better buy, but if you want the original artwork, this is the one.
