This release was out of print for a long time - I had it on vinyl and the original CD version was going for over $50 on eBay. Now it's back and sporting 6 bonus tracks.
Let me be upfront and honest: Heyward's "North of a Miracle" is not only my favorite Heyward release, it is one of my all-time top ten CD's. "Postcards from Home" is the follow-up release to this classic and, unfortunately, it doesn't quite measure up. That said, there are some excellent songs here among some filler.
1. Move It Up - A nice upbeat album opener.
2. Over the Weekend - Throwback to Nick's Haircut 100 sound.
3. Goodbye Yesterday - A catchy tune, but unlike any of his previous singles.
4. Again in My Heart - filler
5. We've All Been Kissed - filler
6. Pray for a Miracle - Nick tries to go Motown with limited success
7. Now You've Gone - filler
8. Come On Baby Run - Nick tries to go tropical with limited results
9. Teach Till You Reach - Nice tune with a catchy hook. Just ignore the lyrics.
10. Cry Just a Little Bit - Nick tries to go slow reggae and creates something orginal and worthwhile.
The bonus tracks are mostly 12" versions of the above tunes. The final two are great live versions of "Fantastic Day" and "Take That Situation". These two cuts almost make the CD worth its price.
This a good CD, just not a great CD. Kudos to BMG for reissuing this CD with the bonus tracks. If you are new to Nick Heyward, please check out "North of a Miracle." If you already enjoy Nick and Haircut 100, then you'll enjoy this pop CD.

Excellent followup to North of a Miracle. A real talent. Listen to the 12" Mixes and you get a real sense that he is up there with likes of Spandau Ballet. For example list to Warning Sign. An excellent complement to North of a Miracle and Haircut's first album.

I have to admit I didn't initially take a liking to this album. However, once I got a second or third listen to all the songs, I really, really dig them. The album has a bit of everything, from poppy, to soulful/reggae-like sounds, to soft, nostalgic ballad songs, all wrapped in one album. My favorites are Now You've Gone, We've All Been Kissed, and a poignant-sounding version of Over the Weekend (I really like this version better than the original).

A follow up to North of a Miracle is a tough thing to do...after several stand alone singles Nick released Postcards in '86. I'm pretty confused as to why 80's Nick fans are slamming this record...This LP screams mid-80's to me...uber slick pop... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Nick H. is a master songwriter and Postcards features this. The whole LP is a very pleasant if toned down affair compared to North...I have to admit it took me awhile to embrace Postcards when I had my friend bring back the LP from Germany for me years ago...as I get older it gets better...every song is a winner...from hard poppy pop to reggae back beat mellow songs this LP has it all....check it out...
