Home - Pause for a Hoarse Horse (1971)


The debut album from this British band.

Home was a sextet on this album with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars, violin, keyboards and vocals.

Home released three albums before they were disbanded. Reviews of their two final albums will follow before the end of this year/you can read my reviews of their final two albums somewhere else in this blog.

Home was the first band of the bassist Cliff Williams who later made a substantial career in the hard blues/metal band AC/CD. He retired from that band last year.

The album title Pause For A Hoarse Horse is typical British humour. Nobody else would give an album that title....

The music on Pause For A Hoarse Horse is rock with a lot of folk rock and country'n'western. There is a lot of guitars and keyboards here with some violin, vocal harmonies and lead vocals too.

The music is not that good. It is not good at all. But this forty-four minutes long album has some good stuff. The title track being the good stuff.

This is a decent album from a decent band. It is worth checking out.
