"Home from Home" does not stand the test of time and is in no way a classic. If you are a Heads, Hands, and Feet collector, then you have, or will want to have, this recording. Do not expect the energy of their other works, for the balance on this early work in more ballads, more Tony Coulton.
Now that is not necessarily all bad, for Coulton is a great vocalist. But tracks like Friend of a Friend and Windy & Warm, for instance, are not going make anyone's compilation CD. On the other hand, Bringing It All on My Own Head showcase the band's vintage harmony and energy. Achmed is a curious little gem. Home from Home ranks up there with Simon and Garfunkle's My Little Town as one of the bleakest depictions of a town on record. Make Me Feel Much Better is trite, and the rest of the tracks may or may not prove engaging.
Still, these early songs show that HH&F were clearly on to something fresh and worthwhile, and this early promise does blossom more in their subsequent efforts.
