I feel compelled to weigh in because the absurdly low average reviews of this outstanding album.
Head, Hands, and Feet are a relatively new discovery for me. Yes, it was tracking down Albert Lee material that led me here, and Lee is an outstanding part of this band. But there is a LOT more to this band that Lee's virtuosity. Colton's songwriting is particularly underrated. This is one of the most underappreciated bands all around, and reading the other reviews here leads me to think that they are underappreciated even among their fans, many of whom are simply looking for an Albert Lee guitar showcase. But that's a wholly inadequate standard for judging a band or an album.
First, the All Music review says that HHF were a kind of British version of Flying Burrito Brothers or Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and those strike me odd parallels. HHF has some country twang here and there, but is much more of a rock hybrid than those two. Better comparisons are early Poco and Stephen Stills' Manassas, although HHF is doing its own thing.
Having spent some time with Home From Home, the self-titled HHF, Tracks, and Old Soldiers Never Die; Home From Home in my opinion is the best HHF album OVERALL. There is not a bad song on it. It is not, as one reviewer suggest, predominantly ballads -- 4 out of the 11 songs are slowish -- but the album is the most well rounded and balanced of the HHF albums. None of the songs flirt with the schmaltz of "Look at the World It's Changing" or "I Wish You Knew Me", or the instrumental indulgence of "Country Boy" on the self-titled HHF -- songs I tend to skip. There is plenty of funky rocking groove to go around here: Bring it All Back Home, Achmed, Precious Stone, Windy and Warm, Can You See Me. It's true that one wishes for more Lee, but the musicianship here is outstanding all around, so it's very hard for me to complain. The songwriting is excellent. Artistically, it is ambitious (you can tell that Colton was hanging out with the pre-Yes crowd) without being over-the-top. This is not, as another reviewer says, merely "showing the seeds of promise," but a real mature effort.
I suspect this album suffers from the very unfortunate decision not to release it, which leads people to suppose it was somehow half-baked. Colton says the decision was made because the band make-up changed right after recording, and they decided to record their first album with the new current band members -- a decision he later regretted since he thought it their best work. (By the way, saying that this album is more Colton is silly. Look at the song credits for HHF throughout -- HHF is predominantly a Colton band from start to finish.)
In short, this is a lost gem. HHF availability is sadly limited. Don't be shy about starting here.
