BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!
Originally I posted this one in September, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!
“Take Me Home” is the name of a song written by producers Bob Esty and Michele Aller. The song was originally recorded by Cher.
“Take Me Home” was originally recorded by American singer and actress, Cher. The song was released as a single in 1979 and became Cher’s first top ten single in the United States in five years, since “Dark Lady” in 1974. It would be her last for almost another decade, until “I Found Someone” in late 1987. “Take Me Home” hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, #21 on the Hot Soul Singles chart and #2 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The single also charted in Canada and Norway, peaking at #10 and #9 respectively. In 1979, the RIAA awarded Cher with a Gold certification for the album for sales of over 500,000, and a Gold certification for the single for sales of over 1,000,000.
The b-side “Wasn’t It Good” was released as the second single from Cher’s 1979 album Take Me Home. Wasn’t It Good was officially released in the United States, but in places such as the United Kingdom and Canada the song was only released a promo. The song did enter the Billboard Hot 100, however it was not as successful as its predecessor. The song became a minor hit peaking at number forty-nine.
