TAKE ME HOME
Home was Cher's first album of 1979, and was also her first album
released by Casablanca Records. The record was produced by Bob Esty
and Ron Dante, and most of the lyrics were written by Michele Aller
and Bob Esty. This marked the beginning of Cher's brief venture into
Disco music. Much to Cher's chagrin, she was pressured into
recording an album of this genre. From the album, came a major
comeback hit, "Take Me Home". Cher contributed a self-penned song
about her failed marriage to Gregg Allman on the closing ballad "My
Song (Too Far Gone)". This album is dedicated to "Butterfly".
the album, Cher recorded a music video, for the lead single, "Take
Me Home". The video was aired in an exclusive show called "Cher...
and Other Fantasies". She also performed "Take me Home" along with
the album tracks "Love & Pain" and "Happy Was The Day We Met" on The
Mike Douglas Show.
Cher made her first solo tour, The "Take Me Home Tour". The tour was highly successful and two dates of the show were recorded for broadcast, in Monte Carlo and at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas..
