Take Me Home?

"«CASABLANCA YEARS» is the right CD to buy if you're after the original tracks, featured in their proper & original length. Note that this album includes the short versions of the classics «Take Me Home», "Wasn't It Good", "Happy Was The Day We Met" & "Say The Word".
The first two tracks really don't belong on this album «Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) & «You Better Sit Down Kids»."
Fun, Campy, Bluesy, and, well, Cher

"This album was an inspired "comeback" for Cher when it was originally released by Casablanca in the late 70's. The title song was a major hit, and has aged better than expected. The rest of the album is a grab bag of styles -- from the bluesy "Guitar Groupie" to the country "It's Too Late to Love Me Know". Other highlights include the very personal "My Song (Too Far Gone)" and the hard-to-listen-with-a-straight-face "Wasn't It Good". If only the company who re-released this hadn't added two earlier Cher songs ("You Better Sit Down Kids" and "Bang Bang") -- good songs, but they don't really fit with the rest of this album. And one added delight: the original cover artwork -- campy, strange, cool. The "Casablanca Years" album contains all the original songs from "Take Me Home" plus all the songs from "Prisoner", so that is actually a better buy, but if you want the original artwork, this is the one."

"a travisty to say the least. How can anyone take such a "classic" song and butcher it up, and then sell a cd that containes almost no originals songs from the original album. The songs included in this cd are awful. I can only hope that a "new" original recording is done. I felt cheated when I bought this cd, hoping to find such great songs as "wasn't it good" and "happy was the day we met" "say the word" all in there full length versions. Even the greatest hits has a cut version of "take me home". What is going on here!"
