Overview

Freed from Loggins & Messina, Kenny Loggins retreats from that duo's folky conceits, turning to smooth, smooth soft rock, filled with leisurely paces, lush strings and electric pianos and easy attitude -- so it's no surprise when you discover this is a co-production by Billy Joel's chief collaborator Phil Ramone and Bob James. There is a bit of surprise that this album doesn't really have any big hits to its credit, especially since Loggins would later have several Top Ten records, but this is a consistent record, maintaining its mellow mood even when the tempo picks up for the relatively insistent "I Believe in Love." Loggins is in good form throughout the record, and if even only the title track entered his readily-acknowledged canon, this has a fine, sustained mood: a soft late '70s vibe that makes it a nice artifact of its time, as well as one of his stronger records, as illustrated by its platinum status -- something it achieved without any blockbuster singles.

It is truly amazing, that after all these years I still love to listen to Celebrate Me Home. I picked up the album when it first came out (and I do mean vinyl ALBUM) which should pretty much date me. I love it just as much now as I did then, which is amazing because most music is so dated after a number of years and loses it's initial impact. Not Celebrate Me Home. It is as fresh and enjoyable now as it ever was.

I still have the album, which tells you how much I love these songs. You'll enjoy it tremendously. Every song is great. Such a fabulous trip back in time - in fact a much gentler time - that will trigger wonderful memories for you. Kenny Loggins is such a talent and I've enjoyed his music over the years.
