Album Review

This CD combines two of Cher's disco albums, 1979's Take Me Home and 1980's Prisoner, on one compact disc. Although these are certinaly not among her best albums, it's a nice way for serious fans to acquire both albums on CD.

Customer Reviews

Take Her Home

This compilation contains the entire contents of Cher's two Casablanca albums; "Take Me Home" and "Prisoner". "Take Me Home" starts off with a suite of disco songs produced by Bob Esty (who had previously worked as an arranger for Donna Summer), the title track became a club and radio hit but the other three songs are just as good. The remaining tracks from "Take Me Home" aren't as consistent. "Prisoner" (also produced by Esty) is more consistent throughout. Not specifically a disco album, "Prisoner" does contain several danceable tunes including the rollerdisco song "Hell On Wheels". The only things lacking here are Cher's contribution to the "Foxes" soundtrack (a Casablanca release) "Bad Love" which would have fit in very well here and the original "Take Me Home" cover artwork - Cher as a what can only be described as a disco valkyrie. Beware of the far inferior reissue of "Take Me Home" also available, it contains the single edits of some tracks and includes several earlier Cher hits which don't fit in stylistically with this album, this is the version of "Take Me Home" to get.

Git Down.. on the Dance Floor

Two of cher's best albums ever recorded.. right after the mess with Warner Bros. Prisoner is highly under rated.. I can't tell you how many times i've danced at 3 am to Hell On Wheels and had complaints from the neighbors.. This compilation features two complete albums.. and its't the only set to have the REAL versions to these songs..

"Holy Smoke" Indeed ...

Half of this album is from Cher's previous disco record, "Take Me Home". But the rest comes direct from, "Prisoner", her 2nd record from the Cassablanca label. Almost all of the songs from, "Take Me Home", are worth purchase and the album as a whole is successful because of its energy, funk, emotion, and strong vocals from the world-recognized voice of the artist.But songs like, Shoppin', Holy Smoke, and Mirror Image all fall short as poorly written songs making them seem very cheesy (here in '07, but as well as in the late '70s I can imagine). Cher does her very best to belt these tunes out with boldness and flare, allowing them to be somewhat passable, but as a whole this CD, "The Cassablanca Years", is NOT a must have for anyone who is not a Cher fan.

Biography

Cher has had three careers that place her indelibly in the public consciousness, and two have been in association with her then-husband, composer/producer/singer Salvatore "Sonny" Bono (b. February 16, 1935, d. January 8, 1998). She charted major hit records in the 1960s and 1970s, working in idioms ranging from early-'60s girl group-style ballads to Jackie Deshannon folk-influenced pop, to adult contemporary pop in the manner of later Dusty Springfield. She also embarked on an acting career, initially...
