So….let’s forget about politics for a few minutes and get back to music. Today’s Album of the Week post wraps up my series on Dan Fogelberg and represents your last chance to help him get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Home Free, released in 1972, was Dan Fogelberg’s first album. Although it was not a hit when first released, it has since been certified platinum. I personally think Home Free is one of the very best initial releases by any of the singer/songwriters from the early 1970s.
I wanted to do something a little different with this album so I scoured the internet to find early performances of as many of the Home Free songs as possible. These live performances, along with some of actual Home Free album tracks, provide you with an interesting view of a young artist at the very beginning of his career. Good stuff. Let’s listen…..
To The Morning – 1973
Stars – 1974
More Than Ever (album track)
Be On Your Way (album track)
Looking For A Lady/Hickory Grove – 1971
Long Way Home (album track)
Anyway I Love You/Let Me Go – 1971
Wisteria (album track)
The River (album track)
So….do you agree with me that Dan belongs in the Hall of Fame. If so, sign the petition at the following link.
