Album Description
Available in:
Take Me Home is the 15th studio album by American singer-actress Cher, released on January 25, 1979 by Casablanca Records. The RIAA certified it Gold on May 17, 1979.

Take Me 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 songs 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".

Sales of the album may have been boosted by the image of a scantily clad Cher in a Viking outfit on the album’s cover, which received a lot of attention at the time. "Take Me Home" was also the first album to have three tracks mixed: "Take Me Home" (12" Mix), "Wasn't it Good" (12" Mix) and "Git Down (Guitar Grupie)" (12" Mix) available in the "Hell on Wheels" single. Gene Simmons, her boyfriend at the time, received a credit on the album owing to his presence on the track "Git Down (Guitar Grupie)".

Take Me Home has been released on CD together with her second Casablanca Records album, Prisoner, numerous times in a CD entitled The Casablanca Years. This CD unites all the tracks from both albums, merging them onto one single CD. The album was released in 1993 and rereleased in 1996 with a different cover.

To promote 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.
