Kenny Loggins
Celebrate Me Home

Our Price: $299.99

  • The best copy to ever hit the site and boy is it killer -- Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • Both sides here are rich, full and Tubey Magical with a massive bottom end and lots of space around the instruments
  • It's also one of the only Loggins solo albums that I've ever liked; it was actually a favorite of mine back in the day
  • Allmusic 4 Stars: "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."
