Welcome Home is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Carole King, originally released in May 1978 by Capitol Records.

Carole King is the most successful female songwriter of the 20th century, having written or co-written 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1955 and 1999. She also wrote 61 hits that charted in the UK, making her the most successful female songwriter on the UK singles charts between 1952 and 2005. Carole King has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be honored this way.

 

After seven straight gold-selling, Top 20 albums, Welcome Home fared poorly from a commercial standpoint failing to rise above #104 on the US Billboard album charts.

The opener, “Main Street Saturday Night”, typifies the album’s ultra-mild sound. The single, “Morning Sun”, threatened to make an impact on the Adult Contemporary chart, but stalled at number 43. “Disco Tech” is a slick dance tune that stands out as a goofy guilty pleasure – that’s right Carole King does disco.

The title track "Welcome Home" is the album’s strongest moment, with its understated harmonies and soaring chorus, and "Venusian Diamond" is a magnificent Beatle-esque song.

This was an emotional time for Carole as her husband Rick Evers, who co-wrote some of the lyrics on the album, died, shortly after this album was recorded.

Check out the tracks: “Morning Sun”; "Welcome Home" and “Main Street Saturday Night”. 

This LP record is a Music On Vinyl reissue (March 2017) on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve with 4 page booklet and featuring remastered audio, pressed in Europe.
