Take Me Home, Country Roads

Album 1972 Message

German release.

Album: A Message From The People, ABC/Tangerine 755, April 1972.
Single (B): ABC 11344, January 1973, b/w Every Saturday Night.

Recorded at RPM International in Los Angeles in 1972.

Ray Charles filling in second and third voices and adding some superb howls (but who is that saying “me too!” at 1:59?).
The musicians remained uncredited (but Carol Kaye was on bass; follow the link to the album to see a list of other identified session musicians).

In the live version The Raelettes did an excellent job.
