Release Notes:

In February 2005, with most of this album already in
the can (and incidentally shortly after complaining
of feeling unwell during a radio interview), Edwyn
Collins was rushed to hospital. Having suffered not
one but two cerebral haemorrhages, he was so close
to death that his wife was advised to gather his
loved ones. Somehow he pulled through.

Although in physical rehabilitation – he can’t yet
play his guitar – he can operate a mixing desk, and
this understandably overdue, almost posthumous album
is the result.

If the worst had happened you can be reasonably sure
that Home Again would have been released in some
form, doubtless billed as the last work of one of
the nation’s quietly influential talents. Collins
has often been too smart to succeed. He started by
leading the genuinely original Orange Juice, the
band that kick-started Glasgow’s fecund music scene
and that pioneered a sound only properly assimilatd
by the main-stream two decades later. Then there was
a patchy, sometimes glorious, solo career. (Even his
one huge smash, A Girl Like You, in 1994 seems to
reward the close listener with a hidden chant of
“it’s a hit!”.) So the 48-year old Collins has
effectively reedited his own obituary, and just in

It would have been a fine parting shot, though. The
opener, One is a Lonely Number, is a perfect example
of the bass-heavy white soul that Collins mastered
as long ago as What Presence?, Orange Juice’s 1984
classic non-hit single (a recurring theme, that).
The first single, You’ll Never Know, is even better
– yet another attempt to pay respects to soul greats
such as Al Green and Curtis Mayfield, a quixotic
task that goes all the way back to Orange Juice’s
endearingly sincere version of Green’s L.O.V.E.,
another great miss.

The bluesy 7th Son, displaying some gorgeous slide
guitar, and the amusing Liberteenage Rag (very 2005,
that title) typify Collins’s offhand wit, while the
light rockabilly of Superstar and the jaunty, catchy
One Track Mind are not a million miles from that
other classy middle-aged crooner and skilled
guitarist Richard Hawley.

But the interest lies in songs such as the title
track, a homage to his Highland family background,
the lovely, weary ballad Written in Stone and the
foreboding, folky Leviathan. Inescapably, they now
seem touched with premonition and prove genuinely
touching. But this is a fine record on any terms,
and a reminder not to take what we have for granted.
