CD Review: Mortimer - On Our Way Home (RPM)
Fabled in Beatles refence books for many decades, American band Mortimer’s 1969 album, On Our Way Home, shelved after the demise of both The Beatles and subsequently their label, Apple Records, finally gets a release on RPM Records
Headlined by Lennon & McCartney’s On Our Way Home (AKA Two of Us) the album features much in the way of sunny acoustic pop and thought provoking lyrics. Stand out tracks include People Who Are Different and No Business Being Here.
A precursor of material harmony groups such as Crosby, Stills and Nash and Stealers Wheel would produce only a few years after this album was made, On Our Way Home is the musical equivalent of buried treasure.
Now is the time for people to finally hear this lost classic.
