Carry Me Home

Carry Me Home was the last track on side A of the Dixie-Narco e.p. released by Primal Scream in 1992, after the album Screamadelica the previous year. In one of those coincidences I notice that The Vinyl Villain has posted the entire e.p. today, but I'm going to plough on with this post regardless, as it was already part written. Written by Beach Boy Dennis Wilson as an anti-Vietnam war song, Carry Me Home is a masterpiece, cited by producer Andrew Weatherall at one point as the best piece of work he'd done. The production and arrangement is stunning and it features one of Bobby Gillespie's best vocals. If you get on over to The Vinyl Villain you can also get the song Screamadelica, an eleven minute acid house/rock/sample tour-de-force.
