Broken Home was formed in 1979 by Dicken and Pete Crowther both formerly of Mr Big. Mr Big had broken up the year before when EMI decided not to release their third album 'Seppuku' (although it was finally released by Angel Air in 2001).

With Rory Willson and Pete Barnacle they attracted the attention of one Robert John (Mutt) Lange who agreed to produce their upcoming debut album (his credits included Boomtown Rats, AC/DC and Graham Parker). They were ready to roll and by the end of 1979 Dicken had written about a dozen songs. During the early months of 1980 they started working on the album under Mutt Lange's guidance.

The resulting album was well received on the Continent (especially Norway and Germany) when it was released in June 1980. The band made numerous live appearances to support the album including an appearance (their last ever) at Reading Festival. Shortly afterward, Rory and then Pete Barnacle left and Broken Home were no more.

This CD is a must for fans of Mr Big and the work of Mutt Lange. The 12 page booklet features informative notes and unseen photos from Dickens' personal archive.
