Album artwork for Safe At Home by International Submarine Band

In 1965, aspiring folk singer Gram Parsons was busy cutting classes at Harvard in order to explore the fertile Cambridge/Boston music scene. There, he met guitarist John Nuese, who urged Parsons to pursue a country rock sound. Enlisting Ian Dunlop on bass and Mickey Gauvin on bass, they began exploring that direction in earnest. Appropriating their name from a classic ''Our Gang'' skit, the International Submarine Band left Boston for New York, eager to find a supportive label for their new sound. After recording two poorly selling singles, the group left New York for Los Angeles, hoping to find success there.Following several false starts and missed opportunities in L.A., Dunlop and Gavin left the group, going on to found the Flying Burrito Brothers. At this point, producer Suzi Jane Hokom, who had seen the band before the breakup, convinced Lee Hazelwood to sign Parsons and Nuese to a contract for Hazelwood's LHI Records. Newly signed, the duo searched for musicians to form a new ISB lineup. Recruiting guitarist Bob Buchanan, drummer Jon Corneal, bassists Joe Osborne and Chris Etheridge, pianist Earl Ball, and steel guitarist Jay Dee Maness, the group began recording Safe at Horne under Hokom's direction in July 1967.A mix of country and rock standards along with four strong Parsons-penned songs.In the wake of Parsons' recognition as a country rock pioneer, Safe at Home grew in stature considerably. Discovered by fans lucky enough to find an original copy, the album was rightfully acknowledged as a classic. This reissue was sourced from the original analog LHI tapes, this MONO edition includes an unreleased track from the original sessions, the Marty Roberts/Guy Mitchell hit ''Knee Deep in the Blues.
