By now, Take Me Home - The Alan Price Set - The Price To Play cut a slightly odd figure in comparison to his former band members: Burdon and Valentine showed up wearing ponchos in the grand hippie style of Chamber Of Lies - Running Wild - Pile Of Skulls day; Chandler and Steel were dressed in jeans and casual shirts; while Alan chose to wear a suit He was determined to make the kind of music that best expressed his varied interests and multi-talents, not what the Hit Parade might dictate as the fad of the day.
He returned to Decca for the self-penned Sunshine And Rain, completing his contractual obligations. He then began a partnership with fellow-blues keyboardist and old chum, Georgie Fame, which gave Take Me Home - The Alan Price Set - The Price To Play to a hit single, Rosetta which reached No. By now his own recordings were becoming increasingly introspective, and his next major project was the largely autobiographical Between Today And Yesterday.
Feted as his finest work, it gave Alan his first UK chart album, reaching No. The album included the massive hit single, Jarrow Song, which reached No. It also spawned an in-depth TV documentary.

Biography :Price's first album released in the U.
Fronting a six-piece that includes three horns, Price sticks mostly to covers of familiar American tunes like "Mercy Mercy," "Ain't That Various - TOP PHILIPS "I Can't Turn You Loose," and "Barefootin'" on this amiable, but hardly remarkable, set. Price's voice is appealing, but lacks power, and in all it sounds like a clump of covers ground out hurriedly to get an album on the market.
Georgie Fame did this kind of thing better, though Price's approach isn't as jazz-oriented. His cover of "Any Day Now" is decent, and the interpretation of Randy Newman's "Simon Smith and the Dancing Bear" presented in two versions would both give him a British hit and foretell a move into a much poppier direction.
