AllMusic Review by

In 2004, Collectables reissued two obscure albums by the New Riders of the Purple Sage that had been out of print for years, Home, Home on the Road and Brujo. Both albums were originally released on Columbia in 1974, with the best material being on the Jerry Garcia-produced live recording Home, Home on the Road, which combined rock & roll favorites such as Ricky Nelson's "Hello Mary Lou," Chuck Berry's "School Days," and the Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers" with NRPS originals "Kick in the Head," "Henry," and "Sutter's Mill." Fans of the Grateful Dead's overt country material will find this a welcome addition to their collections.
