HOME T, one of the most successful groups of the 1980s, is back with a new album and look.

Their latest project, a 16-track set entitled Send Come Call We, was recently released by Reggaeology Music. It is co-produced and arranged by veteran musician Mikey ‘Mao’ Chung and Rudolph ‘Ruddy’ Manning.

“There is a song on this CD to quench every musical thirst. Every song has its own strength and its own sound,” Manning, who is also a member of Home T, told the Jamaica Observer.

A cover of Nina Simone’s My Baby Just Cares For Me; Funky Reggae Party, Full A Shape, I Hear Music, Give Me Your Love and the title track are some of the songs on Send Come Call We, Home T’s first album in eight years.

Orville ‘Bagga’ Case and Leroy Palmer, long-time Home T members, complete the current line-up.

Case, Palmer, Mikey Bennett and Winston ‘Diego’ Tucker were members of what was known as Home T-4 in the late-1970s. The group was formed in 1972.

Renamed Home T in the late-1980s, the quartet had several hits during that period and the early 1990s working with producers Gussie Clarke and Lloyd ‘King Jammys’ James.

Pirate’s Anthem, Don’t Throw it All Away, Who She Love and Holding On were some of their big hits.

Bennett produced Stronger Now, the previous Home T album.
