A ppearing in mid-album, “Take The Long Way Home” served as Breakfast’s mid-life assessment. I couldn’t tell you whether the song is autobiographical, but it’s written from the perspective of a rock and roll star whose real life is falling apart. Very Kinksian in its self-effacing presentation of the rock & roll star (shades of Soap Opera). The promo (which I own) features an edited version where about a half-minute each is shaved from the intro and outro, plus the original long version. Despite the missing minute, the edited version doesn’t lose a thing except unnecessary weight. “Rudy” is a disco epic that dates back from Crime of the Century.
