Henry's Dream is the seventh album released by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, in April 1992. This album remains a big favorite amongst Bad Seeds fans, although Nick Cave himself was reportedly unhappy with the production by David Briggs. Briggs preferred a "live-in-the-studio" method he had used with Neil Young. This led to Cave and Mick Harvey re-mixing the album, and ultimately to the Live Seeds recordings, as Cave wanted the songs "done justice."
It was the first album to feature long-standing members Martyn P. Casey (bass) and Conway Savage (piano, organ). The latter is a singer-songwriter in his own right and has contributed distinctive backing vocals to a handful of Bad Seeds songs; here he and Cave deliver a rousing duet in the chorus of "When I First Came to Town."
The album features the tracks "Straight to You" and "I Had a Dream, Joe." The album reached #41 on UK Album Charts upon the original 1992 release. This title is included in wave 3 in the series of reissues of out of print Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds LPs reissued in 2015.
Continuing the creative roll of Tender Prey and The Good Son, Henry's Dream showed the band in fierce and fine fettle once more.
