Home is the first album by husband-and-wife singers Delaney & Bonnie, released on the Stax label (catalog no. STS-2026). Most of the album was recorded in 1969 at Stax Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, and features many of Stax's house musicians, including Donald "Duck" Dunn, Steve Cropper, Booker T. Jones, and Isaac Hayes.

The album's cover photo shows Delaney and Bonnie with Delaney's grandfather, John Bramlett, in front of the log cabin in Pontotoc, Mississippi where Delaney grew up.

Stax released two singles from the album in the U.S., "It's Been a Long Time Coming" (1969) and "Hard to Say Goodbye" (1970). (The latter was issued to capitalize on the success of Delaney and Bonnie's later recordings for Atco/Atlantic.) "Just Plain Beautiful" b/w "Hard to Say Goodbye" was also issued as a single in the UK in 1969.

Home was re-released by Stax on CD, including several bonus tracks, in 2006. The album's two US single A-sides are also included in the Stax compilation box set The Complete Stax/Volt Soul Singles, Vol. 2 - 1968-71.
