Save This House is a 1990 album by Spirit of the West.
It was the band's first album for Warner Music Canada, and their first with Linda McRae. Although still a relatively traditional folk album, its release on a major label meant that it was the band's first album to expand their fan base significantly beyond the folk music scene. The title track, an energetically percussive environmental anthem, was a notable hit for the band on campus radio. However, despite earning a platinum record, the album was not a mainstream commercial breakthrough; the band would achieve that with its next album, 1991's Go Figure.
The album's best-known song, however, is "Home for a Rest". While never a mainstream chart hit for the band, it has become by far their most famous song. Its joyous Pogues-like rhythm and lyrics about a drinking spree have made it an enduring frosh week anthem at Canadian colleges and universities. In 2005, "Home for a Rest" was also named the 22nd greatest Canadian song of all time on CBC Radio One's 50 Tracks: The Canadian Version.
The band toured Canada and Great Britain in support of this album. Their British tour was as a supporting act for The Wonder Stuff.
