Editorial Reviews

Wilko Johnson, legendary guitarist with Dr Feelgood, and Roger Daltrey, lead singer of rock giants The Who are to release a joint album GOING BACK HOME on the world famous Chess label which has been resurrected specifically for this record. The album features 11 tracks, ten of which are Wilko originals from both his Dr Feelgood days and solo years, whilst the sole cover on the album is a version of Bob Dylan's HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED classic 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window'. The album also includes the track 'Turned 21' which has never been properly released or performed live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two maestros at the top of their game. April 8, 2014
By Who Fan
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic! There are 11 tracks and the whole thing comes in at 35 minutes - each track is a tight, back-to-the-classic-single length. If you like Roger's growly, mature bluesman voice, there's plenty of that, combined with Wilko's tight, percussive blues-rock guitar and some wailing harmonica. It really does sound like Roger and Wilko have gone back in a time machine to capture the essence of a gig at London's famous Marquee Club!

The tracks that differ to this style are the Dylan cover 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window', which to my ear sounds like Roger's most 'Who style' voice on the album (even though the backing sounds Dylan-esque) and 'Turned 21' a lovely slower track in which Roger uses his 'ballad' voice and sounds like it could come from one of his early solo albums.

The album does sound a bit 'rushed' for obvious reasons (in case you don't know, Wilko has terminal cancer) but that only adds to its magic - it sounds like the days of getting a group into a studio and cutting an album in double-quick time, full of fizzing energy and FUN! If you were being mean-spirited, you could say some of the songs sound samey because of the hurried track choice, but I'd argue that it sounds thematic - like they found a great groove they both liked and stuck with it.

I'm in the UK and I've listened to this over and over again since buying it on release. It never gets old - there's not a dud track on the album. I've bought copies for my brother and brother-in-law and I've also bought the vinyl album. This is an album to get evangelistic about! If this does prove to be Wilko's last album (and I truly hope it won't), he and Roger have turned out a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracker from Wilko and Roger April 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is a cracking album, I think. It's good, solid British R&B (in the old sense) with two geniuses of the genre on fine form. Seeing The Who at Charlton in 1974 and Dr Feelgood (twice) at close range in the Cambridge Corn Exchange around the same time remain among the great musical experiences of my life even 40 years on, and while Wilko, Daltrey and I are all old gits now, it's good to see that at least two out of the three of us have still got the old magic.

There is a mix of old Dr Feelgood songs, Wilko's own stuff and one Dylan cover in Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window. I think it's a joy from start to finish. They open with Going Back Home which Daltrey delivers (brilliantly) with a Brilleaux-esque growl way down in his throat (Wilko bends a string and that's all she wrote, of course) but it's recognisably his own take on it. Later in a fantastic Keep It Out Of Sight he really goes for the full Daltrey singing an octave above Brilleaux and, as Pete Townshend once memorably said of Love Reign O'er Me, Roger gives it his b*ll*cks. It's just great stuff all the way through.

Wilko is...well, Wilko. Brilliant, distinctive and perhaps slightly more solid and less bonkers than of old, he chops and hits that great beat like a teenager and in my mind he's still staring like a madman and moving around the stage as though he's on casters. Just perfect. The two of them and a very, very good band produce something really good here. Anyone with any interest in this type of music will love this and fans certainly won't be disappointed. This may well be Wilko's swan song and the decision to close the album with All Through The City is inspired.

If this is Wilko's last album it is one he can be proud of. Thanks for this, and for everything, Wilko. Go well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing April 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is amazing. A blend of blues/r&b/boogie/rock that won't let you stop moving with beat somehow.
If you don't, you must be dead.
Enjoyable from start to finish.
Roger's voice is fantastic with these songs. It is great to hear him in a range that works for him.
I have never hear of Wilko until the news of his health.
His playing is so key to what these songs are. His guitar is everywhere, yet not dominating the tunes.
It is a shame a CD of this caliber will go unnoticed by the masses and fade away.....
So, do yourself a favor and BUY IT. Then tell your friends to have a listen.
I can't Keep It To Myself.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic April 14, 2014
By Lovblad
Format:Audio CD
This is match made in heaven. At a first glance it was maybe normal that these two working-class lads would get along. BUt the results are even better than expected. Everybody knows by now that Wilko has cancer and somehow found a way to become even more productive. The combination works surprisingly well since also because: Daltrey was never hat good outside The Who (one may even say that his solo albums were horrible) and Wilko while being Wilko was not a great singer. I remember still liking Wilko's first solo albums when they came out but unfortunately his singing for in the way of his magnificent guitar playing. Here, the guitars are recorded like they never have and one instantly recognizes wilko's typical way of playing and he hits those chords even harder than he has previously. Daltrey's voice is a bit rougher but in better shape then expected and he proves to be a distinguished frontman for Wilko. They provide superb renditions of Ice on the Motorway as well as Sneakin' Suspicion, which even improve on the originals. The first single that came out did not impress me at all but it is a superb album. It shows that Daltrey is a man with the heart in the right place and that Wilko is one of the real guitar greats.
