Editors’ Notes

Upon learning he had 10 months to live in 2013, Dr. Feelgood’s lead guitarist, Wilko Johnson, went out on a final tour and survived it. Old pal Roger Daltrey invited him into the studio, and for a week Johnson and the Who singer bashed out whatever Johnson had in mind. Dr. Feelgood songs get new treatments here, while Johnson also had a few new originals and a desire to cover Bob Dylan’s “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window.” The sound is focused, with Johnson’s guitar cutting a nasty figure and Daltrey fully aware of his limits but getting the job done nonetheless. Together, they cut through the songs with youthful energy and a veteran’s know-how to get the most from the performances. The Dylan cover rolls past with an ease that finds plenty of space for the drums to pound, the harmonica to scream, and the guitars to blare. It’s a major moment that’s met with moments of equal and even stronger power with “Ice on the Motorway” and “I Keep It to Myself.” The ballad “Turned 21” is haunting, but there aren’t many reflective moments. It’s mostly hard rock played as if they had all the time in the world.

Customer Reviews

Glad they didn't keep this to themselves

This is blistering R&B at it's best. Roger's vocals are as strong as ever. Wilko's original is good, but Roger and this band take this song to a whole new level. Great send off for Wilko!

Hope there is more to come!

I know Wilko is suffering from cancer, but I sure hope he keeps beating and keeps recording and touring.

Roger is great on this album. Very unusual to hear him singing anything other than Who songs or typical substandard solo stuff. Wish he'd hooked up with Wilko earlier!

Nothing fancy, but great straight ahead songs and superb musicianship.

classic stuff

love this …great tunes…. Daltreys voice is so strong .

Best known as the guitarist in Dr. Feelgood, one of British pub rock's greatest bands, Wilko Johnson went on to a long solo career playing the kind of rootsy, R&B-based rock & roll he loved. Born John Wilkinson (which he inverted to come up with his stage name) in 1947, Johnson grew up in the coastal Canvey Island area, and played around the local music scene during the '60s (often in jug bands). He studied at Newcastle University beginning in 1967, but returned home during breaks to keep up his...
