What at first seems like an odd alliance makes the most sense when you realise that Mick Green and the Pirates were the common denominator, shaping Wilko's guitar style and steering The Who towards its powerful approach with rhythm and lead guitars lines flowing seamlessly in and out of one another.

There are no prizes for innovation for the music on this album, but what a celebration of a classic style of R&B and a showcase for Wilko's song writing. The energy that powers many of these tracks is stunning and puts many a young band to shame. Wilko drives them along hard without letting up and Daltrey's puts in the best vocals that he's recorded in years. If only Pete Townshend could write something new to get him this fired up. In fact, the vocals are very reminiscent of the old High Numbers days when Daltrey tried his best to sound like a gruff and growling bluesman, now it comes naturally, but with an added power that defies his years.

This is good time music with old school excitement and urgency about it and it will put a smile on your face. It's all about having a good time and it's plain that the musicians had that in spades when they recorded the tracks. I hope that this album puts a smile on Wilko's face that even his rotten illness can't wipe off. This deserves to be a best selling album.

PS (2 May) I've just heard that Wilko has undergone a radical surgery to remove his tumour, which could give him a serious shot at survival - fingers crossed for him.

A confession - I've never been a big fan of Daltrey's voice. I admire him rather than love him and have always found his style a tad one dimensional compared to some of the other iconic rock vocalists (the ultimate perhaps being Mr Percy Plant). In this setting, though, it really works. Not quite the glorious menace of Mr Brilleaux, but still a gruff, raw R&B joy, Daltrey responding brilliantly to the backing of the indefatigable, inexhaustible, irresistible Wilko. The only thing that would top this is a Volume 2, recorded in about a year's time, with Wilco still going strong. And then a Volume 3, 4, 5........

I have to say although I like Dr Feelgood and The Who I wouldn't have bought this album. But having read a review in classic rock mag giving it 9 out of ten I thought well it's only a fiver lets give it a try. Well I'm glad I did. It's brilliant can't stop playing it. All the songs are Wilco's that he wrote for Feelgood with the exception of a Dylan cover which I'd never heard before. Every track is full of great Wilco guitar licks and sassy harmonica which I love. But the bonus on this album is Daltery. He sings Wilco's songs like a man reinvented. The Who were never like this. It's a piece of Rock n Roll and Harmonica heaven. Short but full of toe tapping tracks. Even the ballad Turned 21 a song about lost youth is good. I recommend this album if you like Feelgood but even if you don't give it a try you'll be pleasantly surprised

“Going Back Home” was supposed to be a farewell album from Wilko after he was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. His plans were to do one final tour then spend his last days recording an album's worth of songs with Roger Daltrey. One revolutionary surgery later and, thankfully, Johnson is still alive, cancer free, so we end up with a win-win situation: a superb, career-defining album and the great guitarist still with us. Facing losing such an excellent musician, Wilko has enjoyed perhaps the most attention he has ever received and, instead of the general public realising what a talent he was after he is gone, he remains alive and well and now, it seems, a lot more appreciated than he was before. Of course, it is a pity that it took his battle with cancer to have his talent put in the spotlight, but it is evident that he has won a lot more fans because of his heightened profile and, also, the way he dealt with his illness.

If you like good old fashioned rhythm and blues, then “Going Back Home” will be like a breath of fresh air to you. It is a piece of work jam packed full of spiky, incisive riffs, Daltrey's gruff, bluesy delivery and some top notch musicianship from a fine band comprising of Blockheads Norman Watt-Roy (Bass) and Dylan Dowe (Drums), Style Council founder and current Dexy's member Mick Talbot (Piano/Organ) and Steve Weston (Harmonica). It is a massively enjoyable affair, a deeply life-affirming, joyful collection of songs and a rip-roaring listen from beginning to end; a superb good old-fashioned blues rock album without pretension. Although it's all pretty much great, I do have a handful of personal favourites.

Format: Audio CD
In 2010 Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson found themselves sitting together at an awards ceremony. After talking about their love for old-style British R&B, the pair resolved to record an album together. And after Wilko was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2013, he decided make the most of the time he had left and so Going Back Home was born.

Of the eleven tracks on the album, ten are drawn from Wilko's back catalogue, the eleventh is a cover of Bob Dylan's 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window'.

There's nothing particularly subtle about Going Back Home, Daltrey growls his way through a selection of classics from the Wilko songbook - such as 'Everybody's Carrying a Gun', 'Sneaking Suspicion' and 'Keep It Out of Sight' whilst former Blockheads Norman Watt-Roy and Dylan Howe, from Wilko's live band, as well as Mick Talbot and Steve Weston provide solid backup.

In summary, Going Back Home is a good record of British R&B that brings the career of a British music maverick to a decent end. Well worth a listen.
