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.

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

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........

Just amazing, I knew lots of Roger because of the Who but only really knew of Wilko from Dr. Feelgood and then I saw him with Ian Dury on a Whistle Test. I just love this album, its really amazing and at the time of writing this review its at number 30 in the album charts (11.08.2014). I'm taking a leap of faith with a lot of music I am buying lately, know little or nothing of the artist but buying anyway and finding out I LOVE IT.

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.

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.
