4.0 out of 5 stars Johnson and Daltrey go home, 24 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Going Back Home (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.

Out Among the Stars
Going Back Home

These two reviews appear to 'mysteriously' manage to elbow their way back to the top of the reviews quite a lot. This seems to happen overnight at the same time as your fellow reviewers receive negative votes coincidently.

Somebody is making it 'look like' you are negging your fellow reviewers out of the way to achieve this accomplishment of being the 'top dog' sadly.

Now I am not directly accusing you of stooping so low but I am going to report my findings to Amazon who can hopefully get to the bottom of this and I will let you know what they say in due course. I have indeed reported this type of activity several times now and all have came to a satisfactory conclusion.

For the record, I will vote as unhelpful any reviews I consider to be poorly written or factually inaccurate and vote as helpful any reviews that I consider to be well-written and make interesting points.

On both of the reviews you have highlighted, my reviews have gained more negative votes than most - am I negging my own reviews?

Both have gained more positive votes than most others though, again am I massaging the votes? No, I'm not, but please knock yourself out to prove it.

This is my final post on this subject.
