REVIEW
Matthew Horton; Score: 7/10
••   Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey's long-mooted collaboration has been hastened by Johnson's terminal pancreatic cancer – not that 'Going Back Home' is a tranquil trip to the other side. The pair attack a chunky selection of bluesy Wilko originals with gusto, the choppy 'Ice On The Motorway' firing up memories of Johnson veering crazily across the stage in his Dr Feelgood days, and Daltrey growling as fruitily as ever on the harmonica-fuelled title track. There's one cover, an unsubtle holler through Dylan's 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window', but this is no time to be reining anything in anyway. If it's to be Johnson's epitaph, 'Going Back Home' has enough spike and thrust to be a worthy sign-off.

••   "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."
In french:
••   "En janvier 2013, Wilko Johnson, 66 ans, fine gâchette de la six cordes qui fit de Dr Feelgood le géant du pub rock, apprit qu'il était atteint d'un cancer incurable et qu'il ne lui restait plus que dix mois a vivre. Pour seul traitement, il décida de repartir sur la route une derniere fois. Octobre venu, Wilko était toujours la. Roger Daltrey, chanteur des Who, groupe admiré par Johnson, se dit alors qu'il était temps de réaliser un vieux projet, toujours reporté : graver un album ensemble, histoire de sceller leur amour commun pour Johnny Kidd et les Pirates. Et offrir un joli baroud d'honneur en studio au condamné. En quelques prises et une semaine d'enregistrement, les comperes mirent en boîte une poignée de titres de Wilko période Feelgood (All through the city, Sneakin' Suspicion...) ou en solo, ainsi qu'une reprise du Could you please crawl out my window ?, de Dylan.
••   Le résultat n'a rien d'une poussive ou pathétique BA... A meme se demander lequel des deux avait le plus besoin de ce shoot d'adrénaline. Car si Wilko, impérial, dégaine comme au premier jour ses fameux riffs a la mitraillette, Daltrey y retrouve une puissance et un souffle étonnants. Comme si l'esprit du r'n'b « maximum » qui inspira les débuts des Who convenait désormais mieux a sa voix de septuagénaire que le répertoire emphatique composé par un Townshend plus mur. Par moments, Daltrey prend meme des intonations a la Lee Brilleaux... Wilko ne pouvait pas rever plus beau cadeau et, qui sait, plus bel élixir de jouvence. « C'était tellement agréable que ça m'embete presque de mourir maintenant », a-t-il lâché de son humour si britannique. Une belle leçon de vie face a la mort." (source: www.telerama.fr)

REVIEW
By Helen Brown; 2:00 PM GMT, 22 Mar 2014;  Score: ***
••   In the light of Wilko Johnson’s terminal cancer, Roger Daltrey’s roar of “I wanna live!” is an arrestingly painful and exhilarating album-opener. It had a different context when Johnson wrote the song for Dr Feelgood’s second album, Malpractice (1975). The lyric actually runs, “I wanna live/ The way I like”, and, backed by Johnson’s aggressive guitar technique, neatly summarises the band’s bolshie, Essex take on American R&B.
Johnson has said his only regret in life is the way he fell out with Dr Feelgood’s Lee Brilleaux and that the two weren’t reconciled before the singer’s death in 1994. So the Who frontman takes his place on Johnson’s last, ballsy bash through his back catalogue.
••   Compared with the surly Brilleaux, Daltrey projects his voice with the clarity of a stadium rock god. And if the production is too clean, it does at least reveal Johnson in glorious high definition with his Telecaster, simultaneously stabbing the chords while letting the licks bleed out with liquid heat.
