First Solo Album In 26 Years On Limited Edition 180g Blue Vinyl Import LP!
Featuring Guitar by Pete Townshend!
Includes Songs Written by Nick Cave, Stevie Wonder & Stephen Stills!
As Long As I Have You (2018) was produced by Dave Eringa, best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and on Roger and Wilko Johnson's album Going Back Home',and features Pete Townshend's inimitable guitar on seven tracks as well as guest performances from Mick Talbot on keyboards (Dexys, The Style Council) and Sean Genockey on lead guitar (who has worked with Suede, Shame and The Proclaimers).
Work on As Long As I Have You was started shortly after the top 5 gold selling Going Back Home was released and continued during breaks on The Who's record breaking 50th anniversary tour, 'The Who Hits 50'.
The album is a mixture of self-penned tracks such as "Certified Rose" and the soulful ballad "Always Heading Home" along with songs that have inspired Daltrey over the years including Nick Cave's "Into My Arms", "You Haven't Done Nothing" by Stevie Wonder, Stephen Stills' "How Far" and the title track originally recorded by Garnet Mimms in 1964; the year that Daltrey, Townshend, Entwistle and Moon changed their name from The High Numbers and became The Who.
Like Going Back Home before it, As Long as I Have You benefits from Daltrey's diminished range, as it adds gravity and grit to his interpretation. This album also benefits from its tight backing band, which is graced with a swinging horn section but distinguished by Townshend playing a secondary, sympathetic role to Daltrey, helping to give this muscular, occasionally moving record an air of grace.
