Pete Townshend: Empty Glass (Day 22 of Album: 365 Mkll)

(Connection to previous album: Simon Phillips played drums on Jeff Beck's 'There and Back'. He also played drums on 'Empty Glass'.)

This is a great Pete record.  You can hear some later Who sounds on this album but that isn't unusual since Pete was pretty much the only songwriter for the band.  The Who went the way of Pete.  

3 of Pete's solo singles are on here along with 'Gonna Get Ya' which is a song I remember hearing as a kid enough to remember the end chorus vocal melody but I can't remember why I would have heard it.  My parents didn't have the album, my aunts didn't but maybe they did  because that would have been the only way I would have heard the last track.  I don't believe it was a single. 

The whole record is great and was a joy to listen to again. 

Songs: 3.5 Ds

Performance: 3.0 Ds

Influence: 3.25 Ds

Overall: 3.25 D's
