In mei 1973 kwam Roger’s eerste soloplaat uit, “Daltrey”. Ultimate Classic Rock kijkt terug op dit album, met achtergrondinformatie.
“Today, on its 40th anniversary, the album doesn’t sound all that much like a misguided letdown. It’s more like a flawed stab at branching out. For the most part, Sayer’s musical touches are inspired, and the performances are tight (Jimmy Page even shows up for one song). But it’s not a big record. Or an operatic one. Or even one that rocks, in the traditional sense. It’s essentially a break from the Who“.
