Article de Michael Heatley © Classic Rock (1999)

1972 and still going strong – would deny that 1976’s chart-topping 'Stupidity' was the original quartet's definitive statement. Brilleaux, Wilko, Sparko and the Figure live and in their element were enough to topple the mighty Abba, if only for a week.

These BBC sessions, culled from three In Concert performances (March ‘74, January ‘75 and September'75), are therefore more than second helpings - they're the equivalent of the Holy Grail. With 21 songs crammed into an hour, this is good ol'-fashioned R&B at its brilliant best.

Singer Lee Brilleaux is sadly no longer with us-but Wilko Johnson most certainly is. 'Going Back Home' takes its title from a Feelgood classic, yet all 11 tracks herein are new ; the man rarely coasts on former glories. Yetjust as 'Stupidity' outperformed its studio counterparts, these are songs designed to be heard live, where Wilko's three-piece band really shines. The closing ‘Some Kind Of Hero' has already titled a fanzine and has claims to be an anthem of sorts. File under 'W' for Wilko - or Workmanlike.
