JDIZZY's 365 # 238: Giving It All Away

Giving It All Away - Roger Daltrey (1973)

This song exists because Roger Daltrey is a music fan. He met a young Leo Sayer while the future star was recording at Daltrey's home studio. Roger liked the music so much, that he asked if he could record an album's worth of the material. Leo agreed, and the rest is history: Daltrey's solo career began and Leo Sayer's star began to rise. Daltrey's recordings are often overlooked and harshly critiqued, but there are many diamonds nestled in his seventies releases, as well as a few in the eighties and nineties. C'mon now, would one of the best voices in rock really release nothing worthwhile?
