Wilko Johnson ‎– "Ice On The Motorway" (Fresh Records ‎– FRESH LP4) 1980

Wilko's first Solo album was this one, bedecked with classic Wilko pose, and a few Wilko classics;
"Bottle Up and Go", "Down By The Waterside" and a ferocious "The Whommy" (Previously heard on "The R&B Sessions-Live at the Hope and Anchor" album).
Delight in those razor sharp Telecaster chops,and some unpretentious Rock'n'Roll from one of the greats.

Tracklist:

Bottle Up And Go 1:39
Cairo Blues 3:45
Down By The Waterside 3:46
Ice On The Motorway 2:48
Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window 3:45
Leave My Woman Alone 2:51
When I'm Gone 5:41
All Right 3:00
Keep It Out Of Sight 2:40
Long Tall Texan 2:44
The Whammy 4:31

Thank you so much for this, and all the Wilko.Dr. Feelgood/Tyla Gang/etc stuff.

Loved this album when it first came out and still listen to it regularly. So much to enjoy ... "Long Tall Texan" was fun, "The Whammy" was mega, and "Please Crawl Out Your Window" was Dylan as I wanted him to sound! Wonderful stuff! This album really needs a CD re-issue with the 7" single tracks included!
