Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Atlantic's Gold Standard Audiophile Compact Discs are gold-plated CD's that boast 20-bit digital reproduction technology for improved sonic dynamics. Each re-issue comes in a specially designed mini-box which includes the jewel CD box plus a 24 page color booklet featuring new liner notes, photographs, and the complete original album artwork.
  • Personnel: Pete Townshend (vocals, guitar, synthesizer); Pete Hope-Evans (harmonica); Rabbit Bundrick (keyboards); Tony Butler (bass); Mark Brzezicki, Kenney Jones, Simon Phillips, John Asher (drums).
  • Includes liner notes by Dave Marsh. Originally released on Atco (32100).
  • Digitally remastered by Ted Jensen (Sterling Sound, New York, New York).
  • Who mastermind Pete Townshend's strongest solo record was born in a hailstorm of despair, uncertainty, and tribulation. With the once viscerally powerful Who in limbo, the guitarist nearly sunk himself into brandy-drenched oblivion. He emerged with one of his most gripping solo pieces and--perhaps unsurprisingly--the most Who-like album of all his solo work.
  • Pete plunges into his familiar themes of aging, sexuality, and spiritual decay with fervor, desperation, and commitment. And while EMPTY GLASS does not approach the roaring physicality of the Who at its best, the emotional punch of "Jools and Jim" and "I Am an Animal" is sure to rattle the cage of even the most ardent hard rock devotee. Also of note are Townshend's vocals. Through the entire album, whether on the radio-ready paean to Meher Baba "Let My Love Open the Door," the bracing "Rough Boys," or the sublime "A Little Is Enough," his vocals are hanging on the edge of a cliff, presumably dangling over a certain death.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - Ranked #57 in Rolling Stone's "100 Best Albums Of The 80's."

CMJ (1/5/04, p.6) - Ranked #18 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1980".

Mojo (Publisher) (p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The songs are so hard and strong they made the band jealous and Townshend's singing lets rip the harsh energy Roger Daltrey gave voice to in The Who."
