Considered by Pete Townshend to be his first ‘real’ solo album ‘Empty Glass’ was also to become his most commercially successful. Whereas ‘Who Came First’ was a devotional album and ‘Rough Mix’ a collaboration, Townshend had no such restrictions on this 1980 release. Coming after Keith Moon’s death the album sees Townshend at his most emotional and rawest as he publicly acknowledges his own addictions and exorcises his demons.

The album was written while Townshend was also trying to write new material for The Who and complaints were raised in some circles that he was keeping the best material for his solo work. The album certainly contains songs that would have worked for the band (a version of the title track was actually recorded by The Who) but the personal investment in the material by the composer shines through. The album spawned three singles including the top ten US smash ‘Let My Love Open The Door’ as well as ‘Empty Glass’ and ‘A Little Is Enough’.
