For Pete Townshend’s second foray away from The Who he teamed up with ex Small Faces / Faces bassist Ronnie Lane for ‘Rough Mix’. Townshend had originally been asked to produce Lane’s next solo project but that turned instead into a collaboration between the two long standing friends. A veritable A-list of musician friends, including Eric Clapton, John Entwistle and Charlie Watts, were drafted in to provide backup. The album featured new material written by Townshend and Lane but only one track, the instrumental title track, was written as a joint effort. Like its predecessor the feel of the album is very un-Wholike, with a gorgeous, mellow, folk like groove. The album, recorded between 1976 and 1977, was released in 1977 and made the top fifty in both the UK and US.

The album features the sublime ‘Heart To Hang Onto’ which Townshend performed at the Ronnie Lane Tribute Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2004.
