Wilko Johnson Announces Autobiography and New Album
The label name was reactivated for Going Back Home, his 2014 album with Roger Daltrey, recorded while he believed he had just months to live - before a revolutionary medical procedure saved his life.
He'll recount that and many other experiences in Don't You Leave Me Here: My Life, which arrives on May 26 via Little, Brown, and follows previous volume Looking Back At Me.
The publishers say: "His calm, philosophical response made him even more beloved and admired. And then the strangest thing happened: he didn't die. Don't You Leave Me Here is the story of his life in music, his life with cancer, and his life now - in the future he never thought he would see."
Then on May 27, the double-disc The First Time I Met The Blues: Essential Chess Masters will be released, containing material by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddly, Chuck Berry and others. Read more here.
