All Music Guide - Brett Hartenbach
Rough Mix, Pete Townshend's 1977 collaboration with former Small Faces and Faces songwriter and bass player Ronnie Lane, combines the loose, rollicking folk-rock of Lane's former band, Slim Chance, with touches of country, folk, and New Orleans rock & roll, along with Townshend's own trademark style. Lane's tunes, especially the beautiful "Annie," possess an understated charm, while Townshend, with songs such as "Misunderstood," the Meher Baba-inspired "Keep Me Turning," and the strange love song "My Baby Gives It Away," delivers some of the best material of his solo career.

    A Stunner!

    An amazing recording-NOT to be missed! Beautiful and haunting with both Pete and Ronnie in fine form. A sadly neglected album (yes, album)when it first appeared. Hopefully, it wil be re-discovered some day. Contains both gentle ballads and witty romps. Pete and Ronnie made a terrific team. Only wish there were more like this one.
