One of the Boys is the third studio solo album by the Who's lead vocalist, Roger Daltrey. It was first released in 1977, on Polydor in the UK, and MCA in the US. The sessions were recorded at the Who's Ramport Studios during the winter of 1976 (vocals were recorded at Pathe Marconi Studios in Paris, due to tax complications), and Daltrey allowed students from the local Battersea technical school to film them as an educational project

Roger Daltrey called on a wider circle of friends for his third album and came up with a more varied collection of songs, from Steve Gibbons' raucous title track to ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone's country-styled "Single Man's Dilemma. Daltrey also co-wrote three songs with producers David Courtney and Tony Meehan, and Beatle completists should note that Paul McCartney contributed a new song, "Giddy.

Unfortunately, Daltrey's solo albums never fared as well, partly because he wasn't singing songs by a certain Mr. Townshend. But "One of the Boys" is a welcome exception. I recently purchased this on vinyl, partly because I used to have the original and partly because. I admit it - I like this album cover. When one listens to an album like 'Ride a Rock Horse' or (so I've heard) 'Parting Should Be Painless,' one can wonder just why Roger wanted a solo career in the first place. He just doesn't fit the profile of a bandmember who wants or needs a solo career, since he didn't have a unique musical message and wasn't having his contributions routinely ignored by the more prominent bandmembers. But when one listens to a nice album like this, it becomes obvious that under the right circumstances, Roger could be quite effective as a solo artist.

Roger has also cultivated a singing career outside of The Who, beginning in 1973 when he found himself on the BBC’s Top Of The Pops, the UK’s then premier chart TV show, promoting the single ‘Giving It All Away’ which reached number five in the UK charts. It was a track from his first solo album Daltrey, released that same year, which he followed up with the albums that include Ride A Rock Horse (1975), One Of The Boys (1977), the soundtrack to McVicar (1980), Parting Should Be Painless (1984) and After The Fire (1985)

One of the Boys is the third studio solo album by the Who's lead vocalist, Roger Daltrey. The sessions were recorded at the Who's Ramport Studios during the winter of 1976 (vocals were recorded at Pathe Marconi Studios in Paris, due to tax complications), and Daltrey allowed students from the local Battersea technical school to film them as an educational project. During the making of the album, Perry was dropped from two record labels and went through two canceled albums. She collaborated with producers Greg Wells, Dr. Luke, David A. Stewart, and Max Martin among others on the album. All songs were written by the singer, with assistance of some other producers and writers.
