McVicar, Roger Daltrey's fourth studio album, and also the soundtrack album of McVicar, the film of the same name. The film was a bio-pic of English bank robber John McVicar, was produced by Daltrey and also featured him in the starring role. Because all members of The Who played on the album, it is often considered to be an unrecognized Who album although there was no participation by the band in the songwriting.
The album was released in June 1980, on Polydor PD-1-6284 in the USA. It was produced by Jeff Wayne and recorded at Advision Studios, London. Daltrey's vocals were recorded at Air Studios, Montserrat, West Indies. The album reached #22 in the U.S. charts and produced Daltrey's highest charting single, "Without Your Love."[2]
In 2001 Swedish HipHop group Infinite Mass used Daltrey's song "My Time is Gonna Come" (as well as the bass line in the song) for their International hit "Bullet". The music video for "Bullet" is a composite of clips from the film McVicar and new footage.
