Biography

Canvey Island, Essex, was an unlikely birthplace for Britain's finest R&B band. Its bleak industrial skyline set against the cold waters of the Thames estuary, keeps it from inclusion in most holiday brochures, but in the 1960's it was home to teenage friends Lee Collinson, Chris White and John Sparkes.

The trio shared a strong interest in music, and with like minded friends, ... Read more in Amazon's Dr. Feelgood Store

Probably because this was the first Dr Feelgood album I owned - sadly some time after the event, I hasten to add - it's still my favourite to this day.

If there was any justice the band would be popularly remembered for the raw and propulsive title track ("I've never seen so many women since the day they closed the factory down") rather than Milk And Alcohol.

Nothing outstays its welcome and there's the usual mix of driving originals (even Paradise has grown on me over the years, especially after learning the story behind it) and tasty covers (I love the brutal harmonica on Nothin' Shakin').

The first three albums are better but this is still very worthwhile for old-style RnB fans. Wilko may not have played on all of Sneakin' Suspicion but I reckon it's in a different league to anything the band produced after he'd gone.

Oil City Confidential inspired me to dig this out again ... both the brilliant film and excellent soundtrack album - featuring well chosen and remastered tracks - are thoroughly recommended and, realistically, all the Feelgood most people will need.

This is a brilliant album. I've read that there were some disagreements amongst the band during recording and that the album is flawed because of this. I loved this album when it was first released and it sounds just as good now - thirty years have passed and It is still a pure delight to listen to. Every track is strong, the tightness in the music is evident from start to finish and the guitar riffs are superb. I would say, if you want good solid, no nonsense rock and roll then you won't get better than this. Don't listen to this with a musicology hat on, examining how it was made - it wasn't meant to be studied, just enjoyed. One last note - it's great for listening to whilst driving!

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Mr. S. Bush on 3 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
I worshipped the Feelgoods, so when this album arrived I was first in the queue at my local Virgin Records and rushed it home. At the first listen I was so disappointed I almost burst into tears. The main problem is the weedy production. The tight, punchy delivery of the first 2 studio albums is replaced with a kind of spongy, thin soup, which doesn't help the rather lacklustre performances or the less-than-riveting material. Of course, we now know that tensions within the band, and Wilko's departure immediately after this recording, had a lot to do with all of this, but back then it just seemed like my favourite band had blown it, big time. The passing of the years has been a little kinder to the album. Now it just sounds like a mildly amiable romp through the side streets of pub rock, and - for Feelgood completists - is a worthwhile addition to the collection. For the REAL DEAL, though, '...Jetty', 'Malpractice', 'Stupidity' and the excellent 'Be Seeing You' are far better bets.

Riding on high success with previous studio albums this was in fact their "difficult third album". Live record Stupidity was sort of jackpot and obvious seller to be taken away and needful break to hectic need for new material among many gigs around everywhere.
Sound is a bit domesticated and cleaned and it shows that Wilko wasn't able to make enough strong writing and tensions started boiling underneath which eventually caused guitarist to leave the band. Only ten songs also tells that writer's block was hiding on the corner.
Jerry Byrne's Lights Out is perhaps most weakest cover they made ever, (Johnny Cash's Get Rhythm on Brilleaux- album ten years later came close) Too hastily put out song does not make justice to original Byrne's outburst and Brilleaux vocals sounds just too nonchalant
Lew Lewis Lucky Seven has good balance with laidback and grooviness, it just creeps under skin and shows potential of this record had they came up with few tunes more with same quality. A bit unreasonable to say because it was used as an excuse for Wilko to resign but Lucky Seven might be best song on this album. Hypnotic Paradise sung by Wilko sounds well too but perhaps need for build some hooks to catch on and more time for writing and getting strenght out between Wilko and rest of the band should have made more suitable result.

I am a (very) old rocker but didnt get into Dr F at the time but their Live at the Kursall DVD was my catalist for an interest in them

I must say that i find their live stuff is terrific whereas their studio stuff is just OK

Wish I had seen them live . I was in Soufend in the 60's ....just a little too soon

Not as strong as the previous three albums but nevertheless still contains a couple of gems. The eponymous "Sneakin' Suspicion" is classic Feelgood which Lee B delivers with customary panache.
