40 tracks pursue the band from start to finish and beyond the final rush of cuts includes material from vocalist Lee Brilleaux's last ever live show (the full concert appears on the Down at the Doctors album), together with four more from On the Road Again, the reborn Doctor's first album with new vocalist Pete Gage. It's stirring, sterling stuff throughout. It begins with a clutch of songs drawn from the Wilco Johnson heyday, which put the band on the map and made punk rock a reality. From Album to album tracks have been carefully selected. Tracks include Roxette, She Does It Right, Back in the Night and I Can Tell.
Top Customer Reviews
These forty tracks are really everything that the casual Feelgood fan needs. "Roxette" is here, as is "Keep It Out Of Sight", "No Mo Do Yakamo", "Sugar Turns To Alcohol", "Milk & Alcohol" and every other well-known song, including four from the post-Brilleaux album "On The Road Again".
Not every song may be of the caliber of "Roxette" or the other classic hits, but there is certainly nothing bad on here.
I'm sure that some dedicated fans can find good some albums tracks missing, but this is really a very good and thorough compilation., and should satisfy almost everyone.
Only recently, when a friend got excited about Wilko Johnson's "final" tour (which turned out not to be; he's now made an album with Roger Daltry which I await keenly as I write this) did this ex- Londoner, become aware of Dr.Feelgood apart from a solitary single - "Milk & Alcohol".
I was so impressed with the few videos I was able to see on YouTube that I bought the company....no, wait.....oh no, that's right, I ordered this set.
Now, I hear Dr. Feelgood and know that I missed a major opportunity. Yes, I still like the early work with Wilko in the band a bit more than the later stuff - but it's pretty close in places. They continued on the course that I have always wished the Rolling Stones had pursued instead of trying to keep up with the Beatles and eventually becoming what I always called them - the "Strolling Bones"
This is only a snapshot of a long career into which I will now delve more deeply but, from what I hear here, it is one dedicated to pure good-time Rock 'n' Roll, pub style, unpretentious but immensely entertaining and never less than totally competent,
By the last few tracks on this set, we are listening to "Grandad's Hammer"; the head has been replaced, the handle has been reaplaced, but it's still Grandad's Hammer. There are no original members left, but somehow (and I've never heard any other band EVER do this, though some have tried) it's STILL Dr. Feelgood. A revelation, truly.
