Dr Feelgood was at their best playing live, and even though most of these live versions stick close to the originals, they are played with so much energy and nerve, making this one of the very best Dr Feelgood albums.
This is down and dirty R&B with crunchy stop-and-go guitar riffs. Lee Brilleaux' vocals sound even more rough and gravelly than usual, and his harp playing is sharp as shards of broken glass. The performance of the three Johns gels completely, from the less-is-more approach of guitarist John "Wilko Johnson" Wilkinson, to the rock-solid foundation of bassist John B. Sparks and drummer John "The Big Figure" Martin.
This is some of the best and juiciest rock n' roll you're ever likely to hear.
