When Motley was struggling in the mid 90s to stay relevant, they released the excellent Crucial Crue series, which included demos, instrumentals and unreleased versions. Dr. Feelgood's Crucial Crue is excellent and complete. Including FOUR demos and the unavailable Get It For Free, it encompassed the process that led to the success of Dr. Feelgood.
However, this new version, includes only the five singles in live versions previously found in 1998's Motley Crue Live Entertainment or Death, which, in itself, is a very bad live album.
So, do yourself a favor and hunt for the Crucial Crue version, if you don't have it, and stay away from this re-re-release that adds nothing of value to this magnificent album.
I'll review this song by song (my ratings are in parenthesis)
1.T.nT "Terror 'n Tinseltown)-Nice intro, sets the tone. (5/5)
2.Dr. Feelgood-The infamous title track, features an excellent Tommy Lee back beat, clever lyrics. I Like Mick Mars demonic voice at the end. (5/5)
3.Slice of your Pie-Has a great blues influence, Steven Tyler co-arranged it. (4/5)
4.Rattlesnake shake-Rollicking mainframe, with a full horn and piano section. Vince Neil is in fine form vocally. (5/5)
5.Kickstart my heart-A top ten hit, Heavy riff, excellent slowed down bridge, and a kick-ass Tommy Lee drum solo to finish it off. The video was a blistering, in-your-face performance. (5/5)

I remember fondly being 13 years old in 1984 wearing the pentagram Crue tee shirts with my mullet and having people think I was a demonologist. Fun times.
As far as this album goes, it's kind of the Layla of my generation. Pure classic rock. In a league of its own. Beyond mere metal. Still a favorite among strippers. That's about a perfect album.
My favorite songs: "Dr. Feelgood", "T.nT. (Terror In Tinseltown)" (this is like part one of "Dr. Feelgood" (the song), "Slice Of Your Pie", "Without You", "Kickstart My Heart", and "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)", which sounds like an "ode" someone might send out to a snobby ex-girlfriend- listen to the lyrics, it starts off as a very pretty love song, and then it gets to the "I Don't Care About You Anymore" part of the song- there is a reason why I like this song so much, but I don't know what it is, I just do.
As for the re-issuing on this album,there are five bonus tracks: original demos of "Dr. Feelgood","Without You", "Kickstart My Heart", and "Time For Change", as well as a demo for a song that was never released at all:"Get It For Free". The producer of this album, Bob Rock, wrote a few small liner notes inside the album sheets, and Nikki Sixx commented on three of the bonus tracks while Mick Mars commented on the remaining two.Read more ›

I know this was their best selling album/tour blah, blah, blah. but for me it's one of my least favorite. It just sounds to polished to be true Crue. Read morePublished 1 day ago by God-Of-Lyf
