This band bowled me over with their sound and attitude, gritty R&B like this is just not around anymore. Dr. Feelgood predated the punk years, and although they probably do not get enough credit for it, they must have influenced the playing styles of many punk bands. Wilko Johnson's driving guitar style is enough to make one think how seriously underrated this band is, and it stuns me that they never found an audience in the United States. Their covers of Bo Diddley's "I Can Tell" and Muddy Waters' "Rolling and Tumbling" on this album not only do justice to their R&B roots, but bring such an energy to the songs that the band made these classics their own. Vocalist Lee Brilleaux was one of a kind; his raspy singing voice was amazing, as was his harmonica playing and stage presence. "Malpractice" and the majority of Dr. Feelgood's classic albums were unavailable on CD for many years (or were never released on CD at all), so I am REALLY glad to see their music becoming more readily available. I also have to comment that the sound quality is excellent. You can't go wrong starting your Dr. Feelgood collection with this classic album. However, I would not recommend listening to this album while driving unless you want a speeding ticket, that's the effect this music has on the listener!

I'm not much of a writer. Dr. Feelgood was definitely a part of the playlists from WMMS Cleveland radio during the 1980's. I will speak only regarding studio albums...just great high energy tight rock music. If for no other reason, you might be collecting rare tunes. This LP includes 'Back in the night'. But actually for the money, just play the damn cd....it's all worth it.

My first introduction to the Feelgoods, and what an introduction! From the trilogy of all time classics - "Going Back Home", "Back In The Night" and "Riot In Cell Block No 9" - through to the lesser known but equally exhilarating "Rolling and Tumbling", "I Can Tell" and "Because You're Mine" (and five more of the same), this is prime, thumping and sinster British R&B. Brilleaux's harp playing and manic vocals, Wilko's riffing, Sparko and Figure's booming rhythm, I could go on forever about the virtues of this record. Buy it!

This album showcases Wilko Johnson's distinctive staccato guitar style that was so admired by the likes of Paul Weller and which so obviously influenced the Gang of Four. I've heard a lot of bluesey guitar rock but this guitar style is like nothing else. Lee Brilleaux's growling vocals are a real treat too.
They tip their hats to the old greats like Bo Diddley and Gene Vincent but most of the songs are originals.
If you like George Thoroughgood and the Destroyers style of amped-up blues and rock 'n roll, this one is for you.

I love this album.
Great band, great album, great humour. Virtually every song on this is a keeper. Special mention goes to "Another man", "Don't let your daddy know", "I can tell", and the incomparable "Back in the night". If you try to single out the manic Wilko's guitar playing, you need to mention Lee Brilleaux's growling voice, and then there's the rhythm section...

"I Can Tell" has some rough guitar playing and hoarse vocals. Actually when I say "rough" there's also a unique element of smoothness too. It's in between rough and smooth, haha. Never heard a rock band trick me in such a way like Dr. Feelgood does here. Anyway this is perfect straight ahead rock for your late night party moods. Maybe if I liked George Thorogood's style better, he'd sound like this! "Going Back Home" has a little bit of a Molly Hatchet "Flirtin' With Disaster" flow in the rhythm, but the straight ahead nature of the bands rock style is in full swing. I also sense a slight 50's style early rock vibe as well. Nice harmonica jamming giving the song a slight southern sound.

"Back In the Night" has a Paul McCartney & the Wings sound in the guitar playing. So far I'm LOVING this album! This song has a fantastic beat that never loses steam. So far *none* of the songs lose steam. The slide guitar is kept relatively restrained but it works really well. I can't explain WHY it works so well. Must be the steadiness of the rhythm keeping me content. "Another Man" is more genius simplicity- just keep a steady rhythm going with vocals that remain in the early rock style and that's all you need really. "Rollin' and Tumblin"

When I first saw the cover of this LP back in 1975, it was an advertisement in CREEM magazine. The ripples of what this band did not only helped launch the entire PUNK movement, but remains almost an excusive British product. Wilko Johnson's start (actually this is the 2ND LP, after the MONO DOWN AT THE JETTY) as a world class guitarist is cemented here in various songs that echo his hero, Mick Green of the PIRATES. Even lead singer Lee B. adds killer slide. And who could ask for a better bass/drum combo to back you? So...I bought this LP and fell in love. Now I own most of the reissued CDs and they all sound great. Many parties I have had included slapping on this CD and always had the effect of folks asking Who Is This? Should be in every serious rawk collection...
