Dr Feelgood - Down At The BBC - In Concert 1977-1978

This latest release by Grand Records captures the legendary Dr Feelgood at the peak of their powers. These recordings were made by the BBC and originally broadcast on Radio One. Until now they've remained in the BBC archives. Both concert recordings featured on this album have been digitally re-mastered making this an essential purchase for Dr Feelgood fans as well as fans og guitar-driven rhythm 'n' blues.
Having survived the punk explosion and the acrimonious split with guitarist Wilko Johnson Dr Feelgood set about consolidating their position as the UK's most exciting live band. Wilko's replacement was the then unknown Gypie Mayo. He wasn't unknown for long. His impact on the band was enormous as the 22 tracks on this CD show. Gypie's arrival heralded the beginning of a new more commercial successful era for the band for the band as highlighted by the singles "Milk & Alcohol" and "Down at the Doctors" (live versions of both these Feelgood anthems are included on this CD).
Gypie's guitar heroics proved the perfect foil for the howling and growling of frontman Lee Brilleaux. Mix some blues standards and soul classics with band originals and you have a potion that only Dr Feelgood could come up with.
