Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

DR FEELGOOD : Down By The Jetty (1975)

Debut album (released Jan 1975) by British pub rock / R&B outfit Dr Feelgood. Stripped down, hard driving Blues and a massively popular live act. The repertoire was a mixture of R&B classics and Wilko Johnson's original songs. Guitarist Johnson (still touring these days) was a huge influence on a young Paul Weller & his guitar style.

Many thanks to Mark Pengelly.


  1. An excellent and well-timed post! Just last night I became aware that I somehow misplaced a couple of my Dr. Feelgood LP's (including this one!) over the years. Nice to have it back, in a manner of speaking.

  2. Opportune timing! I had some of their stuff on vinyl though received a data disc full - saved me converting vinyl to MP3 !!
