DR FEELGOOD : Stupidity (1976)

A September 1976 release, this saw the Feelgoods reach number 1, with the extra, unusual distinction of having done it with a live album. This highlights what they did best - a mixture of classic covers & originals played live. Wonderful stuff.....


  1. Thanks for posting this. A good start for a person whose only real Dr Feelgood knowledge is that UA best of and the recent documentary.

    And, as I said elsewhere, a post as welcome as the failure of the BNP in the recent elections.

    In other words, very welcome indeed.


  2. Another great Feelgoods post! I am from America and these guys never got the recognition over here that they richly deserved. One of the best bands ever! Wilko Johnson's guitar playing was a big influence on my own.

  3. Great stuff from the best line up of the band.

  4. Have you ever listened to Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, Chris ? Mick Green's playing influenced Wilko & Pete Townshend amongst many others.

  5. Yeah! Great stuff! I didn't get the chance to hear Johnny Kidd & The Pirates until about ten years ago, though. Again, being a Yank I didn't get exposed to this stuff until way after the fact.

  6. track 9 missing, but great job, dude!
