Yes, I ordered it by mail order and have been listening to it for a couple
of weeks now. It is great!! Nadine is the first track and has a vintage
Feelgood sound to it. The other 13 tracks get the same Feelgood treatment
and Robert's vocals are superb. Go get it now!!

Absolutley Tip Top!

Easily a real big return to form in the "Feelgood Factor Style".

BTW, anybody read the Saturday Telegraph (!) re Canvey Island walk/musical

Roland and others...
I bought the CD 2 weeks ago and am very impressed...the content reminds me
of a number of previous Dr. Feelgood styles...just when I thought the
feelgoods could do no more.

The CD is being marketed in HMV (Cheltenham UK store) as 'Recommended'...the
last time this ever happened to my knowledge was for 'Stupidity'!!!

Good listening for anyone who has ever been into the feelgoods at any stage
during the last 25 years or so.

I gots me a complete Dr. Feelgood collection on CD with the exception of
their latest album, "Chess Masters" (and I don't consider the new,
Brilleaux-less version of the band a proper "Dr. Feelgood", not only cause
he's no longer with us but also cause there are no original band members
left therein!!) so I rotate them all the time - Case of the Shakes, Fast
Women Slow Horses, Stupidity, On The Job, Malpractice, Down at the Doctors,
etc. - ALWAYS FUN.



I'm fishing here in the newsgroups. I've only edited the above with regards to connection details and stuff that has not the least bit to do with the subject here. These are otherwise the originals. Suppose the story is far from being told, watch this space! And let me put it this way, the positive views expressed above are entirely not mine and completely contrary to my own opinions.
