Clips & Pix: Dr. Feelgood/Down At The Doctors

Earlier today, I came across Down At The Doctors, a tune by British pub rockers Dr. Feelgood I’ve always liked. The song, which was written by Mickey Jupp, is the opener of Private Practice, the band’s sixth studio album from October 1978.

The first time I heard Down At The Doctors was the great version from Dr. Feelgood’s live album As It Happens, released in June 1979. The clip looks like it could be from around that time. It features the band’s co-founder and original lead vocalist and harmonica player Lee Brilleaux. He passed away from cancer in April 1994.

Dr. Feelgood is still around and has a busy touring schedule, though the current line-up includes none of the original members.
