Few Live Albums Rival This One

"Growing up in Oz during the Saints/Radio Birdman blitz we also had the privilege to compare the local talent with the "overseas" acts. Dr Feelgood [post Wilco] visited our shores regularly and THANK GOD!! they did. No-one got the sprung-floor at the [now demised] Cloudland Ballroom jumping like 'The Doctor'. Considering the number of great bands I've seen, Stones, Sabbath, Purple, Floyd, Trower, Dream, Reed, etc....there are few bands that delivered every time! EVERY TIME!! Even now, in their latest incarnations, they still are fantastic live. This album captures those early days in the truest way. To me only 'Get Your Ya Ya's'- Stones and 'Bring It Back Alive' - The Outlaws capture that feeling of 'being there' like 'As It Happens'. Captures the essence of The Doctors with some of the great songs - 'Milk & Alcohol', 'Down To The Doctors', 'Baby Jane' to name afew. Just Do It! Footnote: pity the Oil's were not captured live in their early days. The BEST EVER....LIVE!"
Serious pub rock

"I saw Dr Feelgood in Sydney and ran out to get "As It Happens". These guys looked like they had been around the block a few times, but they really knew their R'n'B. While the lyrics are not that inspiring, they rocked hard and fast and played with all their hearts. This guitar player is a blast, and really rips it up supported by a super-solid rhythm section. If you like rock'n'roll pared down to its roots, this is for you."
