TJR says

My favourite of the three Dr. Feelgood albums that I own, largely down to the exceptional “Paradise”, their finest hour, albeit unrepresentative of their regular sound. It seems like they’re in a time-warp with the title-track which opens the set – while the UK is going mad for Punk, they’re intent on playing bar-room blues. I mean, not that it’s bad or anything, just a little strange sounding in ’77. Once I get over myself and accept that all they want to do is play good ol’ harmonica-infused blues-rock then I’m fine with them – they’re damned good at it. Unfortunately for fans of the group, lead vocalist Lee Brilleaux and songwriter-guitarist Wilko Johnson weren’t getting on, and the latter would leave the band shortly after the release of this LP. Just when it was getting good too, don’t you just hate when that happens?
