Dr. Feelgood & the Interns
Hey, a Friday post! I thought that I'd get something up quickly for the weekend. I mentioned a couple of posts back that I'd found a few interesting albums, recently. That, in and of itself, is fairly rare. Here's one of those albums, by Dr. Feelgood & the Interns. I picked up this gem at Goodwill for just 50 cents. It's in pretty nice shape as these things go.
Dr. Feelgood had formerly recorded as Piano Red in the 1950's and began releasing 45's on OKeh with the Interns in the early 1960's. When I found the album, I noted a few of their early singles were here, including "Doctor Feel-Good", "Bald-Headed Lena" and "What's Up Doc". I was curious to hear what else was on the album. I wasn't disappointed, with several of their other tunes being top-notch.
Today, I'm posting four songs from the album that I don't think were ever released on 45. If anyone knows differently, please fill me in. Up to now, I've never posted album only tracks on the blog. All four are upbeat rockers. I hope you enjoy.
