One of the UK’s hardest working groups, The Feelgoods formed in 1971 on their native Canvey Island beside the Thames estuary. This release is covering the full history of the band so far, along with a new recording. It’s a rendition of Willie Dixon’s ‘You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover’ which Bo Diddley made his own on the Chess label. This double album is a fitting way to herald half a century of one of the truly great British bands.
Theirs is a remarkable story. Fronted by singer and harmonica player Lee Brilleaux and guitarist-extraordinaire Wilko Johnson, they made their name in the music pubs of London establishing their status as a must-see act.
