The Song Was Recorded By Dr Feelgood Summer 1978
I am sure you all know the reason behind the eight bars of Piano, Mickey Jupp gave the song to Lee about 2 years before it was recorded.
Lee did not like the song at first, but never dropped it from the set list.
Down At The Doctors was used at the end of the BBC Comedy Show "Not The Nine O Clock News" a few times.
Was in the Top 50 for 5 weeks, highest position No 48!
Mickey Jupp did not like the Feelgoods version that is why they recorded it again for the B Side Of "As Long As The Price Is Right".
Covered by Pete Gage before he joined The Band.
Also covered by lots of R&B bands including mine.
Variations Of The Song
In the mid eighties when the song normally ended, they sometimes played either the guitar riff again and or the chorus.
The line "I just want to SHOOT Some Rock And Roll In Your Arm" was amended to
"Just Want To STICK Some Rock And Roll In Your Arm" In the early eighties for obvious reasons.
