Comprised of recordings taken from 1975 tours, the live Stupidity
finally captures the relentless, hard-driving energy of Dr. Feelgood
at their peak. All the music on Stupidity
is presented raw and without overdubs, making it clear that the dynamic friction between guitarist Wilko Johnson
and vocalist Lee Brilleaux
could propel the band toward greatness. While many of the versions here don't differ in form from the original studio versions, these unvarnished performances are considerably more exciting, revealing the Johnson
originals "She Does It Right" and "All Through the City" as minor rock & roll classics.
