Presse Archiv - Destination Health - Dr. Feelgood's Rock Therapy - keys and chords

Covid-19 slaat wereldwijd wild om zich heen en veroorzaakt een pandemie met een enorm groot aantal slachtoffers. ‘In Ons Kot’ blijven was de boodschap, iets wat we ons een tijdje terug nog moeilijk konden voorstellen. Dat muziek helend werkt, hebben we gelukkig al vaak mogen ervaren. Ziekten maakten ook in het verleden reeds massa’s slachtoffers, denken we maar bijvoorbeeld aan tuberculose, cholera, de Spaanse of de Aziatische griep. Ook toen lieten artiesten zich hierdoor inspireren en componeerden nummers die als het ware een therapeutisch effect hadden om de crisissen te bezweren. Dat bracht het schitterende Bear Family label op het idee om deze ‘Destination Health, Doc Feelgood’s Rock Therapy’ op de markt te brengen.

Naast de vitamine boost die dit album je ongetwijfeld geeft, maken we ook een muzikale trip. Deze compilatie bevat naast ‘good old rock ‘n’ roll’ van toppers als Johnny Burnette & The Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio’s ‘Rock Therapy’ of Carl Perkins’ ‘Boppin’ The Blues’, tevens een aantal formidabele blues en rhythm & blues tracks van o.a. Floyd Dixon, Little Willie Littlefield en Doctor Ross, hier met het legendarische ‘The Boogie Disease’. Interessant is ook dat er hier heel wat te ontdekken valt. Minder gekende artiesten als Dennis Bell met het vrolijke ‘Quarantine’, of Joey Nepote die al rockend om een ‘Doctor, Doctor, Doctor’ smeekt. Mooi en meeslepend is dan weer het instrumentale ‘Medic’, het thema van de gelijknamige T.V. serie, door Les Baxter & his Orchestra. Een ander leuk instrumentaaltje is zeker het mambo getinte ‘Vitamina’ van Noro Morales.


En zoals het ondertussen bij Bear Family een traditie is, bevat ook dit album weer een 28 tellende in kleur geïllustreerde, door Bill Dahl samengestelde booklet, met niet alleen een pak informatie over de artiesten en de songs, maar ook schitterende retro aandoende tekeningen.
’30 Bop Pills For Your Recovery’ is de subtitel van dit album en bevestigt nogmaals dat ‘Destination Health, Doc Feelgood’s Rock Therapy’ het ideale medicament is om je door de coronacrisis te helpen. Een aanrader zonder meer!

​Covid-19 is raging worldwide and is causing a pandemic with a huge number of victims. What we need is a good rock 'n' roll and blues based treatment. And this compilation released by Bear Family proves that it works.

Covid-19 is spreading wildly around the world and is causing a pandemic with a huge number of victims. Staying in Our Room' was the message, something we could hardly imagine a while back. Fortunately, we have often experienced that music has a healing effect. Even in the past, illnesses have made masses of victims, just think of tuberculosis, cholera, the Spanish or Asian flu. In those days too, artists were inspired by this and composed songs that had a therapeutic effect, as it were, to ward off the crises. That's what brought the brilliant Bear Family label to the idea to bring this 'Destination Health, Doc Feelgood's Rock Therapy' on the market. Next to the vitamin boost this album undoubtedly gives you, we also make a musical trip.

This compilation contains next to 'good old rock 'n' roll' by top artists like Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'n' Roll Trio's 'Rock Therapy' or Carl Perkins' 'Boppin' The Blues', also a number of formidable blues and rhythm & blues tracks by a.o. Floyd Dixon, Little Willie Littlefield and Doctor Ross, here with the legendary 'The Boogie Disease'. It's also interesting that there's a lot to discover here. Lesser-known artists like Dennis Bell with the cheerful 'Quarantine', or Joey Nepote begging for a 'Doctor, Doctor, Doctor' while rocking. Beautiful and compelling is the instrumental 'Medic', the theme of the T.V. series of the same name, by Les Baxter & his Orchestra. Another nice instrumental language is certainly the mambo-tinted 'Vitamina' by Noro Morales.
And as it has become a tradition with Bear Family, this album contains another 28 colour illustrated booklet, compiled by Bill Dahl, with not only a lot of information about the artists and the songs, but also beautiful retro looking drawings.
