Motley Crue’s 1989 album Dr. Feelgood turned 30 over the weekend, and to celebrate, the ’80s metallers are reissuing the record on November 29.
“After feeling robbed of a #1 album with Girls Girls Girls, the band was hell bent on topping ourselves on every level,” says bassist Nikki Sixx. “Bringing in Bob Rock to produce and push us musically and lyrically was just what the doctor ordered…The band was clean, lean and sober and this album has some of our proudest work.”
In addition to a standalone CD and vinyl featuring new packaging, the 30th anniversary version Dr. Feelgood will also be released as part of a deluxe package featuring an extra three seven-inch vinyl picture discs, as well as various memorabilia including guitar picks, a deck of cards, pins and a prescription notepad.
Dr. Feelgood is Motley Crue’s best-selling album, having been certified six-times platinum. It spawned the hits singles “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Without You,” “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)” and “Same Ol’ Situation (S.O.S.).”
