"A Case of the Shakes", the group's second album recorded with Nick Lowe, proved that Dr. Feelgood's last three records simply captured the band in a transitional phase. On Shakes, the band returns to form, ripping through a set of catchy three-chord rockers that are invigorated by Lowe's new wave-tinged production. Allmusic
"Probably the best record of the Feelgoods without Wilko Johnson. Fantasticly produced by Nick Lowe, this record contains a set of powerful songs that nobody seemed to notice at the time. In the middle of the New Wave Era, Dr. Feelgood was considered as a part of the past even though Lee Brilleaux was only twenty seven years old when this record was released." Amazon reviews
"The following year, in1980, the band turned, once again, to Nick Lowe to produce the album "A Case of The Shakes" which featured the song writing talents of Lowe, Larry Wallis and former Brinsley Schwartz keyboard player, Bob Andrews.
The album was something of a return to core values for the Feelgoods, and was duly noted by the music press, describing it as "Their best album for years"
The band set about continuing their gruelling tour schedule across the globe, but the lengthy periods away from his young family began to take their toll on Gypie Mayo.
On stage, he had proven himself to be a worthy replacement for Wilko, and off stage, had shown a flair for fast-living excess that matched any of his bandmates.
Eventually, however, Gypie Mayo decided that it was time to concentrate his attentions towards his family and, once again, the band set about the difficult task of recruiting a new guitarist." Amazon
