Down by the Jetty is the debut album by Dr. Feelgood, released in January 1975.

The band's Johnny Kidd & The Pirates influenced originals ("Keep It Out of Sight") appear alongside covers material like "Bonie Maronie" and "Tequila".[3]

Paul Weller and Bob Geldof have acknowledged the influence of the album, as have Blondie, The Ramones and Richard Hell, who were introduced to the album by Blondie's drummer, Clem Burke.[4]

In 1976, prior to being signed, The Jam demoed a cover of "Cheque Book". Paul Weller's copy of the album is also glimpsed on the sleeve of The Style Council's 1985 LP, Our Favourite Shop.[5][6]
