Made loud to play loud

That’s what it says on the flip side of this album.

No point in messing around. This is one of my favorite sides, ever.

This is the J. Geils Band, recorded at its peak as the great American show band of its time, Nov. 15 and 19, 1975, at Cobo Hall in Detroit and at their hometown Boston Garden.

We saw them live on a bitterly cold night in Milwaukee some six years later. This is what it was like. It got hot and sweaty on that bitterly cold night.

If you know J. Geils Band only from their MTV hits of the early ’80s, you need to listen to this. Testifyin’!

“Where Did Our Love Go,” “Truck Drivin’ Man,” “Love-itis,” “Intro (Lookin’ For a Love)” and “(Ain’t Nothin’ But a) House Party,” the J. Geils Band, from “Blow Your Face Out,” 1976. It runs 16:45.
