Yeah man, saw them several times, one of the absolute best nites of my life began at a J Geils concert, it was my first time ever having a date with a black girl, "Jungle Fever" kicked in so to speak.
Other than the harmonica classic "Whammer Jammer", I like "Homework", very cool harp and guitar riff on that one, used to play it in a band I was in waaaaay back in the last century sometime, the '80s were good to me.
Another great tune from their first album is their cover of Hooker's "Serves You Right To Suffer". And while Peter Wolf was a dynamic hipster jive frontman, along with Majic Dick's genius level harmonica playing, J Geils was no slouch when it came to a scorching guitar solo, he could hold his own with anyone.
If you saw them in Detroit it was at the Cinderella Ballroom, they recorded their first live album "Full House" there. At a time when live albums where often a toss off offered by the record company, and of dubious quality when compared to a studio LP,
J Geils Bands' "Full House" is considered a masterpiece for its time.
