The J. Geils Band were one of the most popular rock & roll bands in America during the '70s. They had no trouble packing out arenas as they churned out their unusual mix of greasy covers of obscure R&B, doo wop, and soul tunes. The band had a distinctive style, catchy R&B-based rock tunes like "Give It To Me" and "Musta Of Got Lost". The early 80's saw the release of the bands biggest hit that entered the UK chart at number 3 "Centerfold". Soon after the release of "Centerfold" the band spilt up and went their separate ways. Capitol. 2006.

I removed one star because although the remastered sound is good, it's too compressed and so it's somewhat loud and the full dynamics have been squished a bit.
They have at least 2 other single disc hits collections, each with less songs. This CD has the best tracks from both of those, IMO, but the other CD's are both older and so they probably do not have the remastered and compressed sound.

The down side is that 2 of the band's 3 biggest chart hits on Atlantic (Must of Got Lost and Lookin' For a Love) are presented in live versions. This is a one-disc collection that's pretty full, however (74 mins.). There wasn't enough room to show off the band's live prowess and still include every studio hit. And the live versions of Lookin' For a Love and Must of Got Lost are really good. Recommendation: enjoy the live stuff here and spring for the other "Best of". (The one with the bowling pins.)
The CD is exactly from the album plus a few extras. This is by far the BEST J.GEILS CD. It has all their hits plus...The live songs are their best, they are what was played on the Radio, not the studio versions in which some reviewers have suggested. You need the live introductions to Whammer Jammer, Looking For a Love and Must of Got Lost. They are what make the songs that much better. BUY THIS CD.
This isn't the first time I've seen that you get less on an MP3 download on Amazon, and since these days people tend not to sweat the details, then moan when they realize the rip-off, I wanted a warning to appear in print, since Amazon merely reprints the CD reviews on the download page.
Or purchase the download if you don't care about the earlier material. I'm just trying to point out the differences in
what you'll be purchasing.
