Product Description

Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Single Disc Collection of Their Best Songs July 16 2014
By From the Musician's Pen TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A good single disc collection of their best work. They were a good live rock and roll band and some of the tracks here are live but are very good versions. The biggest hits have the studio versions (except "I Do" because the hit version was live).

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars On The Mark April 5 2006
By Robert Lanxner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Much better track selection and sound than Flashback and more concise than the box set. Finally a Best Of that is not missing key tracks. Good liner notes too. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Because it includes "Come Back" and "Angel in Blue" Sept. 23 2007
By Jeff Pearlman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Rhino's 2-disc set left off two songs I really enjoyed. Though they weren't the biggest hits of the group's EMI years, "Come Back" (#32, 1980) was a sharp rock/disco hybrid and "Angel in Blue" (#40, 1982) was a nice slow song about a lady "who never had dreams, so they never came true." I didn't say they're classics, just that I liked them.

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.)

4.0 out of 5 stars My Kids Like This CD (I do too!) Aug. 28 2006
By Randy Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are over 35 years old you will remember about 75% of the songs on this compilation. I purchased this CD because my two boys have heard "Centerfold" on the radio and love to sing along. They don't understand the lyrics (not yet anyway,..too early for that conversation) but you have to admit the refrain is infectious. This is a must have CD for "road trips" and/ or decade theme parties (70's and 80's). Not a 5 star from me due to sound quality of live selections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this CD June 22 2013
By AceDeuceThree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought the CD...but I heard a friend that they bought the mp3 and did not get all the songs from the CD.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best 1970s music April 11 2013
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Who hasn't heard "Centerfold," "Freeze-Frame" or "Love Stinks?" Everybody's heard them and I dare say that everybody loves them. Well, this album includes those great songs, and quite a bit more. Yeah, like with all "Best Of" albums, people will always complain about songs that got left off, but in this case I think they produced a really good album.

If you like good 1970s music, indeed the best 1970s music, then get this album. You won't be disappointed!
