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.

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.

Best of Cd's are hard to profile because there is literally NO new material on them...What is there to say the ground has already been covered and in most cases the takes are poorly done. This is not that case, the takes are great and the compilation is good, even the liner notes are good and illustrate the later part of the bands life together. The "WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO" is discussed and as far as J Geils is concerned they treated their demise as a business decision. They broke up while they were on top, not when they had been playing lounge acts for 5 / 10 years. I believe that was a smart thing to do, we have all seen the other side of that coin to much these days, the middle aged pot bellied rock and rollers back together to play a "REUNION" tour and embarrassing themselves terribly. Can you imagine the Bay City Rollers back together for a REUNION tour; it gives me the shakes. J Geils were a top notch blues and Rock Band they took their lumps and they went out like winners first class in my book

Amazing album, from a great band that has way more hits than most people realize. Worth picking up if you like any of their songs.
