Day 269

J. Geils Band- Love Stinks

Another album that pleasantly surprised me. This also came from one of those Half Price Books grab bags and I only kept it for the title track because it's the only song I knew on the record and I always thought that it was a really cool tune.

But I was pleasantly surprised by the opening track "Just Can't Wait". Instantly became my favorite J. Geils Band song. Now I admittedly don't know much about J. Geils Band other than the hits, but I don't remember this one being a single. I sure hope it was.

Overall, it's a real nice record with maybe the exception being "No Anchovies Please". Weird tune.

One thing I've always wondered about this band though is why are they named after the guitar player? Seems to me this band was all about Peter Wolf and Magic Dick.

  1. I've heard good things about early J. Geils from the early to mid 70s stuff...
