5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Live albums.....EVER! March 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Blow Your Face Out" is in a league with only a handful of other live albums. Alongside The Allman Brothers' "At the Filmore East" and Cheap Trick's "At Budokan". All three of the records "Get it." Not a bad track in the bunch. Every song on "BYFO" is better than its original studio version.

Recorded in Boston and Detroit back in 1975, J. Geils was on, and I mean on. From the intro to Musta Got Lost to the pumped up version of Lookin' For A Love. Geils was having a ball on stage and it comes through loud and clear on this recording. Highly recomended!

5.0 out of 5 stars MADE LOUD TO BE PLAYED LOUD! April 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The J. Geils Band is a cross between the sound of The Blues Brothers and George Thorogood & The Destroyers. There's J. Geils's guitars, Danny Klein's bass, Seth Justman's keyboards, Stephen Jo Bladd's percussion, Magic Dick's harps, and Peter Wolf's vocals. Speaking of Peter Wolf, he was a former DJ of the manic variety whos late-night raps found their way into his stage routine. Peter Wolf was a classic rapper, between songs, long before rap went mainstream. Woofuh Goofuh with the green teeth and all you Whammer Jammers out there. A J. Geils Band live show gave new meaning to Don't Stop Until You Drop!
Track 1, Southside Shuffle, is an intimate little number with a Wilson Pickett & Eddie Floyd hometown record feel to it.
Track 2, Back To Get Ya, is an R&B groove influenced by the sound of The Ohio Players. It's funky!
Track 3, Shoot Your Shot, was originally recorded by Jr. Walker & The All Stars in 1967.
Track 4, Musta Got Lost, was originally from Geils 1974 album Nightmares. It is preceded by a classic Peter Wolf Woofuh Goofuh rap.
Track 5, Where Did Our Love Go, is the classic Supremes (Diana Ross) #1 hit single from 1964.
Track 6, Truck Drivin' Man, has been recorded by dozens of country music artists. Peter Wolf was, besides a big blues and R&B fan, a big country music fan.
Track 7, Loveitis, is a straight-ahead rocker. Tonsillitis, bursitis, loveitis. Makes sense to me.
Tracks 8 & 9, Looking For Love was a Bobby Womack Top 10 R&B hit for The Valentinos that starts off as a slow intro before Geils blasts into (Ain't Nothin' But A) Houseparty.
Track 10, So Sharp, was a 1967 song from Dyke & The Blazers. When you need some juice to get loose, you listen to Dyke & Blazers, recommends Peter Wolf.
Track 11, Detroit Breakdown, is the classic J.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funkiest Band in the Land June 4, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw the band perform at the Worcester Centrum on Jan. 2, 1983. To this day the best concert I've ever seen.
They started out with their more current pop-hits like Centerfold. After the Mayor came out and gave them the keys to the city, the Mighty J. Geils Band played the good stuff (this album and Full House) deep into the night.
I don't think my rear-end touched the seat once during the entire concert. I dare you to try sitting still while listening to songs like `Back to Get Ya.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Live and Funky! August 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recorded live in Detroit, Michigan at the Cobo Hall, and at the Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, "Blow Your Face Out" was the J. Geils Band's second live offering. It follows the success of 1972's "Full House" and it was released at a time when the band had reached a high level of popularity among fans for its incredible, fully- energetic live performances.
This album contains 17 songs and back when it was released on vinyl (remember records?), it was a two- record set. The songs on this album are mostly fun, funky, good times rock and roll with rhythm and blues influences on many songs. The R&B is strongest on songs like "Where did our Love Go" (Cover of the old Supremes hit single), "So Sharp", and others. But the most memorable songs on the album are "Musta Got Lost", a song known for its introductory speech by lead singer Peter Wolf; "Houseparty", and all- out rocker that explodes from start to finish; and "Give it to Me", a funky tune with an R&B groove.
This album does expereince an occasional low, and this fact prevents me from rating it higher. I don't care too much for the single "Truck Drivin' Man", with its country roots. "Sno- Cone" and "Back to get Ya" are also forgettable. They are average songs at best and they should have been left off the album.
Overall, though, "Blow Your Face Out" delivers as a live CD. The music is mostly fun and energetic. It may not have the all- out, in your face, shake- your- body- every- which- way feeling that made "Full House" so enjoyable, but it's still better than your average live CD and it makes a great addition to any music collection. It's a must for any die- hard J. Geils Band fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU CAN'T HELP YOURSELF! November 3, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is the second of three live albums the J. GEILS BAND put out. Each one they seem to go all out. BLOW YOUR FACE OUT is by far the best! It's a great cd to listen to when your cleaning the house. Or making love with a beautyfull woman. If you love to dance. you hade better,because this cd was made loud to be played loud. You will not be able to stop. When the J. Geils Band is in concert. Go!Go!Go! It will turn into the best party you ever seen. This cd makes a great x-mas gift to for Mom and Dad. If they look like they have been in a rut lately.(midlife crisis) Just watch the gleam in there eyes as they start shaken their butts,and heading straight for the bedroom. You think i'm kidding? try it out and you'll give this prize from history.1976(the same year bob seager's "live bullet"and lynard skynard's "one from the road" came out).FIVE STARS It was a very good year. THANK YOU!
