Crash-bam-boom! This is the musical equivalent of a 4th of July fireworks display by one of the hottest groups ever to soar onstage, and one of the most ferocious shows of its time. If crackling energy is what you need and explosive rock 'n roll is your medicine, this band was made to order. Recorded live in 1972 at Detroit's Cinderella Ballroom on two steamy nights, the place jumped like a pogo stick with mad springs as Peter Wolf lived up to his name and yowled, yelled, screeched, and bawled alongside his five locomotive bandmates.
This Boston-based band plays like they are trying to sprint a marathon, and it's absolutely magnificent to hear these guys work out their love for R&B smokers. "First I Look at the Purse" leaps with claws outstretched as the band takes no prisoners at the opening signal onslaught of Stephen Jo. Bladd's rollercoaster drumming, and Seth Justman whips up a thunderstorm on shrieking organ. However, they just toy with your excitement, because Magic Dick jumps in (yes, that's his name) to kick down the door and demolishes the place with raging harmonica. Crunching mega-ton choruses pound away as Wolf hammers relentlessly on vocals, and without a moment's hesitation, they zoom straight into Otis Rush's "Homework". I've heard Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac do this, but not this volatile, and this is definitely street-wise schooling from the rough end of town that can't be found on any diploma. Wolf and Dick pair off like two angry cats, J. Geils throws some darts with quick guitar licks, and Justman spraypaints clouds again on organ. Hot, hot, hot!
All Peter Wolf needs is to hear the audience goading him on, and he gives it right back, tantalizing them: "This is called 'Take Out Your False Teeth, Momma-I wanna Suck on Your Gums!

Back in 1972, when I was browsing through the small record section they had at the college bookstore, I came across this jewel. I don't remember what exactly struck me to buy this record. Maybe it was the bright yellow cover that stood out. All I know is, it was the best $3.99 I've ever spent on a record. From the minute I put this on the turntable, I knew I was in for a wild ride. I had never even remotely heard rock music played this way. This album has more raw energy than any live record I've heard before or since. These guys were an all american rock and roll band that played everything from Mississippi delta blues, to Motown, to all out arena rock. There was nobody like em out there. And for just a moment in time, when everything clicked, like on this album, this was the best rock and roll band on the planet. There was an arsenal of talent in this band to back these words up. From the ultimate master of the harp, Magic Dick, who always played that dang thang like his pants were on fire. To the great piano and organ of Seth Justman, who had a great sense of melody for being in such a rugged band. To the slinging guitar dangerman J.Geils. And for the frosting on the cake, the ex disc jockey turned singer Peter Wolf, who could do a motor-mouthed rap routine between and during songs that would make even Snoop Doggy Dogg stand up and take notice. And this was in 1972! There's no mistake Peter Wolf was the cat who ran this show. As for the music on here, there are no weak sisters in here, their all great songs. A few favorites here is the Motown song "First I Look At The Purse", written by Smokey Robinson. Did I say Motown? Smokey's gotta be scratching his head over this one. It's pretty wild. I loved it most when these guys played the blues. And there's a couple gems on here.Read more ›

I first saw the Geils band in 1972. Every day my friends and I would listen to this album while riding to high school, on my 8 track player! I was hooked then and still am today. I tried to convert as many friends as I could, dragging them to shows at every chance. I had the good fortune of living in the Northeast, where they toured nonstop during the 70's.
This CD displays all the energy of a classic live Geils show. Peter Wolf and the band at their tightest! As a testament to their enduring popularity, I was at their opening date for the reunion tour , summer '99. The crowd rose to their feet at the opening chord, and remained up, singing every note to every song for an amazing 2 1/2 hours. Whipping a crowd into a frenzy is what these boys do best! This is the ultimate live party album, and nearly 30 years later the album and the band still flat out rocks! Live music is what Geils does best, and this album is the best of the best!

When this album came out in the early 70's everyone said, "who's the J.Geils Band", but after all these years, one might forget the band, but never the album. This is one of those "rock the house down" albums that will not allow your foot to stay still as it is classic rock n' roll. Granted, the length of the album is not long, but remember, great things come in small packages!! I am 50 years old and this album still remains one of my top ten !!

I agree with everything said in the previous reviews. There is no doubt that this is one of the best live performances ever pressed on vinyl. The band has tremendous chops; no other band plays R&B with this intensity.
The only problem here is the length; the CD is only about 30 minutes. In a vault, somewhere, collecting dust, is the other 60-90 minutes of this concert. Advise to the record company: Please send someone who's not to busy into the archives to dig this out, and release it, to bring joy and happiness to all the J Geils fans.
