THE J. GEILS BAND - 'Live' Full House (1972) & Flashback, The Best Of J. Geils (1988)
The J. Geils Band was an American rock band formed in 1968 in Worcester, Massachusetts, under the leadership of guitarist John "J." Geils. The band played R&B-influenced blues rock during the 1970s, and soon achieved commercial success before moving towards a more new wave mainstream sound in the early 1980s, which would soon bring the band to its commercial peak. Since its initial break-up in 1985, the band has reunited several times. The band first released several Top 40 singles in the early 1970s, including a cover of the song "Lookin' for a Love" by The Valentinos (which reached #39 in the Billboard Top 100 in 1971), as well as the single "Give it to me" (which reached #30 in 1973). Their biggest hits included "Must of Got Lost" (which reached #12 in the Billboard Top 100 in 1975), "Love Stinks" which reached #38 in 1980 (and was featured in several films), their single "Freeze-Frame" which reached #4 in the Billboard Top 200 in 1981, as well as the single "Centerfold", which charted to No. 1 in the United States in early 1982.
