The J. Geils Band: Hard Drivin' Sweet Soundin' Rock and Roll

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 20 January 1973

TAKE A LOOK at the cover of the first J. Geils Band album on Atlantic. The sleeve itself simply contains two plain, no-nonsense black-and-white photographs of this straggly bunch of rough-housers dressed up in leather, shades and polka-dot shirts, staring out exuding zombie-like studied cool.

Total word count of piece: 1900
