The J. Geils Band: The J. Geils Band (Atlantic)

Todd Everett, Phonograph Record, February 1971

VARIOUS MEMBERS of the J. Geils Band have been playing around, separately or together, in the Boston area for a number of years. It's rumored that this is the third album they've put together for Atlantic, the first two not having been released. Whether or not that's true, this album is worth the wait. It's also worth dropping everything and running down to your local record dealer, and special-ordering if necessary (at the moment, the record company isn't pushing it, particularly).
