High Quality Pure Analogue 180g Virgin Vinyl LP!
In the wake of Woodstock and the flight of impassioned music groups to the
perhaps most fertile, colorful but also somewhat intellectual decade of rock ’n’
roll, Jerome Geils had clearly found his musical niche. There are not many bands
that could entertain unpretentiously and let loose with his sextet
under his own name to create brash, extrovert rock. The amalgamation of
authentic blues and showy rock ’n’ roll, fed with a fervid veneration of such
blues greats as Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and Chuck Berry was so compelling
that the group could easily have passed as a black band.
Black, earthy and with casually interposed phrases on the befitting harmonica,
the J. Geils Band gives their premiere in the world of the blues with "Wait".
In the very next number ("Ice Breaker") the keyboarder Seth Justman
heats up the
action with a meaty organ groove while 'Magic' Dick Salwitz gives his utmost on
his blues harp with top notes and unbelievable bursts of fire coming from the
realms of rhythm & blues. Not to forget the boss, who launches powerful riffs
and chordal cascades on his guitar. Fans of honest, down-to-earth music from
this era shouldn’t miss out on this debut album.
This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from
the master tapes through to the cutting head.
