Glad to be here. Liking the tracks so far.

So many tributes this year and last. So sad. But we'll always have the music, and it's good to hear it.

I was craving italian ices like mad today @UncleMichael lemon, cherry or rainbow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:27pm efd:

I think that can be arranged, UM. Live or studio? (though if the live is super-long that may rule it out anyway)
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:27pm Switchblade Batman:

Ooh live? Who's playing tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

I think the Blow Your Face Out version is 10 times hotter than the studio. Not sure about the length.
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:28pm Mailman Tom:

Sno-Cone was one of their best songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:29pm efd:

length is manageable!

J-Geils goes reggae in '73? Way ahead of the curve! Thanks for the tribute Evan, looking forward to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:32pm coelacanth∅:

this track still holds up beautifully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:33pm efd:

whoa whoa whoa, slow down Dave in SoDak! That is bizarre!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:33pm coelacanth∅:

hi Evan; Funklettes
...so, by the look of the playlist so far, does this mean you're only going to play the really good and excellent J Giels Band?
(before they tarnished their reputation with "love stinks" etc.)
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:33pm Dave in SoDak:

right? weird but true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:33pm Uncle Michael:

So, the one time I saw the JGB live was in Clay Pigeon's neck of the woods. It was at the fairgrounds in Des Moines, IA in 1975. They were second on the bill, after Pure Prairie League and before Foghat and Santana. When Wolf started doing mic stand pole vaults, I was all in.
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:34pm Dave in SoDak:

Filmed in Mpls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:34pm efd:

coel, your observation is correct (though I still kinda like "Love Stinks")
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:37pm coelacanth∅:

haha! well, what established rock band didn't start "slipping", shall we say, toward the late 70s, after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:37pm Bootsie:

LOVE STINKS had some great tunes; "Night Time," "Come Back,""No Anchovies, Please"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:38pm Bootsie:

Ditto FREEZE FRAME, especially "River Blindness."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:39pm Uncle Michael:

THANK YOU!

17-year-old me was obsessed with "Angel In Blue," of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:40pm common:

Thanks evan
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:41pm coelacanth∅:

hmm - "come back" is making "i may have liked that one" sparks in my head; but i don't remember it. (maybe i'm mixing it up with the thin lizzy song?)
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:41pm Mailman Tom:

Mucho Gracias
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:43pm Bootsie:

@coelacanth∅ perhaps Evan will play it...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:45pm efd:

I saw Greg Cartwright commenting on Facebook about J. Geils last night, and this song sounds very Reigning Sound-ish to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:45pm efd:

Not to mention they had a song with the same (or very similar) title
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:46pm efd:

surprise Love Stinks track after all! Not "Come Back," though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:47pm Bootsie:

OH YEAH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:47pm Bootsie:

Still killer.
Avatar    Wed. 4/12/17 9:48pm Matt F:

This version of Night Time really holds up! I remember it was a WBCN staple, heard it long before I heard the Strangeloves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:48pm pantz:

This is the show America needs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:49pm Uncle Michael:

I don't think there's a song this band covered that I didn't hear before the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:49pm coelacanth∅:

oh,okay... i did like this one. i just put the record on the shelf one day and forgot about it.
happy to be reminded that the hits didn't fully represent what they were still capable of.
  Wed. 4/12/17 9:53pm Brian in New Orleans:

man what a great show!!!! Love Geils and am from Boston ...thanks WBCN OOPS I mean WFMU...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:53pm efd:

I've done that with too many records myself, coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:53pm efd:

Brian, being from Boston myself I'll take that as a high compliment! :)
  Wed. 4/12/17 9:54pm Stevel:

What a set!
  Wed. 4/12/17 9:55pm Brian in New Orleans:

thanks EFD...maybe we bumped heads at a "Gang Green'' show at the RAT

This is the tribute I was looking for. Thanks, efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

Yes.
- i'm Thankful there's someone at fmu who knows how good J Giels was.
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:57pm Chop Scott:

College time '80's in Boston I worked as a doorman for the condo Magic Dick lived in. Spent a fair bit of late night time in good chat. I think I still have a Dave Dyke and the Blazers I never gave back.
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 9:58pm Joe B:

Until this week, Rage in the Cage was the most played J Geils Band song on WFMU (covering only from 2001 when the playlist system came in). Guessing that won't be the case for long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/12/17 9:59pm chad from oregon:

I hope that efd might have a tribute to the now late mother of Dave Letterman tonight. Maybe a song about pies?
  Wed. 4/12/17 10:01pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I thought Tom Petty's "Don't Do me Like That " was J .Geils for years
  Wed. 4/12/17 10:03pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I didn't have a strong opinion about J. Giles ,then saw them live in 75' and they blew me away
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 10:03pm coelacanth∅:

i'm grateful i had an older brother who was pretty hip. he got full house when it came out and it ripped me open, a little more.
  Wed. 4/12/17 10:04pm Nate K:

I watched a video of a cover "Where Did Our Love Go" last night that was amazing. With you on the live albums, EFD.
Avatar Wed. 4/12/17 10:05pm Joe B:

Their version of I Do was a minor hit, made their best of LP. but it became a bigger hit in 83 when it was the single off the live album Showtime

Went to see J. Geils at the Garden in 198?. Drank a bottle of Jack before they went on and passed out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 10:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Growing up in NewHampshuh here, in the cultural media reach of Bawstin - J. Geils were definitely a thing. Deffo one of those bands that informed us of the R&B originals they covered - back before interwebz & everything being available all the time...& of course legendary for bringing it Live...Peter Wolf was a legendary Bawstin DJ going back even earlier, wasn't he??
  Wed. 4/12/17 10:14pm Carmichael:

Yeah, I heard that. I thought J Geils may have passed ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/12/17 10:15pm efd:

J. Geils did pass, Carmichael, sorry to say.
