J. Geils Band
"Nightmares...and other tales from the vinyl jungle" (Vinyl)
This is an interesting band. Now known for its hits that would happen a decade later, at this point (in 1974) J. Geils was looking for a way to forge their own identity after being known as a cover band of R&B and Blues tunes in Boston bars.
This is their first album of original tunes (except for one cover) and preserves the band as a group of energetic, tight blues/funk musicians albeit perhaps not that inspired or creative.
