If you love Rock & Roll, by which I mean if you have ever danced yourself nearly to death while screaming in primal joy -- then you would have LOVED any show by the J Geils Band during the early 70s. Geils is an underrated guitar player, Magic Dick may be the most amazing harp player in history, and Peter Wolf drove the band hard and kept the crowd whipped to a frenzy. This album captures the band in all their nasty, ragged edged, high energy glory. The sound quality is questionable, but was often questionable even live in small venues they played at the time (this album was recorded at The Cinderella Ballroom in Detroit, a place my adult self would want a series of vaccinations after visiting but which was heaven for my teenaged self). Put it in the CD player, crank it up, and prepare to howl, shake, shimmy and grin! I'd give this one six stars if I could.

Maybe the greatest live rock and roll album ever recorded.

"Back in '72 my college roommate introduced me to this LP and I still play it today. I've seen a lot of rock bands and no one and I mean NO ONE brings it like the J. Geils Band. From "Pack it Fair and Square" to "Lookin' for a Love" you feel like you are actually right there. Detroit was one of the band's favorite places to play and it shows on this, maybe the greatest live rock and roll album ever recorded."
