Editors’ Notes

The easy-rolling "Must of Got Lost" <sic>—The J. Geils Band's biggest hit of the '70s—is this 1974 album's calling card. Like that tune, most of the record finds the group playing to their strengths as a gritty, greasy, R&B-based outfit, whether on the frenetic, hard-grooving workout "Detroit Breakdown" or the cover of Bull & The Matadors' good-time '60s hit "Funky Judge." But touches like the strange, exotica-tinged interlude "Nightmares," the funk-flamenco feel of "I'll Be Coming Home," and the elaborate opening of "Gettin' Out" hint at the subtle-but-significant changes the band had gone through since their raw, blues-based beginnings.

Customer Reviews

Why the wrong version?

On the original album Musta Got Lost was a 5 minute long song. After the edit fades there was another 2 minutes of music. WHERE IS IT?!

Must have gotten lost...

This is some really fun music!! So, why the heck did they chop off the wailing organ solo at the end of "Musta Got Lost" ("Must of Got Lost")? That's my favorite part of the song! Yet it's nowhere to be found, except on the vinyl copies of this album. :-( Who wants to get the truncated single version of a song when you buy an album? A CD can hold nearly twice what an LP can, and downloadable audio has no real time constraint at all. What's the deal?


So back in the day this album & the Average White Band album were smokin hot to party to. Friends that didn't dance were up shakin their groove thing. GRINDING HOT FUNKY ROCK was the only way I could describe this album. One of my personal faves. Brings back so many memories...I'd love to see the band play one more time!

The J. Geils Band was one of the most popular touring rock & roll bands in America during the '70s. Where their contemporaries were influenced by the heavy boogie of British blues-rock and the ear-splitting sonic adventures of psychedelia, the J. Geils Band was a bar band pure and simple, churning out greasy covers of obscure R&B, doo wop, and soul tunes, cutting them with a healthy dose of Stonesy swagger. While their muscular sound and the hyper jive of frontman Peter Wolf packed arenas across...
