Ladies Invited by J. Geils Band
Released: Jan 1973
Label: Rhino Atlantic
On their initial output, J. Geils possessed a raunchy style somewhere between the Stones and vintage Aerosmith. But on 1973's Ladies Invited, the band tempered its aggression with compressed production and a pop-funk vibe more in line with the E Street Band, Hall and Oates, Steely Dan and Brit pub rockers such as Brinsley Schwarz. It's all very mid-'70s and very urban. That said, few bands write better barroom ballads than J. Geils. Crank up "That's Why I'm Thinking of You" and pass out crying.
