The J. Geils Band (1st LP) by J. Geils Band
Released: Jan 1971
Label: Atlantic Records
Along with early albums from Aerosmith and the E Street Band, J. Geils' 1970 debut established East Coast-style classic rock by fusing Stones-fried bar boogie and guttural blues with doo-wop, urban RnB, Broadway schmaltz and the kind of streetwise jive-talking culture seen in Mean Streets. This isn't heartland rock; this is second-generation Italians, Jews and Irish from Beantown to Jersey getting down in the bell-bottomed '70s. This was their America, and it grooved like a Cadillac El Dorado.
