Peter Wolf Throws House Party InTheStudio  For Two J. Geils Band Classics: Bloodshot, Nightmares...

Dallas, TX - April 21, 2014.  InTheStudio.Net, the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio show InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands throws down two consecutive Seventies albums, Bloodshot and Nightmares... from Boston's beloved J Geils Band. 

Formed in 1967, the J Geils Band made a name for themselves as an incredible jump blues band. Music writers loved the Boston-based band for several reasons, not least of which was the unabashed authenticity that the all-white sextet brought to indigenous American black blues and R&B songs without the homogenization which usually diluted similar British attempts. And then there was the J. Geils Band's live show, which quickly became legendary.

Their first live album, Full House got significant national FM airplay which set up their next studio album in 1973, Bloodshot, exhibiting improved fuller sound courtesy of James Gang (later Eagles) producer Bill Szymczyk, and delivering their first Top 10 album and Top 40 single, 'Give It To Me'.

Forty years ago next month, J.Geils Band released Nightmares ... and other tales from the vinyl jungle building off their rise in popularity and delivering the rock radio fave 'Detroit Breakdown' and their first big hit 'Must of Got Lost'.

Peter Wolf, in conversation with InTheStudio host Redbeard, remembers the key to the appeal of the J. Geils Band. 

'To really understand Geils records, you had to have seen the show... Our shows were like house parties. You come and get crazy, were going to get TWICE as crazy.'
