Nightmares…And Other Tales From The Vinyl Jungle
The J. Geils Band may have seen more success in the 1980s, but ask a true fan about their earlier Atlantic recordings and they'll talk your ear off. NIGHTMARES … AND OTHER TALES FROM THE VINYL JUNGLE captures the bad boys from Boston in their '70s prime on eight Peter Wolf-Seth Justman originals (and a cover of Andre Williams' “Funky Judge” with a cameo by old-time comedian George Jessel). Cut in New York with Eagles producer Bill Szymczyk, this action-packed set delivers on every level, from heart-wrenching ballads (“I'll Be Coming Home”) to party-starters (“Stoop Down #39”) to an actual hit single (“Must of Got Lost”). Pulsing with the intense energy of a J. Geils Band concert, NIGHTMARES … AND OTHER TALES FROM THE VINYL JUNGLE is a dream come true.
