Ironically, 1979's Best of The J. Geils Band was released just before Geils and company became big stars. But the Boston band once known to fans as "the American Rolling Stones" had been pumping out gritty, R&B-soaked rock 'n' roll all through the '70s, and some of the finest moments of their output are here. The trailblazing rock/reggae fusion of their 1973 single "Give It to Me," their bluesy live take on The Supremes' "Where Did Our Love Go," and a soul-slathered take on The Marvelows' '60s soul/doo-wop merger "I Do" show the band's immersion in American roots music, while "Must of Got Lost" (sic) hints at the pop savvy that would soon result in stardom.
