J Geils Band Showtime 1982

Showtime is the third live album to be released by the J Geils Band.

It was recorded at The Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan in September 1982 and quickly released in November 1982.

By this stage, the band were moving away from their home base of blues and R&B to incorporate a classic rock feel to the material. The single Centrefold was a #1 in the USA and a #3 in the UK.

Unlike many live albums, this one has a problem. Inevitably comparisons are made against their too excellent previous live recordings, Full House (1972) and Blow Your Face Out (1975).

This comes up short but it’s still a good live album which, I suspect, could be even better if the full set is ever released.
