For their first two studio albums (1970's self titled debut and 1971's THE MORNING AFTER), the J. Geils Band peppered the track list with a healthy dose of covers in addition to original compositions. After issuing 1972's LIVE FULL HOUSE, an exhilarating live album, J. Geils returned with their third studio release one year later.
The gold-certified BLOODSHOT only features one cover song this time around--the old Showstoppers hit "Ain't Nothin' But A House Party," a great album opener and a subsequent live favorite. Also included is the hit single "Give it to Me," and the uptempo "Southside Shuffle."
