R&B-based blues-rock band J. Geils Band discovered relatively unlikely success in the early 1980s, peaking with the #1 pop hit "Centerfold." SHOWTIME!, culled from a live concert in Detroit in 1982, captures both sides of the band, the gritty and the glamorous, ending in a frenzy of the Motown-reflecting "I Do," the pure-bubblegum fun of the abovementioned "Centerfold," and the band's unbridled take on Wilson Pickett's classic "Land of a Thousand Dances."
