1 Star - Poor - "...LADIES INVITED was a mighty disappointment upon its September 1973 release and hasn't worn well since....Even the wildly creative blowing of virtuoso blues harpist Magic Dick, a one-man sax section, fails to save the day."
The J. Geils Band was cruising along in the early 1970s on the strength of their blazing live show, as well as a string of moderately successful albums, including BLOODSHOT and THE MORNING AFTER. 1973's LADIES INVITED continued the band's musical direction of blues-rock and soulful ballads, and was the first J. Geils release to not include a cover song.
While the album didn't spawn any bonafide hit singles, there are still plenty of standouts, particularly the Stonesy ballad "That's Why I'm Thinking of You" and the Black Crowes-ish rocker "Lay Your Good Thing Down." LADIES INVITED remains one of the J. Geils Band's more underrated albums.
