Earlier, I was listening to “One Last Kiss” by J. Geils Band. It was one of the better songs they put out in the 70s.

It was their debut single for EMI (off their “Sanctuary” album from 1978), and works as a ‘breakup song’ for their time at Atlantic Records, intentional or not. I love the guitar work on the song, it probably ranks as some of Geils’ best.

Apparently, the band was in Jacksonville back in 1975 (during their Atlantic years), supporting the Stones on their tour of North America (technically, both the United States and Canada) that year (it was supposed to include the rest of the Americas, but they weren’t able to tour that much). Supposedly, they were one of the opening acts, along with Atlanta Rhythm Section (a hot local favorite, though this wasn’t during their peak career, despite being formed from two different bands, one of whom was from around here, the Classics IV, known for their versions of classics (excuse the pun) such as “Spooky” (their own version came out at the end of 1967 and was a hit early in 1968), adding lyrics to an instrumental from 1966/1967 by sax player Mike Shapiro (who had recorded it under the stage name of Mike Sharpe); later ARS themselves would redo the song for their “Underdog” album released in 1979) and Rufus (from, where else, Chicago). Of course, this was before my time, when the Gator Bowl was still around, which is now partly contained within TIAA Bank Field.

Of all the bands that have ditched their primary frontmen and continued to tour without them, the J. Geils Band doing this while still calling themselves the J. Geils Band may have been the weirdest, for obvious reasons.

J Geils is the guitarist. Their singer/frontman was Peter Wolf. The best name in the band is, of course, the harmonica player. Don't follow the band, but I don't think it's much different than Van Halen dumping DLR and then Sammy Hagar or the revolving singers in Fleetwood Mac and Santana.

The issue I was getting at was still calling themselves the J. Geils band even though they kicked J. Geils out (and has since died). It would be like the remaining Allman Brothers Band members still touring under that name with Gregg and Duane Allman now both dead.

I forget how it came up, but my brother brought up the live version of Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners and we had to re-listen to it. It's hilariously awful! The voice crack scream at 0:57 is a highlight. :-D

In honour of a warm spring day in Kitchener, I'm listening to one of my favourite summer EP's, Souvenirs by Swimming Tapes. Currently on the song Set the Fire.

Quite by coincidence, in light of recent events, I've been listening a lot to the Emerson, Lake, and Palmer performance of "The Great Gates of Kiev". This is from their "Pictures at an Exhibition" album, based on the original work of classical Russian pianist Modest Mussorgsky.

ELP's progressive rock adaptation added, among other things, vocals to Mussorgsky's purely instrumental work. For "Great Gates of Kiev", the lyrics ended with this lament (with the bombastic pseudo-profundity common in ELP's work):
