On February 24th, Eagle Rock Entertainment will issue the first ever release of House Party Live In Germany - the classic Rockpalast concert from The J. Geils Band - on DVD+CD and Digital Audio. A video for "One Last Kiss" from the upcoming release can be found below.
The year was 1979. The J. Geils Band were touring Europe in support of the Sanctuary album and its hit single “One Last Kiss”, when they made a pit stop in Essen, Germany to perform on the famed television series Rockpalast. Filmed on April 21st at the Grugahalle, the aptly-named House Party Live In Germany features The J. Geils Band delivering their brand of raw, raucous, R&B-soaked; rock ‘n’ roll in a solid 14-song set. The first half of the concert focuses on material from Sanctuary, while the second half blasts through earlier breakthrough hits, like “Looking For A Love”, “Give It To Me” and “Ain’t Nothing But A House Party”.
In the 70s, The J. Geils Band developed a reputation for their faithful devotion to down-n-dirty bar blues (while most of their contemporaries drew more heavily from British blues-rock and psychedelia). As time progressed, their sound expanded into new directions and acquired more pop influences, leading them to score massive crossover appeal and commercial success with their 1981 album Freeze Frame and its smash hit “Centerfold”. House Party Live In Germany catches the band just before that key turn in the band’s career.
