03 – Love Stinks – 04/27/80 – Great Gildersleeves – New York City, NY – Playing as Juke Joint Jimmy & His House Party Rockers…real tiny club, w/3-D. A 12 inch Promo Pic Sleeve record was released by EMI America featuring a live version of ‘Love Stinks’ recorded at this concert.
Info from 1000Dances site: It was for a while the oldest recording we used to know (with some never released songs like the B.B. King cover). But the show recorded in Montreal in 1968 is even older than this one. Some classics Geils covers are already here and some of their live tricks too. It’s the oldest live recording with one ot their own song : ‘It Ain’t What you Do (It’s How You Do It)’. Oddly, this song won’t be released until their second LP. Sadly, there are some rough cuts. On ‘Raise Your Hands’ another singer (possibly Stephen Joe Bladd) shares the vocals with Peter Wolf. Some unusual horns (harp ?) are played on the tune, perhaps by Magic Dick.
