Info from 1000Dances site: The songs are taken from various radio shows and were recorded in 1974. So, I listened to more than 6 hours of the same shows to find the best sounding tracks. All tracks were cleaned of surface/white noises. Then a ‘Sound morph’ filter was applied to make the whole thing sounds as only one show. The setlist was build by the Hotline members on this topic. The show was available to download during the whole month of August 2005 for the Hotline members.
01. Southside Shuffle (4’04)
Very nice version with a soulful Peter Wolf on the opening. The very end of the song is heavily doctored as the DJ spoke over it. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, Nov 3rd, 1974.
02. Gettin’ Out (5’14)
Just forgotten how great this song is. Rare stuff as it was never released on any official live album. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, Nov 3rd, 1974.
03. Musta Got Lost (4’50)
A quite short L.O.V.E. intro in the beginning. Nice sound. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, Nov 3rd, 1974
04. Chimes (11’15)
The stereo mix was wrong on this one with a very low left channel. Corrected using a back to mono-stereo again conversion. It sounds OK now. This version is longer than the ‘Blow Your Face Out’ one with a wonderful guitar solo. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, in ??/??/1974.
05. Looking For A Love (5’55)
Nice 6 minutes version of the song with the complete slow intro. You can hear J. Geils tuning his guitar in the back at the very beginning of the song. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, ??/??/1974
06. Serves You Right To Suffer (13’23)
Long and nice version of the song with powerful guitar and keys. Peter Wolf growls with the guitar in the middle of the song. Ooh yeah ! Unknown date and venue but it must the Cobo Hall, Detroit, 1974.
07. Whammer Jammer (2’42)
A rare jazz intro for this version of ‘Whammer Jammer’. Unknown date and venue but it must the Cobo Hall, Detroit, 1974.
08. (Ain’t Nothin’ But A) Houseparty (5’11)
A classic and powerful version of the song. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, Nov 3rd, 1974.
09. Detroit Breakdown (5’40)
Great sound with some of wah-wah effect on DK’s bass. Recorded at the Cobo Hall, Detroit, Nov 3rd, 1974.
10. Give It To Me (6’55)
11. Back To Get Ya (2’11)
Rare ‘Give It To Me’ / ‘Back To Get Ya’ medley with a percussion solo in-between. The same kind of solo was showcased in ‘Postcards’. Unknown date and venue but it must the Cobo Hall, Detroit, 1974.
12. First I Look At The Purse (5’25)
