    J. Geils Band: J. Geils (guitar); Seth Justman (vocals, keyboards); Stephen Bladd (vocals, drums); Peter Wolf (vocals); Magic Dick (harmonica, alto saxophone); Daniel Klein (bass).
    Recorded at Long View Farm, Massachusetts.
    After spending the 1970s as a hard-touring rock band with a few hits sprinkled here and there, the J. Geils Band retooled their sound for 1980's LOVE STINKS. The album resulted in the band's first ever back-to-back set of gold certified albums (1978's SANCTUARY reached the half million mark as well), which showed that in addition to their legion of longtime fans, newer fans were just discovering the band as well.
    Synthesizers became an integral part of the J. Geils Band's sound around this time, making their albums from here on out much more radio friendly. The decade-old band wasn't afraid of the new promo video marketing tool, as several of the tracks were made into short films--the humorous rock of the title track (an early MTV favorite), as well as the almost disco sounds of "Come Back."
