I don't dislike those songs, but from what I'm reading, they have a pretty good legacy beyond those two songs.
Their live album "Full House".

Loved this band back in the day. They were too short-lived. I didn't like their 'Centerfold' hit but their full albums were really great. In fact, I still have my LP from the day - it's red.

May Mr. Geils RIP. I really enjoy the band. I must listen to some of their tunes later on today.

I'd completely forgotten about "Give It To Me" - that's my favourite!

Try "Give It To Me". I'd forgotten all about that song, until I did a quick search and found this list - Top 10 J. Geils Band Songs
