Night Music: J. Geils Band, “Wait”

Dedicate this one to David Ortiz, who said “Wait, stop a minute” to Joaquin Benoit last night at Fenway. I remember the day John Miller bounced into our lunch room and told us about hearing the first J. Geils Band album. “Wait” is the first cut on the first side, and it was like (to our young tender ears) like hearing the first Stones’ albums in real time (not after they happened). For a time, an incredible band, and it was hard to blame them later for looking for the purse.
