Fans of the hard-driving rock of the group's '70s albums will find the sleek sound of Freeze Frame slightly disorienting, but the production gives the album cohesion. With its singalong chorus, "Centerfold" exemplifies this trend, but it's merely the tip of the iceberg.

Hard Driving Man" is slowed to the point of not living up to it's name. But, perhaps the biggest disappointment is "Serves You Right to Suffer", the Howlin' Wolf masterpiece that litterally screams with forlorn rage. Yet, rendered here with a sensitivity that glosses over the power felt in the "Full House" live version. The first J Geils Band album with a mix of originals and covers. The tunes are short and vibrant. I particularly like the cover of Smokey Robinson's and Robert Roger's, "First I Look At The Purse as well as the cover of "Homework. For me this is the most interesting album they recorded, because it showcases a great band without the juvenile excesses of their later work. Geils Band Lyrics. Live Full House Album.

Baby, I'm gonna leave you Honey, don't ask me why Twenty-seven more minutes Before I say bye bye. I'm a hard drivin' man Hard drivin' man Hard drivin' man I'm drivin' just as hard as I can.
