Music Single : Peter Wolf – I Stole Some Love

download (49)

Peter Wolf is one of my all time favorite artists in this music thing we do. Was there ever a better front man? I don’t think so. We all know him from the J Geils Band (or do we?). Wolf and J. Geils turned me onto a whole bunch of soul/blues music.

Here’s Wolf stealing a little love courtesy of Don Covay. He gets into it and kills it. Gives it the Wolf treatment. Crank it up and feel what Peter’s feeling. Soul to the max by a guy that always gives it his all.

You get a good taste of what he’s about on this tune. He does his rap thing about going to see his baby. He really gets the guts of Covay’s song. Man does this sound good! Listen to how he builds and then takes the song out. Love it! Check it out and get a treat. Two very cool guys come together to make some real good music. If they still make music like this PLEASE TELL ME! Do they still make people like Peter Wolf?

( This is a case of someone paying respect to one of his influences. Check out any and everything by Wolf then find some Don Covay. There’s a great tribute to him by some very cool diverse artists called ‘Back To The Streets’)

    Good stuff. Never listening to Peter Wolf or the J. Geils Band. Thanks for the introduction, going on the list as I type.

    Man Centerfold is still played all the time on radio! FreezeFrame as well. First time I ever heard of J Geils was 1980 when I was 14 and riding the bus to school and a girl was playing Love Stinks and The Clash’s Train In Vain over and over as she got dumped! haha

    I added a few ha has’ after yours. Those cuts came after I was entrenched in the band. Different direction but still Geils. It was good to see them make a few bucks on those cuts. A sense of humor which Wolf has loads of. Just thought of another Wolf cut he covered of Nilsson. You want a break up song check this out.

    Do they still make people like Peter Wolf? That’s a good question and I wish I had the answer. I don’t follow the music scene like I used to.

    Here’s one guy I know is good. Nathaniel Raitliff. Have you heard his music?

    Shamekiah Copeland is great.

    Oh, man, I had not known that tune but love that soul vibe – very cool!

    Peter Wolf is a great performer. I’ve had the fortune to see him twice: the first time several years ago with J. Geils Band (sans J. Geils but still great) and the second time last year where he was a special guest during Lynyrd Skynyrd’s farewell tour. He was fantastic during both gigs.

    This puts me in the mood to hear some more of Wolf’s music!

      I’ve been listening to him for many moons. I was glad to see him and the band get some commercial success later in career. But i lean towards this Wolf style the most. Some of the best live shows I seen were those early Geils gigs. Later ones were also good.

    Their “Full House” live album from 1972 is killer!

    Nothing not to love about Peter Wolf. He still lives here in the Boston area. Plays around here a lot but outside of Geils haven’t seen his solo act. One day.

      Catching Wolf locally might be a bit of a get back to the bar days. I would join you for sure. Stripped down and none of the nonsense from those mega concert events. I think that’s where we belong Doc.

        Looks like he’s playing way up in Maine over the holidays. After that, no bookings. I probably should see him and not take him for granted. I saw Jay Geils at a local venue with a jazz-blues band a while before he passed away.

        I haven’t seen them since way back before all the ‘Freeze Frame’ stuff. I do and have picked up a lot of Wolfs stuff along the way. I’d go see him in a heartbeat. Like I said, I’ll meet you there. We’ll shake the kinks out.

        And then we’ll go see The Kinks if they regroup and tour.

      He’s a bit of a walking jukebox. He just loves music. I know you have the “funk bone’. You might want to check out that tribute to Don Covay. Iggy does a killer version of ‘Sookie Sookie’

      Maybe more soul but you know what I mean. I think all those guys like Iggy were listening to him.
