Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes - The Fever

Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes are a very good R&B bar band essentially, with a nice size horn section, from the Jersey shore who came from the same scene as Bruce Springsteen. Miami Steve Van Zandt, Little Steven now, was a member before joining the E Street Band but he ended up being the Jukes producer and main songwriter as well during their 70's heyday. I guess he was a little busy at the time. The Fever has always been a favorite of mine by Southside Johnny with it's Stax/Volt feel with lots of horns and big, layered background vocals over a nice groove and it is another fine song written by that Springsteen fellow mentioned earlier.
