Description

Music video by J. Geils Band performing Land Of A Thousand Dances (Live). 

Showtime! is the 13th album (and third live album) by American rock band The J. Geils Band, released in 1982. It was recorded in Detroit, Michigan, and proved commercially successfully but most critics consider it to be weaker than the group's two earlier live albums "Live" Full House (1972) and Blow Your Face Out (1976). This was the last release by the band before frontman Peter Wolf left the band.

"Land of a Thousand Dances" (or "Land of 1000 Dances") is a song written and first recorded by Chris Kenner in 1962. The song is famous for its "na na na na na" hook, which was added by Cannibal & the Headhunters in their version of the song in 1965, whose version peaked at number thirty. The song's best-known version was Wilson Pickett's 1966 recording on his album, which became an R&B #1 and his biggest ever pop hit. Some releases of the song credit Antoine "Fats" Domino as a co-author of the song with Kenner. Domino had agreed to record the song in exchange for half of the song's royalties
