Customer Reviews

One and indivisible

This is undoubtably one of the most prolific albums the Doob's ever produced. Michael MacDonald's addition to the band gave them a different sound, but what he brought to the band was a change to be sure, however the sound also brought out new harmonies and allowed Pat and John and the others to expand their musical expertise by letting them play from the heart. It did diverted them from their rock band style but they kept there original sound and harmonics and the infusion of new writing and harmonies made them forever ingrained in the rock and roll hall of music. You cannot separate the two as they rose to the top with MacDonald leading the way. As for Johnson's return, he was energetic but still stumbling from his affliction with drugs, not contributing real material after his insertion back into the band. This band is for all times one of the greatest bands to play together with and without MacDonald.

Never turn down a Doobie . .

Fat Elvis,,Skinny Elvis . . David Lee Roth or Van Hagar ??I like both T.J. and M.M. I was 15 when this came out and was still getting my musical bearings. Older brothers and sisters,,no XM or i-tunes so you took what was out there and "" Oh Oh Oh Listend to the Music"".This is a great album.IMHO.....

Takin to the Streets

The static FM rock of the doobies was actually saved by Macdonalds appearance. The band was floundering and needed help.It was a gutsy move because Michael did not fit the orginal line up per the Doobie Die hards. I liked the doobies hits up to this point but found their albums pedestrian and not worth extended listening. I did college radio back then. With Michael they became more sophisticated. This one is slightly uneven however download "wheek of Fortune" Patrick amd Michael met through" little feat" and the Feats Drummer works well with them on this. Their next tow albums were able to keep them a major player of that time and Thanks to Michael for keeping them alive.

As one of the most popular California pop/rock bands of the '70s, the Doobie Brothers evolved from a mellow, post-hippie boogie band to a slick, soul-inflected pop band by the end of the decade. Along the way, the group racked up a string of gold and platinum albums in the U.S., along with a number of radio hits like "Listen to the Music," "Black Water," and "China Grove." The roots of the Doobie Brothers lie in Pud, a short-lived California country-rock band in the vein of Moby Grape featuring...
