When Rhino/Warner Brothers released the 1999 box set, Long Train Running 1970-2000, it was the most comprehensive Doobie compilation ever. But, the long-time fans wanted more rarities and the first-time listeners wanted a single disc of their hits. The Best Of The Doobies Vol.1-2 wasn't enough. So, in 2001, Rhino made another Doobies collection. Greatest Hits is a valued compilation of 20 of their best hits. It sums up their best years from 1970-2000. They are all here, starting with their 1972 hit, Listen To The Music. Some of my favorites are What A Fool Believes, Minute By Minute, Real Love, You Belong To Me, and Takin' It To The Streets. The booklet has a lot of rare photographs and other great information. Buy this with Doobies Choice, which includes album cuts and rarities, before you get any of their albums. If you think you're ready for the box set, Long Train Running 1970-2000, go for it because that's a great one too.

While I am not a particularly big fan of the music of the 1970's one group that stood head and shoulders above the rest was the Doobie Brothers. Led by vocalist Tom Johnston, this group successfully combined elements of rock 'n roll and R&B and made some of the most memorable music of the decade. And despite a rash of personnel changes along the way the group continued to make great music throughout the 1970's.

It did not take long for the group to make its mark on the American music scene. Formed in San Jose, Ca. in 1970, the Doobies found themselves riding high on the Billboard Top Pop Singles Chart when in the fall of 1972 their debut release "Listen To The Music" leaped all the way to #11. Quite an accomplishment! Over the next few years the hits just kept on comin' with memorable songs like "Long Train Runnin'", "Black Water" and "China Grove". What I particularly enjoyed about the Doobie Brothers was that no two songs seemed to sound alike. This was a very innovative group that featured tight harmonies and superior musicianship.

As I mentioned earlier the group was plagued by constant personnel changes which made the fact that their music was so consistantly good all the more remarkable. In 1975, Michael McDonald came aboard to replace Tom Johnston and lent his considerable talents to the group. But the group had a lot of trouble coming up with another big hit. "Takin' It To The Streets" and "It Keeps You Runnin'" were great records but it seemed the public had lost some interest. In late 1978 the group released the album "Minute By Minute". This record was greeted with wild enthusiasm by the public. Not only did it reach #1 on the Billboard Albums chart, but it stayed there for five weeks.

This is by far the best collection of hits by the Doobie Brothers, those prime 1970s purveyors of tuneful California soft rock or boogie pop. Their laid-back radio-friendly grooves never impressed me on the first listen, but had an insidious way of sneaking into one's consciousness so you were soon singing along to addictive songs like China Grove and Listen To The Music. This album is a celebration of timeless tunes, heavenly harmonies and mellow southern California style that is hard to resist.
Their slick but soulful sound has aged gracefully and compares very favorably with today's radio pop. My favorites include the lilting, swaying What A Fool Believes (a massive 1978 hit), Long Train Runnin', Dependin' On You, Black Water and Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me). Their later stuff like 1980's Real Love and the reunion single Doctor from 1989 are also included, making this a comprehensive compilation of their very best work.

I'm not totally against the song selections for this CD (except for the omission(s) of "Sweet Maxine", "Another Park, Another Sunday" and "Disciple"). My real objection concerns the shortened versions of some of the best American rock music ever recorded. True Doobie fans like myself don't appreciate single versions of any of their songs and this supposed best of set has 5 of them!!! "Listen To The Music", "Jesus Is Just Alright", "Nobody", "It Keeps You Runnin'" and "Dependin' On You" deserve to be heard in their entirety not some watered down version designed to get more songs on the CD. In this case more songs are definitely not better!!

you know, i was listening to this album and I forgot just how talented the Doobies really were. Each song is a different style of music that they tried to reach all audiences with. The classsics, It Keeps you Running, Black Water are timeless pieces of music that you can hit the repeat button again and again. I think that Michael McDonald's voice is one of the most recogizable voices in music. I think he reaches his pinnacle in "Minute by Minute", the range he uses as well as some of the backing vocals he lays down really show that he is a master of melody.
It's OK in this day and age to put this CD in your car with the windows down and crank up the volume and sing along with McDonald, who wouldn't want to "be like Mike"-(Jeff Baxter. Anyway, if you purchase this CD, I believe that you will appreciate a truly under appreciated band!!!!!
