Biography

There's no separating the unparalleled legacy of the Doobie Brothers from their upcoming HOR Records release World Gone Crazy – not that anyone would want to. Nevertheless, the new album may be most remarkable for the extent to which it stands completely on its own. Yes, World Gone Crazy is another chapter in one of the great American music stories, but it's neither comeback nor ... Read more in Amazon's Doobie Brothers Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One would be hard-pressed to find a band more perfectly symbolic of the good-times politics-be-damned esprit de cannabis that symbolized a good chunk of 70's rock. While the Beach Boys were busy becoming an anachronism, the Doobs effectively took their mantle, fusing an array of musical Americana--be it blues, country, folk, or gospel (they saved jazz and funk for their Michael McDonald-fronted incarnation)--into a remarkably popular string of albums and radio hits by simply asking not much more of us than to "Listen to the Music." And if they didn't get much more controversial than to declare "Jesus Is Just Alright," well, that was kind of the point. This Rhino anthology is typically exhaustive. All the familiar radio hits are here, as well as a good sampling of deep catalog from the band's various line-ups, not to mention a few standout Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons solo outings. Hardcore Doobie Bros. fans should be especially pleased by the fourth disc, which contains a wealth of outtakes and demos from the band's early '70s and '80s prime. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars A box full of good stuff March 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
70's music has become my favorite period of music. In an era of great singers and bands like The Eagles, Carly Simon, Steve Miller Band, the Doobie Brothers are one of my favorites, and while they may not have been anything revolutionary with the genre, they did very well. No major politics or religous preachings, the Doobies were about good fun and good music. LONG TRAIN RUNN'IN is a Doobie Brothers box set with 4 discs full of music, a large booklet of info and pictures. The first 3 of 4 discs are divided up for the most part among the band periods. The first being the early rock n' roll with country mix thrown in, the second being the closing of their rock sound (which never sounded better again) and getting into more of a groove with Michael McDonald joining and the band reaching their highest point ever. The third album closes up the smooth sounds of Michael McDonald and repoens the group with almost the same lineup as they did on the Toulhouse St album + roadie turned conga player Bobby LaKind for what sadly could be called their two "bad 80's albums". (Hey, I like the Cycles album and Brotherhood is tolerable, but neither one touches Stampede or The Captain and Me, even on their best day). An addition at the end is only available on a japanese import of the Sibling Rivalry disc, which is their cover of "Little Bitty Pretty One" Some of the tracks on these discs denote a "single release" in which things like extra singers (HERE TO LOVE YOU) are added or the song is shorter, in the case of WHEELS OF FORTUNE much shorter.
As I said a fourth disc is included which is the true gem of the album which includes rare cuts, demos and unreleased songs mostly from the groups beginings. Many are recorded complete with mistakes and talk from a crew or band member.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice box set for the critical underdogs of rock July 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Although they never garnered the critical praise of The Band, Mott the Hopple, CCR there were few bands that could hold a candle to the hit making strength of The Doobie Brothers. This collection gathers up a healthy sampling of their singles, best album tracks and rarities in a four disc set. While I would have paired back the selections from the band's weakest albums (including the awful "One Step Closer") (hence 4 stars), this collection doesn't skimp on the band's worthwhile output from their peak years.

Sound quality is exceptional with a crisp detailed sound not heard before. Since fans will probably be familair with the bulk of the tracks here I'm only going to focus on the fourth disc with the bonus tracks. We get a number of good demos including Pat Simmons' "Daughters of the Sea","Four Days Gone", "Pat's Song"; Tom Johnston's "Osborne" (an early version of "Long Train Runnin'), "Lovin' My Way Back Home", "Peace in the Valley" all of which are strong tunes. "Bluejay" is also quite good and with "Peace in the Valley" one of the highlights here. It's a pity these songs never showed up on an album before now. "Armadillo Death Chang" is interesting as well--Johnston appears to have had a problem with song titles much like George Harrison in many cases as the title has absolutely nothing to do with this rockin' tune.

"Outside of Barstow" is a demo with just Johnston and his guitar and, again, is a terrific little song that should have been revisited. "Spiel" is a John Hartman composition (the only solo composing credit the drummer received)that's really more of a joke track. I haven't listened to "Olana" in a while but this studio version of the Michael McDonald track is better than the live version from the 1983 final tour recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back In The Daze #6 February 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The Doobie Brothers developed a loyal following from the git-go, playing bars and hang-outs in San Jose and in the Santa Cruz Mountains. With their first single, "Nobody," they garnered both AM and FM airplay in the San Jose and San Francisco markets, and it's a befitting start to a definitive Doobies' collection. While the set, "Long Train Runnin'" is the ultimate statement on the band, it's also a story filled with switchyards and derailments making for a somewhat uneven listen. The sound is a vast improvement over the regular releases, it's in chronological order, the rarities are separated from the classic cuts, and Rhino has even gone one step - further - by including the single versions of several hits (with overdubs and edits that discriminating fans will appreciate). As academically it's a great box, the track audibly bends, as hearing the highs and the lows of the Tom Johnston and Michael McDonald eras, coupled by a questionable comeback, makes for a slow train ride. Fans of the early rockin' Doobies will find many of their album favorites denied passage on this journey, and the McDonald fans will wish they'd taken a cab or limo instead, as either of the two "Greatest Hits" collections will have gotten them there in half the time. However, if you've enjoyed the Doobie Brothers in their many incarnations, then, indeed, "listen to the music," without qualification, and without apology. For if anyone asks, you can always say you listened, but you didn't inhale.

But, please tell me, who comes with the idea to make this horrible cd-covers?. Too cheap to get real artists to make a special box set?. Same happened with Zeppelin, and BeachBoys. Read more

I saw the Doobies with Chicago in 2008 and fell in love with them all over again. So much fun and so many memories are tied to these songs. It's like a wonderful trip back in time.
