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

There's no separating the unparalleled legacy of The Doobie Brothers from their upcoming release "World Gone Crazy." The Doobie Brothers have honored the broader, 40-year band's legacy with a new studio album that grows in unexpected directions. Founding members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons are joined by longtime members John McFee and Mike Hosack. Ted Templeman, the producer behind the band biggest hits and other classics(Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Carly Simon, etc) returns to reignite the special chemistry that audiences have embraced for the past four decades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to form for the Doobies September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
A terrific album from the Doobies, "World Gone Crazy" finds both Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons turning in some of their finest songs in this reunion with long time producer Ted Templeman. Johnston has some of his finest songs here in quite some time and the deluxe edition bonus track "New York Dream" with its R&B horn arrangement is essential for Doobies fans. The band's remake of "Nobody" (from their very first album) also sparkles with a new guitar intro that Simmons and John McFee came up with for the song. Johnston's voice has deepened a bit with time and the arrangement/performance here along with Johnston's vocal improve on the original version.

Former Doobie Michael McDonald provides harmony and background vocals on Pat Simmons' "Don't Say Goodbye" while Willie Nelson co-writes and sings with Pat on "I Know We Won". Both are terrific songs from Simmons and this is probably the best album with both Johnston and Simmons in the line up since "Stampede". Having Ted Templeman in the chair as producer makes all the difference since he instinctively plays to the band's strengths (as he always has). The mastering for this disc is pretty good avoiding the harsh compression of many contemporary releases.

The DVD includes a short documentary on the band co-directed by Pat Simmons. While it includes some terrific vintage footage and interviews with Simmons, Johnston, McFee and McDonald (as well as brief snippets of the band when they appeared on the TV show "What's Happening!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Doobie Brothers Once Again!!!! September 30, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
In 1973, I watched the Doobie Brothers in concert at the Coliseum in Indianapolis, as a warm-up band for Rod Stewart & Faces. I had become familiar with their music through the "Toulouse Street" & "The Captain And Me" 8-tracks prior to that concert, and couldn't wait for them to take the stage. They kicked a** that night, and I was hooked as a true fan of their signature sound. "What Were Once Habits..." and "Stampede" continued to perfect this sound and bring us many hours of listening pleasure. Then, Tom Johnston became ill and Mike McDonald stepped in. Suddenly, the core was no longer the Doobie Brothers, but had become a back-up band for Mike McDonald (Jazz and R&B)and Skunk Baxter (Steely Danish) stylings. It was good for the masses, but true Doobieites wished for the originals to return to the rock & roll roots and signature sound they were known for.

Since "Cycles", they have been trying to accomplish this. Finally, "World Gone Crazy" is an example of what years of effort can achieve. After you get by the Jimmy Buffett toned "A Brighter Day" (nice, but not traditional Doobies), kickin' tail rock & roll makes it appearance in full return. When I saw that Mr. McDonald joined in on "Don't Say Goodbye", I was fearful. Yet the song still carries traditional Doobieistic sound. Even Willie Nelson (on "I Know We Won") can't detract from the fact that this is the Doobies at their best.

If you've ever like the true Doobie Brothers of old, don't miss out on this addition to their discography. Instead, add it to your rotation and indulge yourself to the fact that history can and does repeat itself ... sometimes (as in this case) for the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doobie fans rejoice! September 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fans of The Doobie Brothers will certainly want to grab a copy of their new album, "World Gone Crazy", as soon as they can. The Brothers are at their eclectic best again with a variety of songs that offer something for every musical taste. The album is produced by Ted Templeman, the man who was responsible for the great Doobie albums from the decade of the '70s. He hasn't lost his touch and his involvement in the production in the album is evident. Templeman makes everyone sound great on the album and has produced a quality of sound that is light, clear, and stereophonically superior. On this album, the emphasis is on singing and playing, with less from the horn section that has been part of the more recent Doobie live albums. Another nod to their work from the '70s. These guys are great musicians and are a joy to listen to.

Lead singers, Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, haven't lost a step and share the vocals throughout the album. Both singers are in fine form and sound terrific. The addition of Michael McDonald on harmony on the cut, "Don't Say Goodbye" and Willie Nelson, the co-writer and performer on "I Know We Won" are great touches. Marc Russo on sax and Guy Allison on keyboards both have their moments to shine on the album.

The album has 13 great cuts (if you get the version with the 2 bonus cuts), but in this reviewer's humble opinion, the strongest songs are the ones that sound the most like the Doobies from the days of "Stampede", "Toulouse Street" and "...Vices", which are "Chateau", "Nobody" (redone from the very first Doobie album), and the superior title cut.

Thanks to HOR Records for bringing the "Brothers" back one more time!
