Tom Johnston's "Another Park Another Sunday" is one of my favourites. A much under recognised song but "China Grove" would probably get my vote as my overall top DB's song.

Nothing but a heartache, is one of the most amazing pieces of music ever written. Livin On The Faultline is the best work by the Doobies. Engineered, and arranged perfectly by Ted Templeman

@Ed D Yes you're right Rick. Pretty song. Similar, intro, harmonies, and off the same album as "Another Park -" but with more of a country flavour, which of course, points directly to Pat Simmonds as writer and singer.

One of my favorite songs too, "Another Park Another Sunday" Another one I love that is similar is "Tell me what you want and I'll give you what you need"

Bassist Tiran Porter is their vocal harmony secret weapon. Porter was fronting his own band when he joined the Doobies. He's a killer bassist and a monster vocalist as well.

Rick. I am so glad you finally examined the Doobie Brothers for us. I have always been in awe of them and you are so right about their awesome sound, panning, left/right and reverb, melodies and harmonies. They like you are our National Treasure. You need to come to Santa Cruz. That is where Ted is. Go to him. Doobies one of the finest bands on the planet in perpetuity. Don’t Stop to Watch the Wheels-best. Also, simple best under played is Eyes of Silver.

When I was little (I mean like from birth throughout my entire childhood) my dad played Doobie Brothers (dad’s a guitar player). With that said, I have always been completely focused on the bass in all music for pretty much all of my life. Never realized where that came from since I was exposed to so much guitar when I was growing up but it makes total sense to me now.

The amazing quality of 70s music, the collection of talent, the vocals, instruments used, how it was all performed and produced so magnificently and brilliantly. And why is it missing in most all of today’s music….

The only thing missing from today's music is... Musicality. It's the same thing over and over again, at least in the so called pop music.

The Tom Johnston era was my fav, especially with the '72-'74 releases of "Toulouse Street", "The Captain and Me" and "What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits". When someone says Doobie Brothers, that's what comes to my mind. But no denying what McDonald brought to the table- arguably one of THE most instantly recognizable voices ever to grace vinyl. Great job Rick, as usual.

Thank you for covering them! The great music of the 70s is why Boomers hate pop today - we were spoiled coming of age in an era of so much great music made by such awesomely talented folks! It's rough to wade through the soulless basic electronified dreck being churned out lately. It is analogous to growing up feasting on delicious choice food, expertly prepared by great chefs, and decades later being invited to a table laid out with mechanically separated potted meats, soylent, and tinny canned veggies and jello salads, and being told "mangia!" - ugh.

Had been to a number of concerts with geriatric R&R-ers, and couldn't wait to leave after about 10 minutes. Heard the DBs in concert for the first time about 2009. Fell in love with rock and roll music at that event. Why? Because this enormous band was filled with people who knew their musical space, could fill up their space without overrunning into another member's space. These guys still sounded like they liked each other after all these years. They worked every facet of the music, did not overdo one single thing, surprised and delighted us every song. I went out and bought my first rock and roll album ever.

@john galyon Yeah, "Up all night I could not sleep, the whiskey that I drank was cheap." That line haunts. From "South City," like fuck Tom, life is that rough for a rock n roll superstar? Right up to "Black Water" the band shoulda been called "Tom Johnston and the Doobies."...The intro to "BW" is so killer. Those "swamp rock" fiddles meshing with guitars. Man, the Doobie Brothers killed it from 1970 to 1980. Tom Johnston handing the baton to Micheal McDonald. Why not,? it's "what a fool believeeeees."

Fantastic! I also grew up loving the Doobies and it was terrific to hear their music broken down and to see Rick's genuine exuberance in particular moments. So human, so "One of us." Even more memorably, the characterization of the 1970's as "Headphone music" because of the way they used stereo is something I never realized was so decade-specific but do absolutely love.

Saw them live in early 70s when I'd only heard 'Listen To The Music' and Jesus is Just Alright. Great spot about 50' from center stage. Needless to say, I was completely blown away and became a huge fan. Broke my heart when Tom Johnson left. I think Don't Stop to Watch the Wheels sounds a lot like Van Halen. Another one of my favorites was Clear as the Driven Snow on the Captain and Me.

I've always loved China Grove. The first time I heard it I was really young and my teenaged brother was listening to it in the living room, combing his very long hair, and he said "I'm going to hear this concert tonight". I didn't even know that was a thing.

I saw them in concert around 1980 in Dallas. One thing that really made them great was bass player, Tiran Porter. That guy was phenomenal and played his own "song within a song" on bass. Super creative. Anyway, Huey Lewis was the opening show and and they were relatively unknown. They blew everyone way. Simply fantastic. Reunion Arena went wild.

I loved it, Rick, when you stated that you "love to turn people on to this tune"! Now this is something you are VERY good at - to make us start loving songs we already knew but weren't much into by making us notice precious details we'd been overlooking all along. For me at least this is the most striking kind of experience I have when watching these spectacular videos in your channel.

I saw them in the Louisiana Superdome in 1978 with the Rolling Stones and Van Halen, and again at a private event in Houston about 10 years ago (oil company Christmas party). They were so good at the private event, and played with great enthusiasm, even there were only a couple thousand people there. The sound was also very good. The show was in a big tent on a parking lot downtown and I stood just a few rows from the stage for the entire show.

I saw "Skunk" play with Eddie Van Halen during a NAMM convention in Anaheim. Eddie was playing a keyboard. They were sponsored by Peavey Amps. I was setting up the Yamaha drums and keyboards booth in the Marriott Hotel just across the hallway from the stage. I made sure the crew had no issues to inhibit the set-up of their stage. After completing the installation of the Yamaha booth, one of the executives from Yamaha was walking with the decorating crew to sign us out when the stage crew invited us to pizza and soda while we're hanging out next to the stage. The Yamaha exec was totally blown away and was all for it! Absolutely could not believe the timing of us getting clocked-out just as their performance was starting! So, what that means is Yamaha was paying me and my co-workers to eat pizza and drink soda while watching Eddie and Skunk jam together, from the Eddie side of the stage! Yamaha exec was so cool that he added a time tip for all of us! How awesome is that!?!

The Doobie Brothers are a perfect band. They are in the same camp as AC/DC and The Allman Brothers Band in that they are the definitive example of a style of music and song crafting. There are just too many praises to sing in their regard. They represent a definition of the word “hyperbole” as it relates to popular music. I consider myself to be incredibly fortunate and blessed that I have their music permanently imprinted deeply in my memory to access at will. They are a critical ingredient in the recipe that is “me”. 👍

Don't stop to watch the wheels , is one of those great songs that seem( to my ear) to start one way and then resolve to a different groove . You have to be a group of very good musicians to do that .

Doobie Brothers brought a joy to music that was fun, innocent and exuberant and full of hope. You can hear it throughout. Their music to me always sounds like a celebration of being grateful just to be alive! For me, this is real music!

You don't need to apologize 👍. The fact that we're talking about it now still shows so much love we have for the Doobie Brothers!

We were all over this as teens in the 70s when these guys were hitting their stride. Saw them in Vancouver BC in around 1974, or 75 I think ....It was the 70s. :) Then there was the early Eagles in the 70s and we never missed an album from them. Straight up honest music.

Probably due to just hearing their hits so many times, my favorite Doobie song is "Losin End". Great McDonald vocal . Mostly keyboard song with great bass. 😎👍

Let's not forget the Kenny Logins influence. Michael and Kenny, arguably two of the best singer songwriters we were blessed to encounter in the 70's and 80's.

What a Fool Believes has an epic quality as it goes from section and key to key. Sounds like an extended jazz-rock piece with a laid-back California vibe. I remember when it came out in the 1970's and as a classical musician I was like "How is this on the hit parade?" Fantastic.

Doobies are so talented. Just seen them live for the first time this last summer in 2022. They are still great!

After watching this video I realize just how many random Doobie Brothers songs get stuck in my head. Every song of theirs has so much spirit and is so undeniably catchy.

Actually my favourite Doobies tune was one they didn’t write called One Step Closer, a vey catchy jazzy tune with a host of musical surprises and modulations. I’ve been humming that one for 40 years…LOL.

'Another Park Another Sunday' One of the best songs and my favorite song that was shunned by the Radio Stations because of the negative lyric line" against radio stations bringing him down; which they do.😀😄

Tiran Porter was so unique among rock bass players. I always appreciated his interpretation of what a bass line needed to be. "Takin' it to the streets" is chief among many examples.

Blackwater was our secret weapon in college while making a friendly wager at pool. We put the song on the old jukebox and our opponents couldn't NoT move to the groove and melodies in Blackwater. In fact the entire bar couldn't help but dance to the Doobies. Glad it came to mind and you included it Rick. Well Done

The chords of the start of Takin’ It To The Streets is more common for piano and gospel than guitar. The pre-chorus declining progression is a key emotional setup, necessary to make the chorus hook a religious experience. McDonalds Christian/Gospel roots is so addictive. Picture a church congregation jumping, singing, dancing, elated by the notion of letting the people love life and free their spiritual emotions. It always make me cry 😂

No Mention of my favourite " Wheels of Fortune " on Taking it to the streets Album. The Words and Rhythm portray & emphasise the stop/start, and up/down of Life's journey. The percussion also powers the Lyrics into the Melody.

I was about to make the same comment! Wheels of Fortune was the first track on the album so if you played the album you couldn’t help but hear it and get into it. 👍🏼

Up until 2005, when Keith passed away, they had 2 drummers. This created a huge sound. A non-radio hit that always will be one of my fav is 'South City Midnight Lady' off the 'What Once Were Vices Are Now Habits' LP.

Damn...I would have purchased the entire bundle ... I am watching this on the replay...darn it, I thought this was a current video. I have always played piano and bass by ear. It comes very easy to me and always has been since I started playing piano at 3 years old. I picked up my Dad’s accordion when I was 10 and 😊taught myself to play it. As well as my my Mom’s harp. If I listen to music, it is typically the 60,s. 70’s and 80’s channel. So many incredible bands came out during that timeframe and I sing along to each song while doing housework!🌟

Rick, brother, you have made me gain a whole new appreciation for how awesome the music I grew up with really is. Doobies have such a great vibe. Remember how different songs like Black Water felt back in the day. Incredible stuff.

Tiran Porter was one of the bass players I had ever head at that time. Of course along with Willy Weeks Every cover band I ever played in the bass players could not believe how great and how hard the bass parts were. If you ever want to humble a bass player tell him to play Tirans parts A great musician.
