Double vinyl LP pressing. As durable as American steel, Northern California’s four-time Grammy┬«-winning Doobie Brothers sound has become part of America’s musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on American Idol, and a fixture on radio formats from top 40 to classic rock. They continue to write and record new material, tour the world, boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, all while breaking new creative ground in the exploration of their musical connection with Nashville. Beginning with their multi-million-selling sophomore collection Toulouse Street (1972), the Doobies have three multi-platinum, seven platinum and 14 gold albums. Their Best of the Doobies (1976) has sold more than 12 million copies – a rare “”diamond record.”” The Doobies propulsive roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven style has sold over 40 million albums. Their No. 1 singles “”Black Water”” (1974) and “”What a Fool Believes”” (1979), both gold, lead a catalog of indelible songs that include “”Jesus Is Just All Right,”” “”Rockin’ Down the Highway,”” “”Long Train Runnin’,”” “”China Grove,”” “”Take Me in Your Arms,”” “”Takin’ it to the Streets””, “”Minute by Minute,”” “”You Belong to Me,”” “”The Doctor”” and more.

Formed in 1969 by Simmons, singer-songwriter-guitarist Tom Johnston, founding drummer John Hartman, and bassist Dave Shogren, the Doobies made their mark with a run of punchy, melodic hits on Warner Bros. Records. They attained radio and chart ubiquity in the late ’70s, when the group’s expanded lineup was augmented by Michael McDonald, whose soaring lead vocals pushed the band to new commercial and critical heights.
