The Doobie Brothers' third long-player was the charm, their most substantial and consistent album to date, and one that rode the charts for a year. It was also a study in contrasts, Tom Johnston's harder-edged, bolder rocking numbers balanced by Patrick Simmons' more laid-back country-rock ballad style. The leadoff track, Johnston's "Natural Thing," melded the two, opening with interlocking guitars and showcasing the band's exquisite soaring harmonies around a beautiful melody, all wrapped up in a midtempo beat – the result was somewhere midway between Allman Brothers-style virtuosity and Eagles/Crosby & Nash-type lyricism, which defined this period in the Doobies' history and gave them a well-deserved lock on the top of the charts. Next up was the punchy, catchy "Long Train Runnin'," a piece they'd been playing for years as an instrumental – a reluctant Johnston was persuaded by producer Ted Templeman to write lyrics to it and record the song, and the resulting track became the group's next hit.

The Doobies team up with the Memphis Horns for an even more Southern-flavored album than usual, although also a more uneven one. By this time, Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons, and company had pretty well inherited the mantle and the core (and then some) of the audience left behind by Creedence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty, with Johnston songs like "Pursuit on 53rd Street," "Down in the Track," and "Road Angel" recalling pieces like "Travelin' Band," while Simmons' "Black Water" (their first number one hit) evoked the softer side of the "swamp rock" popularized by CCR…

With Tom Johnston gone from the lineup because of health problems, this is where the "new" Doobie Brothers really make their debut, with a richly soulful sound throughout and emphasis on horns and Michael McDonald's piano more than on Patrick Simmons' or Jeff Baxter's guitars…

As one of the most popular California pop/rock bands of the '70s, the Doobie Brothers evolved from a mellow, post-hippie boogie band to a slick, soul-inflected pop band by the end of the decade. Along the way, the group racked up a string of gold and platinum albums in the U.S., along with a number of radio hits like "Listen to the Music," "Black Water," and "China Grove." The roots of the Doobie Brothers lie in Pud, a short-lived California country-rock band in the vein of Moby Grape featuring guitarist/vocalist Tom Johnston and drummer John Hartman.

Recorded Live at Wolf Trap National Park For The Performing Arts, July 25, 2004. The Doobie Brothers Live at Wolf Trap may not be the entire Doobie Brothers story, but it's a really fun and musically brilliant tour through some of the band's best material. One of the great ironies of The Doobie Brothers' history is how the early days were kind of shunted off to the sidelines once Michael McDonald came on board, and so it's nice to revisit some of those storied early hits, especially since there's such camaraderie between Johnston and Simmons especially. This live concert is further aided by some great supporting musicians, and a superior video and audio presentation.

Five vintage albums from '70s hitmakers the Doobie Brothers are included in this special box set. Released in 1971, The Doobie Brothers was the group's first album, and finds the Doobies beginning to work out the sound that would make them famous. Livin' on the Fault Line from 1977 would prove to be their last album with guitarist and founder Tom Johnston, and found them expanding their jazz influences. Issued in 1978, Minute by Minute featured two major hits, the title cut and "What a Fool Believes," and with Michael McDonald handling all the lead vocals, the group refined its R&B sound and came up with a commercial blockbuster.
