Product Description

The Doobie Brothers were one of the most commercially-successful bands of the 1970s, charting albums and singles around the world, with songs that are radio staples to this day. With principal songwriters Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons, and later Michael McDonald, the band incorporated an amazing array of musical styles, from rock to R&B, via country and folk.

This coupling of their seventh and eighth Warner Brothers albums is the fourth in the Edsel series of reissue packages. On “Living On The Fault Line” (1977), Michael McDonald moved to centre stage, providing most of the lead vocals, although Patrick Simmons sang the hit “Echoes Of Love”, co-written with Hi Records’ Willie Mitchell.

“Minute By Minute” (1978) delivered the band’s biggest hit in the worldwide smash “What A Fool Believes”, written by McDonald and Kenny Loggins, along with the title track and “Dependin’ On You”. The bonus tracks include the five minute 12” remix of “What A Fool Believes”.

The 24 page booklet features all the lyrics and musician credits, photos and annotation by Alan Robinson.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 Oct. 2011
UK released Monday 26 September 2011 as a 2CD set (4 Oct 2011 in the USA) - Edsel EDSD 2107 breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (35:12 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 10 are their 7th studio album "Livin' On The Fault Line" (and 2nd with Michael McDonald in the line-up). It was released September 1977 on Warner Brothers K 56383 in the UK - Warner Brothers BS 3045 in the USA

Disc 2 (45:52 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 10 are their 8th studio album "Minute By Minute" - a Number 1 record in the USA and a Grammy Winner in several categories. It was released December 1978 on Warner Brothers K 56486 in the UK - Warner Brothers BS 3193 in the USA
Tracks 11 and 12 are bonus tracks - "Here To Love You" (Single Remix) and "What A Fool Believes" (12" Remix)

The booklet is a great deal more substantial than what's gone before - 24-pages of original album artwork (including inner sleeves), UK and European labels pictured, the lyrics, musician credits and an informative 6-page history by ALAN ROBINSON on both albums and their impact. It's superbly done. But the really big news is the fabulous new SOUND...

I've had all of the 2006 Japanese Remasters (in 5" card repro sleeves) to have the music - but here the remaster by PHIL KINRADE at ALCHEMY in London is stunning and far better. The clarity is amazing. It helps of course that the original production on each album by Ted Templeman was so razor sharp in the first place (he's long been associated with the band and more famously with Van Halen).

Music - when the Doobies made their tentative steps into change with "Takin' It To The Streets" in 1976 - the old Tom Johnston riffage-crowd were appalled (some even riled against the new hybrid Soul/Rock sound with derogatory tee-shirts telling the band where to get off).

I'm listening to the "Fault Line " as i'm writing this and it's a very under rated album which hasn't been available in the UK for the last 20 years or so. Mike McDonald really comes to the forefront and has transformed the style of the band. Listen to the track "Nothing but a heartache" and like me you wonder why this wasn't a hit almost 40 years ago, Minute by Minute was a highly acclaimed album and rightly so. There are some gems on there as well which never made it to a single, pity. A fantastic addition to my collection.

It was a real blast from the past. I had it on vinyl, it was bought for me by a friend.
I loved it from the first time I played it and I still listen to it now.
