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

The last of the Tom Johnston era albums before Michael McDonald stepped in finds an upbeat Doobies delivering one of their best albums. There's a real celebratory feel running through this rootsy, soulful album. Patrick Simmons haunting 'I cheat the hangman' is also a standout cut and arguably one of his best compostions. Sound and packaging are exceptional and a massive improvement on the original CD release. An essential Doobie album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a great album 17 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Doobie Brothers fan for more years than I care to remember and I just keep coming back to this as one of their best, possibly even the best. Evokes some really strong memories as all great music should do. it hangs together really well and I urge anuobe without a Doobies album to start with this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy or spectacularly bland? 18 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Good golly! Thirty years, this month, since i bought my LP copy of this album. I can even remember "Stampede" being given a bit of a panning in the GB musical press, at the time of its release. I've never forgotten a reviewer referring to the group's "spectacularly bland harmonies". I always thought that a little unfair, as this is a Doobie Brothers album which compares very favourably with their best work. Patrick Simmons and Tom Johnston are both in great form on this one. (This is the latter's final flowering on the early era Doobies releases, prior to having some serious personal problems.)

There are some interesting guest appearances on the album, and Curtis Mayfield does a great string and horn arrangement on "Music Man". Looking at the track listing, i'm moved to say that there isn't a really duff track in sight. "Sweet Maxine" is a super opener, which features some blistering dual guitar work. That's followed by another up-tempo rocker, "Neal's Fandango", prior to things being slowed down on the soothing "Texas Lullaby". "Music Man" gets things going again, with that classy Mayfield arrangement, before the short "Slat Key Soquel Rag" instrumental.

"Take Me In Your Arms" was the main single release from "Stampede", and it's a pretty decent cover of the Motown song. "I Cheat The Hangman" is very Patrick Simmonsy in style. It's a good track, but is a bit overcooked in comparison with the rest. "Precis" is a brief showcase for Baxter, before another couple of Tom Johnston songs. "Rainy Day Crossroads Blues" and "I Been Workin' On You" are both okay, although not his best compositions on the album. Better is Simmons' "Double Dealin' Four Flusher", which brings things to a close. I can't, off the top of my head, think of a rockier Simmons track.
