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 fifth and sixth Warner Brothers albums is the third of the Edsel series of reissue packages presented with a selection of rare additional tracks. Jeff Baxter joined the band from Steely Dan for “Stampede” (1975), which includes the epic “I Cheat The Hangman” and the band’s hit version of Gladys Knight’s “Take Me In You Arms” along with five bonus tracks including two songs that were never re-recorded.

Michael McDonald joined the band for “Takin’ It To The Streets” (1976), his title song providing another massive hit. The demo version is one of the two bonus tracks.

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

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Oct. 2011
UK released Monday 26 September 2011 as a 2CD set - Edsel EDSD 2106 breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (57:48 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 11 are their 5th studio album "Stampede" - released May 1975 on Warner Brothers K 56094 in the UK - Warner Brothers BS 2835 in the USA
Tracks 12 to 16 are bonus tracks - all are taken from the 4CD Box Set "Long Train Runnin': 1970-2000" released on Rhino in September 1999 in the USA. All were new to CD at the time with 12 being the 'Single Remix' of "Sweet Maxine" and 13 to 16 being Previously Unreleased album 'Outtakes'

Disc 2 (45:40 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are their 6th studio album "Takin' It To The Streets" - released March 1976 on Warner Brothers K 56196 in the UK - Warner Brothers BS 2899 in the USA
Tracks 10 and 11 are bonus tracks - both as per 12 to 16 on Disc 1

The 24-page booklet is far more substantial than I had expected - original album artwork including inner gatefolds is shown for both LPs, the lyrics, musician credits, UK LP labels pictured and an informative history on each album by ALAN ROBINSON. The booklet is superbly done. But the big news is the fabulous new SOUND...

I've had all 10 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 by Ted Templeman was so razor sharp (he's long been associated with the band and more famously with Van Halen).

Some tracks are shockingly better - that great guitar solo in "Neal's Fandango" rocks as does the cover of the Holland-Dozier-Holland Motown classic "Take Me In Your Arms...

This twofer released in 2011 captures The Doobie Brothers at their most creative.
Stampede was their fifth album and was released in April 1975. It reached number 4 on the Billboard top albums chart. It has a western theme which is why the members of the band have decided to climb onto horseback to be photographed, apart from Skunk Baxter who wisely stayed on the ground. They even namecheck the horses used for the photo shoot !
There were three singles issued from the album. The first is a cover of Take Me In Your Arms which was originally sung by Kim Weston. Tom Johnston sings the vocal and the song reached number 11 on the singles chart.
The second single Sweet Maxine again with a lead vocal by Johntson is a more typical guitar driven shuffle by the band and reached number 40 in July 1975.
The third single was I Cheat The Hangman with the lead vocal by Pat Simmons. This is a weird choice for a single as it sounds like a prog rock album track and only reached number 60.
Ry Cooder adds slide guitar on Rainy Day Crossroad Blues which is very atmospheric.
Takin' It To The Streets was their sixth album and was released in March 1976. It reached number 8 on the album chart and introduced the new guy Michael McDonald on vocals and keyboards.
The first single from the album was the storming Takin' It To The Streets which reached number 8 on the singles chart.
The second single was the more reflective Wheels Of Fortune which reached a lowly number 87.
The third and final single was It Keeps You Runnin' which reached number 37 on the chart. This song was also covered by Carly Simon on her Another Passenger album which was also produced by Ted Templeman and had The Doobie Brothers playing on it.

Superb! I have a number of CD issues of Stampede and own an original vinyl mint copy but the remastering on these cd's is quite astounding! Want two drum kits blasting out from each speaker, you get it. Want glorious harmonies, same again. Acoustic guitars that sound as though someone is actually playing live in your lounge, its there! Another reviewer here, Mark Gerard Barry, has detailed the significance of this release perfectly (you are obviously a fan!).

If you are a Doobie's fan and an audiophile look no further, this is the real deal! 'Stampede' is one of the greatest albums to come out of the USA and this release captures the music perfectly. It is not 'digitised' and clinical like some remastered material from the 70's. It has depth warmth and realism. Sweet music!
