Biography

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

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best 30 Jan 2004
Format:DVD Audio
If you are considering buying a Doobies album for the first time, this is undoubtedly THE ONE. Don't mess around with those ubiquitous 'Best of' collections that are out there. Go for the continuity of this marvellous studio album.
Probably the single biggest testament to this recording is that so many of the songs thereon remain in the Doobies live set to this day. Natural Thing, Long Train Runnin, China Grove, Dark Eyed Cajun Woman, Clear as the Driven Snow, Without You and South City Midnight Lady are all regulars in their shows. When you consider how many studio albums the Doobs have made, this is an amazing statistic.
It would be easy to write about the virtues of Long Train Runnin and China Grove as they are great (and very well know songs) and you have probably heard them many times.
No, the real reason for buying this album are other gems such as the absolutely amazing 'Clear as the Driven Snow' and the wonderful 'Natural Thing'. The mix of country and rock is irresistable. Then you have a pair of lovely ballads (South City Midnight Lady and Dark Eyed Cajum Woman) which are beautiful in their own right. Then there's a pair of rockers (Without You and Evil Woman) which rock as hard as any songs you can think of.
The only other Doobies album which comes close to this one in my opinion is the wonderful 'Stampede' (with the amazing Neal's Fandango and 'Sweet Maxine') although the live set 'Rocking Down the Highway" (The Wildlife Concert) is well worth having too (on video or CD).
One last thing, if ever the Doobie Brothers are playing live close to you....GO. Don' make excuse, just GO. They are probably one of the best live acts out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Doobies 25 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled accross the Doobie Brothers almost accidentally, but by buying this album made one of my shrewdest ever purchases. Essentially the Doobie Brothers are what would seem to be an obscure mix of rock, blues, country and gospel, yet although this album showcases all of those influences, it presents a more rock orientated Doobies. Every song is simply a classic, lingering long in the memory. The opener "Natural Thing" has a definite soul tinge, but is a fantastic song. "Long Train Runnin'" and "China Grove" are both classic songs and both perenial favourites with bar bands everywhere. However my personal favourite tracks are the ballad "Dark Eyed Cajun Woman," the awesome rocker "Without You" and the gospel/country/rock track "Ukiah."
Overall "The Captain and Me" is one album which should feature in every true music fan's collection. No matter what genere of music you believe you like, buy this album, you will not regret it. This is simply classic rock and in my opinion one of the greatest albums in rock history. Ignore the compilations available, this album has all the Doobie Brothers material you would ever want.

5.0 out of 5 stars suprisingly good 28 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after hearing long train running and I have been playing it constantly since. Initially, I was more than a little unsure about purchasing it has I had only heard, aside fron long train running the later/blander stuff with M.MacDonald and had always associated them with soft rock. Thus when I bought it I was very plesantly supprised to find a rock band playing great rock music. As well as long train running you also get China Grove another great rock song. the band aslo show their versitality by playing country flavored material like Dark eyed cajun woman9 nff title I know). All in all an excelent album

Generally regarded as the best of the Tom Johnston era albums (or the best, period, depending how you feel about Mr McDonald). 'The Captain & Me' shows the Doobies at their most versatile. The original CD issues of all the Doobie Brothers albums were notorious for their flat, lifeless sound. Not any more: These meticulously prepared Japanese editions are a feast for the eyes and ears - the attention to detail is astounding. It's been long overdue but well worth the wait. Doobie fans should aquire without delay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the original and best 2 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Frankly, it has never been exactly cool to be a Doobies fan in the UK. Their music has always veered towards "America on the road" - something that has never really translated well to the UK.

But I don't care about fads and fashion (you should see the shirt I'm wearing for proof) - this album is still in my top 10 of all time. It was probably the third or fourth vinyl lp I bought as a spotty fourteen year old. That vinyl copy is still in my collection - although has been surpassed by this brilliant Japanese CD remaster with such an accurate and musical sound. But this album is not about my personal nostalgia of my teenage years - it stands up as the Doobies best, but also an early insight into Americana. Some of the acoustic songs are superb, and actually way ahead of their time as this was recorded in 1973. To say this sits alongside something like "The Band's" second album is not an inaccurate comparison - its that good.

Of course, when someone mentions TCAM we all think of the hit singles - Long Train Runnin', China Grove etc, and fantastic as those songs are - I have always felt the heart of this album are the acoustic numbers. That was the Pat Simmons influence from his folk finger picking days before he met Tommy Johnstone. South City Midnight Lady, Natural Thing and Clear As the Driven Snow are all beautifully picked songs that would grace any modern folk album. This was way ahead of anything the Eagles did a year later (snore, snore). And of course the Doobs could rock out big time. Without You and Evil Woman and pretty heavy (man!) but still retain the melody and harmony that made the Doobs famous.

Its now over 35 years since I heard TCAM. I still play the album regularly. Its like an old friend, but it never bores. Why?
