The 1st song the Doobie's sang on What's Happening! Poor Re-Run, Raj, and Dwayne played themselves with the bootleg tape. Re-Run dropped the recorder out of trench coat!

I love everything from the Michael McDonald era when the doobies took a jazzier more cerebral approach to music. Love the crazy time signatures and jazzy key changes.

Music from a time when instruments were actually played by musicians!

Love the sax, MM, and LOVE the bass guitar on Takin it to the Streets. One of the best with MM in the group. Still, the earlier tunes with TJ are even more memorable and enduring and Doobie.

I grew up in the 70's. Grad in 75', this was the best years for me!! When music had a meaning.

Artists just don't write music like this anymore, or am I just being nostalgic? It seems to me that the melodies and lyrics from the '70s are still by far and away the best.

This and "Minute by Minute" probably the best merger of Michael McDonald and the original Doobies. Most of the rest is fluff without Tom Johnston.

this is one of my favorite songs from the doobie bros
