The Doobie Brothers: what were once vices are now habits
April 4, 2014
Absolute killer of an album and playing this MOFI release reminded me why I loved the Doobie Brothers back in the 70's. What a rare combination of power and vocals - - especially the fabulous harmonies. The Memphis Horns really added some weight to this classic album. Unfortunately, and as a ...

August 6, 2013
