The Doobie Brothers

The Doobie Brothers' Soul-infused Boogie Rock dominated the airwaves throughout the 1970s, and even today such songs as "China Grove" and "Black Water" enjoy round-the-clock rotation on both Oldies and Classic Rock stations. To some, their patented, fake-funk formula sapped rock 'n' roll music of all its vitality, and their music personifies the bland AOR stylings of the '70s. Nevertheless, the Doobie Brothers were able musicians and showed remarkable talent with group harmonies. Most notable were the vocals of keyboardist Michael MacDonald, who went on to experience fame as a solo artist in the '80s.

  • Let The Music Play

    The Doobie Brothers

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 40 min

    "Let The Music Play" is the authorized story of The Doobie Brothers from their beginnings as a biker band in California in 1970, through their breakthrough with "Listen To The Music" in 1972, sustained success and line-up changes in the mid-seventies and their change of musical direction and further success following the arrival of Michael McDonald in 1976. Worn out by non-stop touring and internal disagreements the band broke up after a "farewell" concert in 1982. There were sporadic reunions in the eighties before the band reformed permanently in the early nineties and have continued touring and recording ever since. This new film features contributions from all the surviving key band members, their manager Bruce Cohn and long term producer Ted Templeman to tell the full story of the band's highs and lows through four decades of musical evolution.
     
     
  • Live at the Greek Theater

    The Doobie Brothers

    Year: 1981

    Runtime: 1 hr 15 min

    Recorded at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California in 1982, this concert was the last date on the Doobie Brothers' "Farewell Tour". It was an emotional night and would be their last gig for 5 years. The band played a set containing all their best loved hits from across their career and were joined by founding member Tom Johnston for the last two tracks, with former members John Hartman (also from the original line-up), Tiran Porter and Michael Hossack coming on stage for the celebratory finale of "Listen To The Music". The band are in fantastic form and rise to the occasion magnificently, they can rarely have delivered a better performance throughout their distinguished career.
