About this release

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, the band incorporated an amazing array of musical styles, from rock to R&B, via country and folk.

This coupling of their third and fourth Warner Brothers albums is continues the Edsel series of reissue packages. “The Captain And Me” (1973) includes two huge hits in “China Grove” and “Long Train Runnin’”, and the bonus tracks are the three 90s 12” remixes of “Long Train Runnin’” that reached # 7 in the UK charts in 1993.

“What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits” includes “Another Park, Another Sunday” and the US # 1 “Black Water”.

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