The Captain And Me

One of the great albums of the 70’s, the Doobie Brothers’ 1973 classic: The Captain & Me. Best known for the iconic Long Train Runnin’ and China Grove, this album is solid from top to bottom. But my favorites (predictably) were the less known songs, Dark Eyed Cajun Woman, Ukiah, and Clear As the Driven Snow.... The Doobies were probably my favorite band in the early part of the mid-70’s, and I still love all of the pre-Michael MacDonald stuff. I saw them at Pittsburgh's Civic Arena back in the fall of '76... The critics, predictably, were never very impressed with them.
