It says official video and it sounded like I remember it. .
That video begins with some footage shot during the photo session of the 1975 Stampede album, so that right there tells you it wasn't a vintage promo film from a song released in '73. Seems like it was put together later by either them or a fan and branded "official" but if you compare the music to the other one posted, it's a remix.
I've never owned a Doobie Brothers record, but I remember when those first ones came out on the radio. They sounded good, and like the man said, they got played to death.
But I thought I was too cool to be into them. They were like the MoR version of AOR.
One starting WTF moment for me came when reading a Trouser Press interview where John Cale
expressed admiration for "What A Fool Believes." That just didn't compute at all...
A few months ago I saw a doc that covered their entire history, and what made an impression is that they all seemed like really nice guys. Just good people.
The older I get, the more important that is to me.
Their induction on the RnR HoF show last week was the highlight. And yeah, long overdue.
Whatever stance or attitude that I had that wouldn't allow myself to like them is gone. Rock on, Doobies.
