19 Songs, 1 Hour 16 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the great outdoor venues, UC Berkeley's Greek Theater has hosted hundreds of concerts over the years, as well as commencement ceremonies and speeches by everyone from William Hearst to the Dalai Lama. The Doobies were at the height of their powers in 1982, and this 19-track collection finds them pulling out all the stops for a very appreciative audience. Live recordings (especially in the pre-digital age) are notoriously hit-or-miss, but the sound quality here is pristine, with a crystal-clear mix on the horn-infused instrumentation and Michael McDonald's extra-smooth vocals in full effect. All of their classic hits are included, such as "Listen to the Music," "Takin’ It to the Streets," "Long Train Runnin’," "What a Fool Believes," and "Minute by Minute." Whether you're an old-school fan from back in the day or are just now getting hip to their relentlessly funky boogie-rock stylings, do yourself a favor and check this out.
