The Best of the Doobie Brothers Live
distills the 1996 double-disc set Rockin' Down the Highway
into a budget-priced single disc. Rockin' Down the Highway
was culled from three 1996 concerts, all of which featured all three of the band's lead vocalists: Tom Johnston
, Patrick Simmons
, and Michael McDonald
. Where that set contained a bunch of fan favorites, this pretty much concentrates on the hits ("Jesus Is Just Alright" through "What a Fool Believes" through "The Doctor"), adding "Without You," which didn't appear on the previous set. It's a fairly entertaining nostalgia trip.
