This double-platinum 1973 album features many hits including 'China Grove' and 'Long Train Runnin'.

Taking off on the commercial success of Toulouse Street, the Doobie Brothers’ The Captain and Me propelled the group to superstar status. Having spent an entire year on the charts after its March 1973 release, the band’s third record features one classic tune after another, including the mega-hits "China Grove" and "Long Train Runnin’."

To many, The Captain and Me remains the feel-good California quintet’s best work. Balanced between Tom Johnston’s harder-rocking contributions and Patrick Simmons’ mellow country-laced ballads, the album satisfies all tastes and displays a stunning array of high harmonies and interlocking rhythms. Laidback yet engaged, the stylistic combination belies the Doobies’ roots as a Northern California bar band that played at afternoon jam sessions for members of the Hell’s Angels and its evolution into a more polished, confident mainstream band on par with fellow peers the Eagles and the Allman Brothers Band.

Such biker-meets-beach mentality can be heard on the lead-off "Natural Thing," a midtempo tune that feeds of the tension between the acoustic and electric guitars, and on the skyward title track, which builds in energy as it moves towards a climax. And of course, there’s "China Grove" and "Long Train Runnin'," each a '70s pop-rock hallmark that conjures the liberating feelings of wind blowing through your hair and three-day weekends. Deceptively simple and thoroughly enjoyable, the Doobies understand that music is supposed to be fun—and that it needs to groove.

Mobile Fidelity realizes that, too. Mastered from the original master tapes and loaded with detail, MoFi’s Hybrid stereo SACD of The Captain and Me glows with radiant warmth, organic tones, and acoustic presence. You have never heard the familiar chorus of "China Grove" or romance of "South City Midnight Lady" with such clarity, soul, or immediacy. This is '70s rock at its best!

Other Doobie Brothers titles on Limited Edition Mobile Fidelity SACD are Takin' It To the Streets (MOBSA2043) and Toulouse Street (MOBSA2041)
