The Doobie Brothers What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits on 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster
Known for their ability of churning out hit songs, top charting albums and sell-out shows across the globe, The Doobie Brothers continue to be a force in the music business enjoying success now for over four decades. They were also in the forefront of making excellent sounding recordings, utilizing their masterful skills in the studio, and their amazing catalog of albums have all stood the test of time.
1974 was a banner year for the band as they took their Bay Area soul and rock driven sound to a further dimension thanks to the hits on their fourth smash LP What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits. Produced by Ted Templeman, this multi-platinum event would go on to become one of the most successful albums by The Doobie Brothers, spurned on by the huge Patrick Simmons’ #1 single "Black Water." Plus the hard rockin’ session yielded more hits like the Memphis R&B sounds of "Eyes Of Silver" and Tom Johnston’s classic summertime ballad "Another Park, Another Sunday."
Fronted by dual lead vocalists and guitar mavens Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons, Tiran Porter on bass, and the dual drummers John Hartman and the late great Michael Hossack, The Doobie Brothers continued their trek to the top of the music charts as the LP went even deeper on album radio with more amazing hits like the hard rocker "Pursuit on 53rd Street," the funk/acoustic vibe of "Daughters Of The Sea," and the tour de force masterpiece "Road Angel."
Even superstar friends like future Doobie Brothers Jeff “Skunk Baxter” and the late Keith Knudsen, Billy Payne from Little Feat, the legendary Arlo Guthrie and The Memphis Horns are all featured on this once in a lifetime classic rocker. Friday Music is proud once again to offer another installment in their ever popular Doobie Brothers 180 Gram Vinyl Series with their masterpiece What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits.
