A must have for west coast rockers, long live the class of the 70's
This album is clearly a tribute to the early roots, California coastal biker rock & roll that is executed with heart and soul, produced without commercial compromise and will quickly become a favorite of many Doobie enthusiast. Patrick's Cajun influence is most notable in "Black water", but it is Tommy's unbridled passion for high wattage power cords that rule the day. Sprinkled among the road rocking anthems are several lay back tributes to serve as a reminder that these rockers are masters of mellow as well. My personal favorite of my unabridged Doobie collection.

What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits
I've possessed the Doobie's 'Greatest Hits' album in various forms (vinyl, cassette and CD and now on I-Tunes as well)but until a friend played his Doobie's copy of 'The Captain And Me' in DVD audio, I'd never heard any of the bands other music. I loved the album - Purchased it on disc and I figured I'd start to purchase their other albums chronologically which led me to their first three albums and now this, their forth.
Released in 1974, a year after their breakthrough album "The Captain & Me," What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits is a very good album (especially by today's standards of music).
The big hit from this album, of course, is the classic: "Black Water." This was originally the 'B-side' to 'Another Park, Another Saturday Night' another outstanding track on this album that never recieved the "Hit" status it deserved. There are lots of nice acoustic songs here - Daughters of the Sea is blessed with great harmonys along with a very hummable melody. Tom Johnson has a couple of rockers that, by now in there career were obligitory for him to ad. They're not bad. The transfer to CD is very nice. Overall, I'd give this album a grade of B+ to A-.

Doobie Brothers CD
I have loved this album since it was first released in the '70's! E-Bay was the only place I could find it after visiting over 25 stores in 3 states.
