The Doobie Brothers started life as Pud in 1969 in Chateau Liberte, a club in the mountains of California. The group took on the slang name for marijuana cigarettes one year later. The Captain And Me is considered to be the group's most concentrated and versatile production since it contrasts aggressive, hard numbers with gentle ones full of melody. The very first number, "Natural Thing," shows how winsome vocal folk music and electric guitar riffs can be amalgamated into rock music.

I have the original pressing, this pressing from Speakers Corner steps up several notches. It is a quieter pressing, separation between instruments is greater, more details come through, and the album cover is gorgeous. Dont wait, get this. One of my better purchases, because not all new vinyl lives up to what we expect, but this one does.

Great music and a great sounding pressing from Speaker's Corner. I think it is better than my MOFI SACD. I have had great experience with SC remasters. Highly recommend!

Pure Analogue pays off!

I have compared this Speakers Corner Records version to the Friday Music LP and the Mobile Fidelity SACD. The winner is Speakers Corner Records (SCR)by a mile! SCR version is big, full and open, a pure delight compared to the FM version. The FM version is restricted and flat when compared to the SPR version. In fact I feel robbed by the FM version. For example the bass and drums on the intro to “Long Train Running” are full of life and depth on the SCR version, were as on the FM version they sound limited and compressed back. After hearing the difference between SCR and FM I have stopped buying FM records. Without being able to do an A/B comparison you would not know what you are missing with the FM version. I even think the Mobile Fidelity SACD is nicer than the FM version. This has proven to me that without a doubt PURE ANALOGUE production by SCR is best and the digital fiddling done by FM takes away and does not make any improvement at all.

I was on the fence with this one having a choice between this label (Which I had no personal experience with) and the new label (Friday Music). I can only hope Fridays sounds this good, or, if possible better. This release sounds really good! NO CLICKS OR POPS!!! Very lively full sound. I want to see Friday succeed too.. after years of being F'd with bad cds, theres a lot more music out there that needs TLC!!! 1st rate job with the record jacket and the vinyl came in a quality sleeve as well.

Drop the needle and forget the years, this album will put you into genuflect mode for the smoky years of the 70's. From the sonic purity of the vinyl to Tom Johnston's timeless riff's and melodies, you will revisit why you started to love music.
