Apart from the four-disc Rhino box and an import collection, there was no comprehensive Doobie Brothers
collection spanning the Tom Johnston
and Michael McDonald
eras alike until Rhino's 2001 collection, Greatest Hits
. This, needless to say, is a welcome development, since it does have all the big songs, from "Listen to the Music" and "China Grove" through "Takin' It to the Streets" and "What a Fool Believes" to their reunion single, "The Doctor," providing an excellent introduction-cum-summary of one of the most popular singles-oriented pop/rock bands of the '70s.
