The Doobie Brothers - One Step Closer download mp3 album
Farewell Tour is the first live album by American rock band The Doobie Brothers, released in 1983. It documents the group's 1982 Farewell Tour and is a double album set. By the early 1980s, the Doobie Brothers had evolved from the guitar-boogie sound under original band frontman Tom Johnston to a soulful keyboard-driven AOR sound under Michael McDonald. Despite the many personnel changes in the group, Patrick Simmons remained from the original incarnation of the group.
The Doobie Brothers is the debut studio album by American rock band The Doobie Brothers. The album was released on April 30, 1971, by Warner Bros. It is their only official studio album to feature original bass player Dave Shogren on all tracks, who left during the recording of their second album. The first single from the album, "Nobody," failed to chart, as did the album itself

By the end of their first run-from 1970 to 1982-the Doobie Brothers had morphed from an acoustic-based boogie band to slick, keyboard-driven hitmakers, as stunning a transformation in purpose and execution as any in rock history. 1978’s MINUTE BY MINUTE and its immortal hit What a Fool Believes -which provided the band’s Grammy moment-were the apex of the latter approach, fueled by Steely Dan alum Michael McDonald, his piano playing and his soulful, lady-wooin’ way around a lyric. ONE STEP CLOSER, released in 1980, was the final studio album with McDonald and served as a great setup for his solo career, in large part because his essence-his eau de McD, if you will-is all over the record, both on the songs he contributed, as well as, amazingly, those he did not. "Real Love"-a Top Five hit-is a great example of McDonald's basic approach.
The group's weakest album to date, One Step Closer is only a failure in relative terms. At the outset of the group's shift toward a more soulful sound, it might have gotten by in much the same way that, say, the Bee Gees' Mr. Natural failed commercially but was given a "pass" by critics, their record label, and, perhaps most importantly, the band itself. But coming off of the multi-Grammy winning Minute by Minute, One Step Closer was a serious letdown, despite the presence of a modest hit in "Real Love" and platinum record award-level sales.
One Step Closer is the ninth studio album by American rock band The Doobie Brothers, released in 1980. The album included the hit "Real Love", which reached on the Billboard Hot 100; this also marks the last studio album with Michael McDonald in the lineup. This album shows the difference between highly competent musicianship and true inspiration, and what each can deliver. The group's weakest album to date, One Step Closer is only a failure in relative terms
