“I’d like to hear some funky Dixieland pretty mama come and take me by the hand”…

Those words were first heard on Feb. 1, 1974 when The Doobie Brothers released their 4th LP “What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits”.

Tom Johnston’s “Another Park, Another Sunday” was chosen to be the album’s first single. The song did moderately well on the charts, peaking at #32. The second single released was “Eyes of Silver”, another Johnston penned tune and that song didn’t have much success on the charts either. Grasping for chart action, Warner Brothers re-released the band’s first single, “Nobody”. This release was soon overshadowed when radio stations discovered “Black Water”. Other stations joined in and the song was officially released as a single that went on to sell over a million copies and became the Doobie Brothers’ first #1 hit.

Happy 44th Birthday to “What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits”!!! Have you enjoyed a Doobie (Brothers song) lately?
