Power 96 Cool Recap: Doobie Brothers
Yesterday's Power 96 Cool One was the Doobie Brothers' "Dangerous" from 1991's 11th studio album release, Brotherhood. The single made it to No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The other single from the album, "Rollin' On," made it to No. 12 on the same chart. The album peaked at No. 82 on the U.S. Billboard 200.
According to Wikipedia, "Dangerous" is "Patrick Simmons' anthem to his passion for Harley-Davidson motorcycles." The album was also the last one that bassist Tiran Porter and original drummer John Hartman appeared on. Because of the poor showing on the charts, the album ended being the second and final album for the Doobie Brothers on Capitol Records, as they were dropped shortly thereafter.
Join me this afternoon at 4:35 for today's installment of the Power 96 Cool One, brought to you by Kelly's Auto Parts on Seventh Street in Faribault. I stumbled upon today's Cool One while perusing old K-Tel Presents compilation albums, specifically the collection called Dynamite. Hidden among the disco tracks and pop songs was a rocking little gem that I haven't heard in a while. Make sure you're listening to find out who and what it is.
