Simmons, Patrick - Arcade (CD)
Regular price $14.00 (Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.)
Arcade contains 10 songs on which six Simmons wrote or co-wrote. He has incorporated both the Tom Johnston-era as well as the Michael McDonald-era Doobie Brothers style-sound nicely throughout with guests on various tracks that include his 'Brothers', Tom Johnston, John McFee, Willie Weeks, Bobby LaKind, Jeff Skunk Baxter, Cornelius Bumpus and Michael McDonald. Even co-producer of the album, Ted Templeton, plays clavinet on If You Want A Little Love. The Tower Of Power Horns are included on the Huey Lewis & The News penned Don't Make Me Do It as well as If You Want A Little Love, Sue Sad and the wonderful rendition of the Chi-Lites hit, Have You Seen Her. Singer Chris Thompson is also outstanding throughout with his lead and backing vocals.
Arcade was never a huge commercial success but to Doobie fans who love Patrick Simmons style and energy, it is a must have.
