Great to finally have it on CD...but where's the bonus track

"Coming from a band like the Doobie Brothers, Patrick Simmons was really jumping head first into the 80s by releasing an album with the synth and drum machine drenched "So Wrong" on it. It may have not been a huge Hot 100 chart hit, but it was a number 8 Billboard dance hit, and as such, the 12" version of this song has become much sought after by dance collectors. Therefore, this would have been the ultimate opportunity to put that 5:22 extended remix on here as a B-side.
Meanwhile, although none of the other songs on this CD have that dance sound, a couple of track move away from the Doobie sound and delve into total indulgent eighties rhythms and sounds."
Re-discovered lost gem

"Pat Simmons released this album back in the early 80's and was pretty much forgotten about..until now. Amazingly, this music sounds refreshing nowadays. It has many different flavors of music on it, from the hard rocking "Out on the Streets" and "Knocking at Your Door" to the easy rock of "Dream About Me" "Don't Make Me Do It" and "Why You Givin' Up" to the jazzy "Sue Sad". The radio hit was the song "So Wrong". Pick this one up and enjoy."
Finally - I've been waiting for decades!!!

"I bought this album back when it was released and loved it. After it either wore out or got lost, and we moved into the CD age, I couldn't find it again. I'm very glad that this is out on CD. I totally disagree with the negative reviews. It's just good music from a great Doobie. Get over yourself and enjoy. :)"
