“Black Water” was the first of two #1’s in the career of The Doobie Brothers. It was originally released as the b-side with “Another Park, Another Sunday” was the a-side- the group just never looked at it as being a single. It would later be re-released as an A-side after it began getting airplay on a Roanoke, Virginia radio station- and then it broke out all over the country- hitting #1 in March 1975.
