Description

Offered for sale is Japanese second issue of the LP Livin’ on the Fault Line by the Doobie Brothers, released in 1980 or so.

About this copy: This copy of Livin’ on the Fault Line is a Japanese second issue, with the blue obi and the ¥2000 price.

The obi has an ad for the Minute by Minute LP on it, so it clearly came out after 1979.

Cover, disc, and obi are M-.  The lyric insert is included.

A nice copy of an underrated LP.

Background: Released in 1977, Livin’ on the Fault Line was the seventh album by the Doobie Brothers and the first one to have no significant involvement from founder Tom Johnston.

The album reached #10 on the U.S. charts and was certified gold.

Allmusic.com gave Livin’ on the Fault Line a 4 star review:

Livin’ on the Fault Line fell between two of the Doobie Brothers’ biggest-selling records. The album had no hit singles, and one-time leader Tom Johnston kept a markedly low profile (this would be his last record with the group, not including a later reunion). Despite this, Livin’ on the Fault Line contains some of the most challenging and well-developed music of the band’s career, with Patrick Simmons and Michael McDonald really stepping to the fore.
