Hit versions by The Doobie Brothers (US #8/CAN #8/NETH #10 1973 |UK #7 1993), Traks (GER #18 1982), Bananarama (UK #30 1991).

From the wiki: “Back before The Doobie Brothers signed their first recording contract, they were a biker bar band in California. On one occasion, the band went into the studio to record some demos. One would eventually become known as ‘Long Train Running’.”

“‘Long Train Runnin” was included on the band’s 1973 album The Captain and Me and released as a single, becoming a Top 10 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #8. Tom Johnston performed the lead vocal and the distinctive, rhythmic guitar strumming that propels the song. The signature harmonica solo was performed by Norton Buffalo.
