McDONALD introduced the next song, "On My Own" by saying it was the duet he recorded with PATTI LaBELLE but that he had not performed it in a while because he didn’t have a singer in the band who could handle LaBELLE’s part.
Eventually he made the necessary adjustment and she was back in the key with the rest of the band but, by then, damage to the song – and the moment - had already been done.

 Michael McDonald, 03 March 2004, Paramount Theatre, Denver, CO
Paramount Theatre, Denver, CO The earliest recollection I have of Michael McDonald was when he and the rest of the Doobie Brothers appeared on an episode of the SitCom "What's Happening!!" in the 1970s.
Michael's triple encore included "Takin It To The Streets", and three songs with guest singer/guitarist Keb Mo (who just happened to be in town), including a cover of Booker T. Jones' "Ole Man Trouble".
Michael is definitely in a groove bigger and better than anything we've seen from him in over 15 years.

 Michael McDonald : Motown - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Michael McDonald never disguises what his seventh solo album is: the title Motown makes it clear that this 2003 effort is a tribute to the glory days of Berry Gordy's Detroit empire.
Since this is McDonald, not a neo-soul neophyte, this is cleanly and sharply produced, relying heavily on synthesizers, drum machines, and professional vocalists, but anybody who has spent any time with his solo records will find this not to be objectionable, but par for the course.
If McDonald doesn't reinvent these songs -- hell, he uses the original arrangements as a blueprint, then cleans them up -- he does display a love and reverence for the work, and his singing is passionate throughout.

   McDonald also continued to do solo tours during the '90s, as well as a much-touted reunion tour with the Doobie Brothers in 1996.

 Blue Obsession, Ramp Records, Michael Mcdonald
McDonald has hardly shifted his allegiances; the studio-crafted grooves and plummy vocals here could have come from any of his post-Doobies records.
The music rarely surprises--though the opening cut, "All I Need," does indicate that McDonald may be at least sympathetic to hip-hop--but he does throw a curve with a cover of Neil Young's "Down by the River" that probably won't capture a lot of airplay on smooth-jazz stations.
I know he never really went away, but I consider this album the beginning of Michael's "comeback." True, it wasn't a big commercial success, but I think this was his most solid album since No Looking Back (his second solo album.) There's quite a few VERY good songs on here.

 Blogcritics.org: CD Review: Michael McDonald — The Ultimate Collection
It’s important to note that Michael McDonald produced the album himself, so it’s probably safe to say that it represents the artist’s view of what an ultimate collection of his music entails.
Speaking of music of the 80’s, McDonald’s non-Doobies contributions to this album from that decade are by far the weakest on this collection.
If you are looking to purchase one Michael McDonald “best of” album, I recommend you get this one for the fact that this is the only one with McDonald’s Doobie Brothers hits.
