On Our Way Up is one of several unauthorized releases of an early Doobie Brothersdemo recorded in 1970. Other unauthorized releases of some or all of the tracks on this recording include Runaround Ways, Introducing The Doobie Brothers, Still Smokin' and Excitement, among other titles.
"Tilted Park Crud Hunchery" (Johnston, Simmons) – 7:57
A subsequent recording of "Blue Jay" appears on the 1999 box set Long Train Runnin'. The melody & chord changes for "I'll Keep On Givin'" were later reworked on "Another Park, Another Sunday" (from What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits). None of the remaining songs on this collection appear on any official Doobie Brothers release in any form. "Tilted Park Crud Hunchery" is unique in that it includes a short lead vocal by bassist Dave Shogren.
