The father of perennial A-Lister Chevy Chase remarried into the Folgers coffee family. Chevy Chase played drums with the college band The Leather Canary, headed by school friends Walter Becker and Donald Fagen. Chase has called the group "a bad jazz band"; Becker and Fagen later founded the successful group Steely Dan. Chase is gifted with absolute pitch. He played drums and keyboards for a rock band called Chamaeleon Church, which recorded one album for MGM Records before disbanding in 1969. To give the album a more soft-rock sound, producer Alan Lorber made several alterations in the mixing, including the muting of Chase's bass drum, and Chase was reportedly incensed when he heard the final mix.

The original version of "Do It Again" is in the key of G minor.

The instrument used on the first instrumental break is an electric sitar. This is followed by an organ solo.

Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, guitarist on the Dan's first album, joined the Doobie Brothers in 1975. Denny Dias, who played lead guitar on this album, is now a computer programmer. Baxter continues to be active as a musician and has for many years been a consultant in the audio industry. He has also leant his technical expertise to the defence industry.

This song is credited as "Trad." (meaning "traditional") in the album credits. This is a fairly typical Donald Fagen/Walter Becker lol-prank.

Cover versions
-The Brazilian funk jazz instrumentalist Eumir Deodato recorded an extensive funk jazz orchestration on the 1973 concert recording Live at Felt Forum: The 2001 Concert. He has covered the song on numerous occasions in the studio and live. A Deodato hit collection released in 2007 bears the title Do it Again.
-Waylon Jennings recorded a cover of this song in 1980 on his album Music Man. Played at a faster pace, Waylon's version of the song is shorter than the original. This version also features his distinctive guitar solo in the middle of the song.
-In 1983, Italian dance music act Clubhouse released "Do It Again / Billie Jean", a mashup/medley of the track with Michael Jackson's (then recent) hit. This charted well across Europe. In the United States, while the Clubhouse version performed best in pop markets, a cover version by Slingshot performed better in R&B and dance markets. Another version of the same medley was made in that year by Brooklyn Express, a disco group from New York.
-Austrian pop star Falco covered the song on his 1988 album Wiener Blut.
-Art of Noise sampled the song for their version of Prince's "Kiss" with Tom Jones in 1988.
-The disco-funk orchestra Rhythm Heritage covered the song, coupling it with War's "Cisco Kid".
-A short lived funk/alternative band, The Organization, composed of all former Death Angel members, less Mark Osegueda, covered this song on their 1995 album Savor The Flavor.
-In 1997, Paul Hardcastle offered his version from the album Cover to Cover.
-Latin urban group Kumbia Kings released a Spanish-language rendition of the song, entitled "Ella Sabe" ("She Knows") on their 2004 album, Fuego.
-The electroLatin 2007 release Bossa Nova Is Not A Crime by The Juju Orchestra features a cover with Carolyn Leonhart and Robert Smith[disambiguation needed] on vocals.
-Alternative rock band The Smash Mouth covered the song in 2000 for the Jim Carrey film Me, Myself & Irene. The song is played during the end credits of the film.
-Italo disco act Asso covered the track during the 1980s.
-Soul singer Ronnie Jones included the song on his album Again (2006).
-American musician Tori Amos covered the song in 1998 during the recording sessions for her fourth album, From the Choirgirl Hotel. The song can be found on the UK edition of the single "Spark".
-The Jamaican band The Jolly Boys recorded a mento style cover of "Do It Again" on their 2010 album Great Expectations.
-Swedish singer/songwriters Sara Isaksson & Rebecka Törnqvist from their album "Fire in the hole - Sara Isaksson & Rebecka Törnqvist sing Steely Dan" (2006) Moule Records.
-1970s funk group Deep Heat released a cover of the song backed with the track "She's A Junkie (Who's The Blame)" on the Cu Wu record label.
