New Numbered Edition and Mini-LP Style Packaging
Taking off on the commercial success of Toulouse Street, the Doobie Brothersâ€™ The Captain and Me propelled the group to superstar status. Having spent an entire year on the charts after its March 1973 release, the bandâ€™s third record features one classic tune after another, including the mega-hits â€œChina Groveâ€ and â€œLong Train Runninâ€™.â€
To many, The Captain and Me remains the feel-good California quintetâ€™s best work. Balanced between Tom Johnstonâ€™s harder-rocking contributions and Patrick Simmonsâ€™ mellower country-laced ballads, the album satisfies all tastes and displays a stunning array of high harmonies and interlocking rhythms.
Mastered from the original master tapes and loaded with detail, MoFiâ€™s Hybrid stereo SACD glows with radiant warmth, organic tones, and acoustic presence. You have never heard the familiar chorus of â€œChina Groveâ€ or romance of â€œSouth City Midnight Ladyâ€ with such clarity, soul, or immediacy. This is 70s rock at its best!
