A Sophomore Triumph, Toulouse Street is All About Kicking Back and Surrendering to the Grooves
A sophomore triumph, the Doobie Brothers' Toulouse Street is all about kicking back, lighting one up, and surrendering to the grooves. If you've ever flicked on an FM radio, you know the instantly gratifying harmonies of "Listen to the Music" and gospel rush of "Jesus Is Just Alright." Each Top 40 single has proved timeless by way of remaining radio staples that still receive regular airplay. The 1972 album's other eight songs are equally great. This is the musical junction at which Southern, Appalachian, and Northern crossroads intersect.
Now, thanks to pristine remastering from the original analog master tapes, the Doobie Brothers' defining moment sounds better than ever. Staggering clarity and revealing transparency allows you to hear into the band's dual lead guitar, binary vocalist, and twin drummer setup. That's right – two guitarists, two vocalists, and two drummers, all presented in full-range glory. Talk about rockin' down the highway!
