1975 was truly a successful and transitional year for the classic rock legends The Doobie Brothers. After recording a handful of high chart rock masterpieces, they returned to the studio for the very first time with a new band line-up consisting of Steely Dan alumni Michael McDonald and Jeff Skunk Baxter and recorded the classic rock champion Takin It to the Streets.
Along with originals Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, Tiran Porter, Keith Knudsen and John Hartmann, this revitalized chapter of the Doobie franchise became a sensation, as the albums nine historic tracks prove 40 years after its release.
Friday Music is very proud to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Takin It to the Streets. This platinum plus rock classic comes with all of the great tunes you remember like the rockin LP opener Wheels of Fortune, Tiran Porters For Someone Special, a trifecta of Michael McDonald homeruns like It Keeps You Runnin, the souful Losin End, and their smash hit single Takin It to the Streets.
Like other classic Doobie Brothers releases from Friday Music, this masterwork has been mastered by Joe Reagoso (Deep Purple/Yes/Alice Cooper) from the original Warner Bros. tapes. As another fine feature also included for this limited edition release for the first time in decades is the original gatefold LP cover art.
