1972 was truly a banner year for classic rock legends The Doobie Brothers. After releasing their debut The Doobie Brothers LP a year earlier, Pat Simmons, Tom Johnston and John Hartman changed their direction in sound with newest members Michael Hossack on drums, and a heavy new bass presence with Tiran Porter, whereby achieving one of the biggest albums of the year with Toulouse Street.
The new stellar line-up had a whole new sound, with the dual drummer attack of Hartman and Hossack, building the Doobie franchise even further as the album's ten rockin' tracks were both rock and top 40 friendly fare for radio outlets across the nation.
Friday Music is very pleased to celebrate five decades of The Doobie Brothers' 1972 masterwork, Toulouse Street.
This multi-platinum rock classic comes with all of the great tunes you remember like the rockin' smash hit singles "Listen to the Music," the dynamic "Jesus Is Just Alright," and Doobie favorites like "Rockin' Down the Highway," the bluesy workout of "Don't Start Me to Talkin'," and the smash funk groove of "Cotton Mouth."
Like the other Friday Music classic Doobie Brothers releases, this masterpiece has been impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Doobie Brothers/Michael McDonald) from the original Warner Records tapes.
As another fine feature of this limited edition release, Friday Music have also included the original stunning 1972 gatefold LP cover art to further enhance your Doobie Brothers listening hours.
