Day 140

The Doobie Brothers- Takin' It To The Streets

Originally I figured all I needed by the Doobie Brothers was a greatest hits album by them. And I do have one, but when I came across this one, I picked it up to hear some of their deeper cuts.

This one's not bad. Some funky numbers, some jazzy, some rockin'. But it's clear why "Takin' It To The Streets" is the best known song on the album since it's much better than the rest. "It Keeps You Runnin'" and "Carry Me Away" are pretty cool too. And I like the funkiness of "8th Avenue Shuffle". Is that them answering back to Springsteen's "E Street Shuffle"?

That's all I really have to say about this Doobie Brothers album. I don't really have any memories with it. I've been told that Toulouse Street is the Doobie Brothers studio album to have so I'll be on the lookout for it.
