DOOBIE BROTHERS: TAKIN' IT TO THE STREETS by The Doobie Brothers on CD
Mobile Fidelity gold Disc SACD pressing of the 1976 album from the American rockers. Takin' It To The Streets marks a high point in the Doobie Brothers' career. Benefiting from the breakup of Steely Dan's core band, the California group's mellowed-out 1976 album is heavily influenced by the key contributions of former Dan members Jeff Baxter and Jeff McDonald. The latter are responsible for an increase in soulful melodies and Latin-fused rhythms, which help make Takin' It To The Streets among the era's most enjoyable recordings. Mobile Fidelity's hybrid stereo SACD captures the nuances of the splendid guitar interplay, brassiness of the Memphis Horns section, and opens up a dynamic gateway to the high frequencies.
