Stampede to this bargain,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stampede/ Takin It To The Streets (Audio CD)
Following the success of 'The Captain & Me' & 'What Were Once Vices' the Doobies critical star sunk without trace in the UK - this was a travesty which this double aims to redress. 'Stampede' from the mid 70s is a superb Americana record (whatever that means) featuring Ry Cooder & Curtis Mayfield with stand tracks such as 'Music Man', 'I Cheat The Hangman' & 'Rainy Day Crossroad Blues' it's undiscovered gem of a record. The second record 'Takin' It To The Streets' sees the band shift away from their country/folk roots to a more sophisticated soul sound with Michael McDonald at the helm - that said it does contain some fine songs 'Losin' End' being MM's best ever song. There are half a dozen bonus songs and for once these enhance the record.
Over 70 minutes with hardly dud song - highly recommended.
