Doobie Brothers 5/15/19

Set for release on June 28th is The Doobie Brothers: Live From The Beacon Theatre. The double-disc set features the band’s first gigs at the hallowed New York City venue in 25 years. The Doobies returned to perform its classic albums, Toulouse Street from 1972 and the following year’s The Captain And Me in their entirety.

The set, which will be released as a double-CD, double-CD/DVD, and Blu-ray version, was captured last November 15th and 16th.

Toulouse Street featured such instant classics as “Listen To The Music,” “Rockin’ Down The Highway” and “Jesus Is Just Alright.” 1973’s The Captain And Me featured such standouts as “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove,” and fan favorites “South City Midnight Lady,” and “Without You.”

Co-founder Tom Johnston told us prior to the Beacon gigs that the band was actually rehearsing the material for the shows while on the road: [“We’ve been workin’ on it at soundchecks and we’ll be rehearsing it in our off time after we get off the road. ‘Should be quite a trip — we’ve never done anything like this, I’m lookin’ forward to it and it seems like a fun thing to do. I’ve always been curious how people would react to hearing it sequenced live, y’know, playing it live in album sequence as opposed to the way you’d normally play live. ‘Cause it’s a different thing altogether, listening to record than it is to a live performance.”] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . .
