Doobie Brothers: Rockin' Down The Highway

From the Doobie Brothers’ second album “Toulouse Street” – the album that put the band on the map – our Friday Flipside is “Rockin’ Down the Highway.” This Tom Johnston song was the “B” side to the bands interpretation of “Jesus is Just Alright” – a song originally recorded by the Arthur Reid Singers. The Doobies’ version charted as 35.

While the band’s first album only made it to 210 on the album charts, its successor “Toulouse Street” peaked at 21 and was certified platinum. “Rockin’ Down the Highway” was originally was released as the flip to the second single; however, it was later issued as a single proper and it failed to chart. In light of this, we’ll keep it in its flip side status for today’s post.
