One of my all-time favorite bands is Toto.
They began in 1977, in Van Nuys, CA. The original two founding members were Steve Porcaro and David Paitch. They quickly added Jeff Porcaro, Steve Lukather, and three or four others who had been playing with other bands. They became one of the most technically proficient and versatile bands of all time.
This album includes a few of their most famous songs such as, “Africa”, “Hold the Line”, and “Rosanna”, which was song of the year (1983) and album of the year at the Grammys.
Their offerings of classic rock, pop, and progressive rock have lasted over the years and continue to be great nostalgia for Baby Boomers like me. Try the sound. You can find many of Toto’s great songs on Freegal, an app available through Lincoln Township Public Library.
