Toad The Wet Sprocket – Dulcinea

I found myself reminiscing about this album, one of those I pull out and play in its entirety on regular occasions. It’s still great and it still has the power to surprise and move me even today after many re-playings. All the songs are well-chosen and seem to fit into the story of the album (so to speak) but there are three songs that will always standout to me. The lyrics are sometimes puzzling because they seem pulled from the subconscious somehow, more than tied to any specific frontal-lobe meaning. Here they are:

Anyone else have a thing for this particular album? It came out just about the time my son was born so I have a particular reason to love it more than anything else, but I would be interested to hear if others feel the same.

  1. I just noticed that six of the ten tracks that are featured on Toad’s greatest hits album come from Dulcinea. Obviouisly someone agrees with me about this album!

  2. This came out in the 90s, right? I was really out of it musically in the 90s. I do love this guy’s voice. I have an album he did with the kids from Nickel Creek called Mutual Admiration Society that I really like. He also did guest vocals on a song on the guitar’s solo album, really awesome.

  3. Yes, this album came out in 94. That’s Glen on that song, Susan? Cool, I didn’t know he did that. Toad is still touring apparently, playing mostly small venues lately. I have seen them in SLC a number of times and they are pretty great live. They have enough great songs that it makes for a pretty incredible show.

  4. One of the finest albums, end to end, ever made. I was a junior in high school when this was released and it’s indelibly imprinted on my memories of that period.
