TOBB – Overrated (2021)

Formed in the ’80s, TOBB consists of some of the most reputed and experienced session musicians from Scandinavia. While the combo always tour as a unit performing AOR and rock&pop classic covers, since some time ago are releasing their own material.
Called by their fans ‘the Norway TOTO’, TOBB (which original name was The Original Bullshit Band) already pleased us a couple years ago with the reissue of their very good album “True To Our Sound”.
Now the guys are back with new a effort titled “Overrated“, where they deliver a sweet collection of fresh songs with an ’80s feeling and a pristine production…

TOBB – True To Our Sound [Digitally Remastered reissue] (2019)

Formed by session musicians, Norwegian band TOBB started as a playing ground for friends, all with the love for ’80s AOR / West Coast music, and since 1987 has been touring on and off, mostly playing their own cover versions of AOR classics.
In 2010 TOBB had the great fortune and honor of touring with legend Bill Champlin, and he encouraged the band to record his lost song ‘Sweet Marie’, a track that didn’t make it on the legendary Chicago 17 album.
Inspired by Champlin, TOBB started recording their own original material which had been neglected for years. The result is the album ”True To Our Sound”, and the title speaks for itself.
Now the songs have been slightly remixed / remastered, as all members thought they needed some tweaks.
