Marshall Tucker Band 

I always enjoyed the Marshall Tucker Band music and saw them twice live in the 1970's. They were founded in 1971 in Spartanburg, SC by Doug Gray, Toy Caldwell, Tommy Caldwell, George McCorkle, Paul Riddle and Jerry Eubanks. They earned seven gold and three platinum albums and have enjoyed success on the pop, country and gospel charts. 

I lost track of Marshall Tucker for around twenty years. However, with the release of their live album, Stompin' Room Only, I had to pick that up. Thereafter, I had the opportunity to explore The Marshall Tucker Anthology: The First 30 Years and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the tracks from their  latter albums are. Frequently with chronological anthology releases, the bands best material is on the first disc and the second disc just collects dust. While the first disc is certainly better, the second disc reveals very music strong throughout. This release generally selects a song or two from nearly all of their albums so it is a great orientation to their music, but not the whole story. 

I haven't had the opportunity to listen to the most of their individual albums to review them, but would if I had them. Therefore, I've provided the product descriptions and some of press release excerpts from Shout! Factory as well as credits from the Marshall Tucker Band website. 

From what I've heard and read I can share these recommendations. The Marshall Tucker Bands big hits are a must and they can be purchased either by getting the individual albums, the The Marshall Tucker Anthology: The First 30 Years, or live album, Stompin’ Room Only. Their live renditions are worth getting in addition to the studio versions. 

If you take the compilation route and like their country side, get Where a Country Belongs, to complement Anthology. There are only a handful of songs that overlap and between them you'll have like 30 different songs. Further, I did notice that some of their releases are very inexpensive, namely Just Us , and Face Down In the Blues, and the tracks from these albums I'm familiar with are quite good.

Stompin’ Room Only
The Marshall Tucker Band, acknowledged as one of the founding fathers of the Southern rock movement, is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a recording group with a catalog restoration and release program. Stompin’ Room Only, part of this collection, is the long rumored and highly anticipated album of live material recorded between 1974 and 1976.

Recorded in London, Manchester (during their only European tour), in Milwaukee, and at Charlie Daniels’ annual “Volunteer Jam” in Murfreesboro during the years 1974-1976, the album was originally prepared for release in 1977 by producer Paul Hornsby and included the original lineup.

In an unusual series of events, the album’s release was first delayed by Capricorn Records and, ultimately, never released, as the master tapes could not be found for more than a quarter century. They were recently discovered in pristine condition and that long-awaited album, the virtual “holy grail” of jam band music is now available.

Although The Marshall Tucker Band is famous for its live prowess, there has never been a DVD featuring the original lineup of the band--until now. Carolina Dreams Tour '77 captures MTB onstage performing their biggest hits: "Heard It In A Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," "Can't You See" and many more. In addition to the DVD, this 3-disc set also contains the same concert spread across two CDs. Either way, it's a wonderful slice of MTB in its early prime.

Live On Long Island 4-18-80

Press Release

LOS ANGELES, CA -- On August 22nd, Shout! Factory and Ramblin’ Records release Live On Long Island 4-18-80, the last performance featuring all of the original members of the Marshall Tucker Band. MTB’s lively, freewheeling spirit and sound have outlasted the odds but fans still reminisce about the original line up. This new two-disc set of the historic Nassau Coliseum show will remind fans how the group rocked with Tommy Caldwell’s bass leading the way. Live On Long Island 4-18-80, the first time an entire concert by the original band is being released, will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.98. 

Live On Long Island 4-18-80 was recorded on the final stop of the 1980 tour, in support of their Billboard charting album Tenth, just 10 days before Tommy Caldwell died in a tragic car accident. The show was the last time the original Marshall Tucker Band -- Tommy Caldwell (bass), Toy Caldwell (lead guitar), George McCorkle (rhythm guitar), Paul Riddle (drums), Jerry Eubanks (flute) and Doug Gray (vocals) -- played together. Tracks from Tenth such as “It Takes Time,” “Sing My Blues” and “Cattle Drive” showcase the band’s slick new sound as they take a detour from their country roots. MTB delve into their old favorites from their hit-heavy catalog with “Can’t You See” and “Fire On The Mountain.” The crowd goes crazy for MTB’s biggest single, “Heard It In A Love Song,” which landed on both the Billboard pop and country singles charts. Also warmly welcomed are the favorites “Last Of The Singing Cowboys,” “Ramblin’” and “Take The Highway.” 

Since forming in Spartanburg, SC, in 1973, The Marshall Tucker Band has released 21 studio albums and produced massive hit singles, including “Can’t You See” and “Fire On The Mountain,” among others. Led by original singer Doug Gray, MTB has experienced over nearly three decades of recording and touring and continues to be a major Southern Rock act. The Marshall Tucker Band still thrives with a year-round touring schedule, continuing to bring their great music to their devoted fans.

The Marshall Tucker Anthology: The First 30 Years  
Along with Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band is the definitive Southern rock band. Over their storied career, they’ve seamlessly blended rock, country, jazz, pop, blues and soul into a beguiling blend of the best music that The South — and America — has to offer. The 2-disc Anthology is the first collection to pull together the highlights from their 30-year career.

It contains not only their biggest hits—“Fire On The Mountain,” “Heard It In A Love Song,” “Last Of The Singing Cowboys,” “Can’t You See,” “Take The Highway”—but also such fan favorites as “Where A Country Boy Belongs,” “I Should Have Never Started Lovin’ You,” and “Cattle Drive.” 

Since MTB’s on-stage prowess is legendary, a live video clip has been included as a bonus. Enhanced content: Fire On The Mountain (bonus live video clip)

Press Release
To celebrate a career that has outlasted most marriages, the Marshall Tucker Band has created their very own 30th anniversary gift for their fans – a double disc compilation of their favorite songs culled from the past three decades. Spanning 18 studio albums, Marshall Tucker Band Anthology: The First 30 Years is the most comprehensive collection from the band to date In addition, the collection includes an enhanced CD component featuring live concert footage from a 1981 performance. The First 30 Years marks the first time that each and every one of the band’s most popular songs have been assembled on one collection. 

Long ago labeled ‘Southern Rock’ simply for lack of a better phrase, the Marshall Tucker Band actually performs far more sophisticated music that the moniker suggests, mixing up country and blues, rock and rhythm & blues, jazz and gospel. Only the MTB could put a flute next to a slide guitar and make it magical. And for the record, there is no Marshall Tucker in the band. It’s just an inside peek into the band’s quirky sense of humor.

While their lineup may have evolved over the years, their roots-driven rock has remained the same, much to the delight of their devoted fans. It is because of those fans that the band is one of the most successful and enduring live acts on the road today, consistently performing to sell-out crowds around the country. Marshall Tucker Band Anthology: The First 30 Years includes 33 iconic anthems such as “Fire On The Mountain,” “Last Of The Singing Cowboys,” “Can’t You See,” “Take The Highway,” the Top 20 hit “Heard It In A Love Song,” and their signature song, “Ramblin’.”

The Marshall Tucker Band  
1973
The Marshall Tucker Band, acknowledged as one of the founding fathers of the Southern rock movement, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an ongoing catalog restoration and release program. One of the first releases is their eponymous 1973 TMTB debut. It comes augmented with a live bonus track from the band’s early days on the road and has been remastered from the original analog tapes produced by Paul Hornsby.

The Marshall Tucker Band was originally released by Capricorn Records in March of 1973 (Billboard #29). The album included “Can’t You See,” a song considered the band’s “anthem.” 

“The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock and roll” says founding member Doug Gray. “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country to blues and all things in-between.”

A New Life  
1974
The Marshall Tucker Band, acknowledged as one of the founding fathers of the Southern rock movement, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an ongoing catalog restoration and release program. One of the first releases is their 1974 sophomore release, A New Life. It comes augmented with a live bonus track from the band’s early days on the road and has been remastered from the original analog tapes produced by Paul Hornsby.

Eight months later their debut, after extensive touring with the Allman Brothers Band, MTB released their follow up A New Life (Billboard #37). The gold album included “24 Hours At A Time” and “Blue Ridge Mountain Sky” and firmly established the band as one of the leading lights in the field of Southern Rock.

“The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock and roll” says founding member Doug Gray. “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country to blues and all things in-between.”

Marshall Tucker - cd reviews and discography
Where We All Belong  
1974
The Marshall Tucker Band arrived at a crossroads on its third album, Where We All Belong. With two successful LPs already under their belt, the Spartanburg, SC sextet was on the verge of even greater popularity. Marshall Tucker’s eclectic brand of musical Americana had won them a fervent following as a touring act. Now — thanks to lead guitarist Toy Caldwell’s knack for hook-laden songwriting—they were edging closer to breaking into Top 40 radio.

Where We All Belong gives a taste of both ends of the Marshall Tucker spectrum: the expansive jam band and the more tightly-focused recording act. Released in 1974 as a two-record LP, the album found the band refining its own distinctive brand of country-rock on the studio cuts. Anticipating the mass appeal of cowboy culture a few years later, Toy and his band adopted a bit of a Wild West attitude in their music. For all the prominence of pedal steel guitar and down-home lyric imagery in its tracks, though, Where We All Belong was far more adventuresome than most mainstream country music of its time.
Balancing the well-honed studio cuts were the in-concert recordings that round out the album. The genre-spanning versatility and instrumental excellence of Marshall Tucker’s membership is caught here in all its unfettered glory. As a live act, the band had the power to drive audiences delirious with their soaring jams, as these recordings demonstrate.

Searchin’ for a Rainbow  
1975
Old West dreams meet Southern memories in the tracks of Searchin’ for a Rainbow, The Marshall Tucker Band’s fourth album. Released in 1975, this song collection found the group refining its multi-faceted sound into an appealing country-rock essence. Still present were the jazz and blues-based elements that had always made Marshall Tucker a distinctive unit. By dressing up their music in Western garb, the band found a way to reach a huge new audience—all it took was a little “Fire On The Mountain” to light the way.

“We’d found a bit more direction on how to design songs for a record,” says lead singer Doug Gray. “Our record company Capricorn had always said, ‘Try to give us something that would work on the radio.’ We tried to do that, and at the same time please each other. We were known as a jamming band. This was the first time we really tried to give them Marshall Tucker’s interpretation of what a hit song was.”

Helping to spur things on was “Fire On The Mountain,” the lead track off Searchin’ for a Rainbow. Released as a single in the fall of ’75, the tune reached #38 on the pop charts. A vivid, Old West, lyric-storyline combined with bluegrass-tinged instrumental licks and an ear-grabbing chorus brought Marshall Tucker its first Top 40 hit.

Long Hard Ride  
1976
It sounds like the plot of a classic Western saga: Six young men ride out of the South Carolina uplands seeking fame and adventure, dazzling crowds and creating a legend along the way. Actually, the above scenario describes The Marshall Tucker Band’s rise to mass popularity in the mid-1970s. Like true Sunday-matinee cowboy heroes, the band made it thanks to a restless spirit and a tender heart, blazing a country-rock trail for later artists to follow.

Long Hard Ride, Marshall Tucker’s 1976 album, came on the heels of their first Top 40 radio hit, “Fire On The Mountain.” Striving to build upon this breakthrough, they delivered an album that mixed country, rock and blues into a distinctive whole. A good number of the tunes were radio-friendly numbers that reined in the band’s jamming tendencies. But the individual playing styles that made Marshall Tucker unique clearly shone through, making Long Hard Ride a worthy addition to their catalogue.

Greetings From South Carolina

Greetings is the most country-influenced of all of MTB’s albums, full of band-written tunes in both the wistful and the rollicking modes.

Press Release
Greetings From South Carolina is a 10-song illustration of Marshall Tucker’s just-relax-and-enjoy-yourself attitude. Released in 1983, this album was the last recording of the original MTB line-up before major changes were made to the band’s players the following year.

The Next Adventure  
The Marshall Tucker Band, in their fourth decade of music-making, keep the fire alive on their latest album, The Next Adventure. The mix of songs on the new album is a Tucker fan’s dream come true. “Why Am I Crying?” was written by legendary original member Toy Caldwell. Three are songs penned by original member George McCorkle, “The Guitar Playing Man,” “Jesus Never Had A Motorcycle,” and “I Love You That Way” are classic additions to the Marshall Tucker Band songbook.

Live From The Garden State 1981  
The Marshall Tucker Band celebrates the release of its first full-length concert on DVD with Live From The Garden State 1981 from their legendary 1981 MTV concert. MTB’s homemade blend of rock, country and jazz featured the band’s acclaimed songwriter and guitarist, Toy Caldwell. The band found enormous success during the 1970s, with most of their albums going gold. 

This DVD features the original lineup—with the exception of Tommy Caldwell, who died the year before—performing the best material from their classic period. It’s an essential release!

Personnel:
Doug Gray: Vocals, Percussion; Toy Caldwell: Lead Guitar, Vocals; George McCorkle Guitar, Vocals; Paul T. Riddle, drums; Franklin Wilkie: Bass, Jerry Eubanks; Flute, Keyboards, Sax, Backing vocals.

Press Release
DVD Bonus Material Includes Documentary “Which One Is Marshall Tucker?” As Well As Interviews With Marshall Tucker Band Members and friends Travis Tritt And Charlie Daniels Jolyn Matsumuro

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Hard to believe, but one of the greatest touring acts of the past three decades has never released a live concert DVD… until now. 

Filmed for broadcast on MTV in 1981, Live From The Garden State features the band’s original lineup, (with the exception of Tommy Caldwell, who passed away the previous year), front man Doug Gray, lead guitarist Toy Caldwell, rhythm guitarist George McCorkle, drummer Paul Riddle, and multi-instrument (flute, saxophone, keyboards, vocals) player Jerry Eubanks. The DVD also includes a brand new biographical documentary, “Which One Is Marshall Tucker?,” filled with interviews with the surviving band members, and friends Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels.

After forming in 1971, the Marshall Tucker Band spent the better part of the ‘70s touring non-stop with the likes of the Allman Brothers Band, and released a string of platinum-selling albums. In 1980, bass player Tommy Caldwell died tragically in a car accident, and in 1983, George, Paul and Toy decided to leave the band. In 1984, Gray and Eubanks recruited new band members, and one of the most beloved southern rock bands on the touring circuit continued to tour and release new albums.

Carolina Dreams: Tour 77 ~ The Marshall Tucker Band  
Editorial comment. The quality of this release is fair. I watched it through. The CD isn't much better. It's a good souvenir for hard core fans, no doubt. Playing it at low volumes as background on the computer seemed to be a better experience than playing it through the flat screen. I really enjoy watching Toy on pedal steel during "Fire on the Mountain." The version of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is a long jammed out version, another highlight. Too bad the quality isn't great, because these guys are really good and it reminds me of why I saw them live several times. 

Product Description
Although The Marshall Tucker Band is famous for its live prowess, there has never been a DVD featuring the original lineup of the band--until now. Carolina Dreams Tour '77 captures MTB onstage performing their biggest hits: "Heard It In A Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," "Can't You See" and many more. 

In addition to the DVD, this 3-disc set also contains the same concert spread across two CDs. Either way, it's a wonderful slice of MTB in its early prime.
