ALBUM REVIEW BY RELIX

 RELIX Magazine logo

For a band classified by many as Southern rock, The Marshall Tucker Band never seemed satisfied with just rocking.  From their beginnings in the early '70s, their sound took plenty of changes musically -- swinging, grooving, jamming and going country -- and always stretched the boundaries.  Always a confident live act, MTB brought their A game to their South Carolina Music Hall of Fame Concert, recorded at Spartanburg S.C.'s Memorial Auditorium on Sept. 19, 1995.  Stellar sound quality enhances every detail, from the excitement of the crowd to lead singer Doug Gray's spirited drawl to multi-instrumentalist Jerry Eubanks' talented turns on flute, sax and Hammond organ.  MTB keep the energy high high from the start to finish with highlights aplenty, drafting fellow legends Charlie Daniels (dig his fiery fiddle work on "Long Hard Ride") and Allman Brothers stickmen Jaimoe and Butch Trucks, who join in with Daniels on the moving tribute to deceased guitarist / songwriter Toy Caldwell, "Searchin' for a Rainbow."

Welcome 

One of the major Southern rock bands of the '70s, the Marshall Tucker Band was formed in Spartanburg, SC, in 1971 by singer Doug Gray, guitarist Toy Caldwell (born 1948, died February 25, 1993), his brother bassist Tommy Caldwell (born 1950, died April 28, 1980), guitarist George McCorkle (born 1947, died June 29th, 2007), drummer Paul Riddle, and reed player Jerry Eubanks. The group's style combined rock, country, and jazz and featured extended instrumental passages on which lead guitarist Toy Caldwell shone. The band was signed to Capricorn Records and released their debut album, The Marshall Tucker Band, in March 1973. They gained recognition through a tour with the Allman Brothers Band and found significant success during the course of the '70s, with most of their albums going gold. Their peak came with the million-selling album Carolina Dreams and its Top 15 single "Heard It in a Love Song" in 1977. Since then, the group has continued to write, record, and tour, and entertain fans from around the world. Friend them on Myspace and Facebook!
