Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

One of the best and most thorough "best of" compilations of any band, short of a multi-CD box set. The Marshall Tucker Band produced an enormous amount of work in the span of a few short years, although their career continued past that initial flurry of activity. Long considered a Southern rock band, Marshall Tucker seemed to have their biggest success with songs that drew more from their country leanings. The Best of the Marshall Tucker Band chronicles not only their commercial hits, but pays close attention to the band's more adventurous work in the process. Die-hard devotees of the group will appreciate the inclusion of studio and live versions of some of the same songs, including "Can't You See," with its lilting flute solo. "24 Hours at a Time" is represented by a live cut, while their biggest commercial success, "Heard It in a Love Song," gets only the single version in the collection. Regardless, with over 20 five songs, the double CD does not disappoint. --Steve Gdula

This was a nice package and an improvement to the Best Of I had on vynal which only had 8 songs on (a disgrace). This music is a mixture of southern country rock and jazz. It's a 2 CD set and has about 15 tracks on each CD, a big improvement to the vynal edition. The less jazzy tracks sounded a bit like The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. I've now ordered The Anthology, The First 30 Years of The Marshall Tucker Band, also a 2CD set with 5 tracks off the first CD and the whole of the second CD not on this album.

After listening to this CD, You'll become a Tuckerhead 30 Mar 2001
By Scott Rushing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great collection. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels Band, JJ Cale, The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker is so diverse. They cover Rock, Country, Jazz, and Blues. How many country bands have a guy who plays the flute? The Caldwell Brothers totally rock through all these songs and Doug Gray's voice brings it all together. Along with the popular hit, Heard It In A Love Song, the songs This Ol' Cowboy, Fire On The Mountain, Searchin' For A Rainbow, Blue Ridge Mountain Sky, Can't You See, and See You Later, I'm Gone are my personal favorites. This whole CD is awesome, you won't be dissappointed.

Most (but not all) of their great tunes 12 Mar 2000
By Kim M Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very solid album with the essential Marshall Tucker Band tracks represented. If you liked this (or haven't bought it yet), try "Where We All Belong" (I can't believe it's not offered by Amazon! - Barnes&Noble has it for $9.49). You'll get several of the tracks on this "Best Of", plus some more absolutely fabulous music, most notably "Everyday I Have The Blues" a red-hot live track of "watermelon boogie woogie" as the MTB describes it.

Good Selections 22 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I haven't heard any of my old Tucker albums for years so I can't remember if any real gems were overlooked. I owned all of the ones these were pulled from, and it appears to be real solid song selections. Most Best Of's are dubious undertakings but the inclusion of long live windouts like 24 Hours at a Time and the meditative rythms of In My own Way seem to vary the pace and open it up. This avoids the one 3 min wonder after another syndrome and honors the eclecticism of the band, unfortunately narrowcast into the jack Daniel Dixie rock school by the media. My taste are eclectic, grew up on this stuff but listen to Yo la Tengo and Massive Attack today, but I still respect what this band did. Good Collection.

Leaves you wanting more... 3 April 2006
By Jay Grabow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While this is a nice collection of MTB songs, the effect it will have on longtime Tucker fans is to leave them wanting more. If you're new to MTB, or you just want one collection that covers the highlights, this is a decent purchase. With three live tunes, you'll get a taste of MTB in their element. You'll wonder in awe how Toy Caldwell could play all those notes (with just his thumb)! Paul Riddle's drumming is amazingly fluid.

Personally, I own every MTB release that includes Toy, Tommy, Paul, George, and Doug, plus a couple of the "modern era" releases. If I had to be stranded on the proverbial island with only one "album" to play on my rigged coconut stereo, it would be MTB's "Where We All Belong". For me, it offers the best of both worlds; MTB's ability to offer great songs recorded in the studio, plus their cookin' live performances that solidify their rightful place as one of America's best live groups.

Another great recording is the recently released, "Stompin' Room Only". The cover should contain the warning: "WARNING: Listening to this disc while driving causes sudden outbursts of air-drumming or air-guitar. Please pull over before Toy Caldwell's solo on This Ol' Cowboy."

This brings me back to reviewing this "Best Of" collection. On this release, the studio version of This Ol' Cowboy is 3:40. On the cookin' live version of Stompin Room Only, the same song is 5:39, and on Where We All Belong, the song keeps you tappin' for all of 6:46. Those of us that grew up with LP's, with no remote controls, had to just let the record play. Nobody was in the habit of skipping songs. Artists knew they had to put albums together in such a way as keep you interested all the way through. One reason that I'm personally disappointed in almost every "Best Of" CD I've ever purchased is that you lose that album feel. Certainly this is true with this MTB collection. If you owned Searching for a Rainbow, Carolina Dreams, Where We All Belong, or any other MTB release, you'll sorely miss the songs that are not included on this Best Of collection. If, however, you only intend to buy one MTB release, you'll be pretty happy with this purchase.

The Best Of The Tuckers All In One Place! 17 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Marshall Tucker Band's Greatest Hits album only included 8 tracks; that is why any MTB fan should purchase this excellent collection of highlights from this very talented and musically diverse band. Covering the Capricorn years of their recording career, which was their main heyday, this album features all of the big hits, as well as some hidden favorites and wonderful live tracks. The only problems with the album are that it was not remastered and includes the 45 version recordings of some of their nicest hits, taking away from the extended instrumentals. Overall, though, this is the best way to get the MTB all in one place. I love "In My Own Way," "Ramblin," live, and "24 Hours at a Time," live.
