This is my first and maybe only review, which I had to make as I find it difficult to believe that this album has not been noticed. This is the best progressive country album I have ever heard; it is still my favourite and after 30 years, I still play it more than any other album on a regular basis. The guitar licks are superb, played with the THUMB not a plectrum. The flute and sax are out of this world and when they come together in the live performance of 'Can't you see' the result is one of the best live tracks you will ever hear. Buy it.

Some of the best song writing the late Toy Caldwell (and George McCorkel)ever did. All of the lyrics were written with a western theme and the music has a heavy "country" flavor, right down the extensive use of the slide guitar. There are no bad songs and Doug Grays voice is at its best. This album/CD ranks right behind "Where we all Belong" on my MTB list.

This is one of those releases which can bring a tear to ones eye and flood your memories of the good times it soundtracked.
The Caldwell bros were such a talent and are missed by many. Rest in Peace and play on.

HASH(0x896e8630) out of 5 stars Call it country, rock, or anything else. Just call it good. 25 Mar. 2002
By Jim Toms - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to get too detailed about this album due to its relatively short length, but what is here is fantastic. Released in 1975 when the MTB was churning out albums one after another, Searchin' for a Rainbow has been described as a country album and even more so than others that were released in the 70's. However, if one listens to the band's self-titled debut effort from 1973, they get the sense that there is little difference between this album and the others of the same time period. Bottom line: both albums are excellent.
Turning back to this one, SFAR begins with "Fire on the Mountain" which is as good as any MTB song there is (I also said that about "Take the Highway" in my review of their first album and I stand by that--both are unbeatable). Toy Caldwell's (r.i.p.) steel guitar really makes the song. The title song is another gem with Dicky Betts from The Allman Brothers Band providing the guitar solo. "Virginia" is absolute pure gold and I've been told is/was a fan favorite at live shows. Other great songs include "Bob Away My Blues" and "Keep Me from All Wrong".
It makes no difference if you call this country, country-rock, rock and roll or whatever. Just call it what it is: good.

I bought this album in high school in 1976. It was one of my favorite albums then and is one of my favorite CD's now. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys great southern music.

HASH(0x88ffc24c) out of 5 stars One of My All Time Faves 8 Mar. 2003
By G. J Wiener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A definite five star recording. Eight songs and all of them classics to my ears. Love the poignant opening track, Fire On The Mountain with a stunning acoustic guitar arrangement. Numbers like Walking' And Talkin' and Bob Away My Blues have a soothing jazz feel. During my college days I can recall a die hard Motown/Soul fan liking these two tunes. It probably was one of his few forays into rock and country music. Can't You See is just brimming with a rock n roll spirit as Toy Caldwell's vocal and guitar solo are both just super in a live setting.
The Marshall Tucker Band certainly cover a lot of ground on this fine release. The instrumental arrangments just captivate my ear. Pick it up at once as I feel its their best work.
