The Marshall Tucker Band (1973)

Gold @ US position #29


Cover art... not real distinctive and that good. The material outshines the art.  ;)


Despite what Wiki says about the origins of the bands name, George McCorkle mentions the band practiced in Marshall Tuckers warehouse that sold albums. On facing a gig in a hurry, they had to come up with a name and quickly decided on the Marshall Tucker Band.

So in 1973, the boys put out their first release simply called The Marshall Tucker Band. It contains the now classic and iconic Can't You See. One thing I want you take note of is the amazing lead guitar duties of Toy Caldwell. Watch as he does all guitar, including lead with just his thumb. That's Toy singing this classic hit. Oh and that's Charlie Daniels adding the very cool fiddle.
