    Souther Rock At Its Best

    It's not often that the first 5 or 6 albums by a band are of outstanding quality, especially one which doesn't have a pedigree outside the South. However, with the Marshall Tucker Band, they practically defined the whole scope of Southern Rock. The Allmans were rock with a capital "R", while there were a host of other relatively minor bands which followed in their footsteps trying to break into the 70's Pop charts. The Tucker band stayed true to their "school" and produced music which combined rock, country, jazz, blues, soul and jams. Just listen to their first 5 or 6 albums, from their 1st to when Tommy Caldwell (a superb bassist) died and you cannot help but be amazed by their range, growth and musicality. The band had a superb guitarist and chief songwriter in (also, the late)Toy Caldwell, a passionate singer in Doug Grey and a gutsy and inventive bass player in Tommy Caldwell. The others weren't short of skill either. This Anthology covers about half Toy Caldwell era and half post-Toy, the former being, by far, the best material. The post-Toy material is pretty good and worth the purchase of this album alone, but if you want to have a full Tucker experience then get their Toy/Tommy albums and drift off into the sunset. If you can find any Toy era Tucker DVD's then get them also he will knock your Southern socks off.
