The Marshall Tucker Band – The Marshall Tucker Band (1973)


Release Date: April 1973
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock, Southern Rock, Country Rock
Label: Capricorn
USA (Spartanburg, South Carolina)


Taking a page from their Capricorn Records labelmates and Southern rock contemporaries the Allman Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band issued a self-titled debut blending the long and winding psychedelic and jam band scene with an equally languid and otherwise laid-back country-rock flavor. Their free-spirited brand of Southern rock was a direct contrast to the badass rebel image projected by the Outlaws or Lynyrd Skynyrd. This difference is reflected throughout this 1973 long-player.
