A Classic Marshall Tucker Album Newly Remastered Just Us, one of the most highly regarded of all of MTB?s albums, was the first that they produced themselves and the first to be recorded in their custom-built studio in Spartansburg, SC. New member Ronnie Godfrey brought a number of self-penned songs to the sessions, and his fiery piano playing reenergized the band. Overall, Just Us is just that?the sound of a great band kicking back in the studio, doing what they do best.
Marshall Tucker's Last Great Album Until 2004

"JUST US was Marshall Tucker's illustrious followup to the miserable TUCKERIZED, but, unfortunately, its last great album until 2004. This time the band produced itself, and blind keyboardist Ronnie Godfrey, now fully integrated into the band, proved that his blindness was no handicap, contributing greatly to the writing here. You would think that Godfrey would spur the band on to further masterpieces, but unfortunately, the group hit a slide immediately afterwards from which it would not recover until the astonishing BEYOND THE HORIZON, a problem caused by the departure of all but two of the band's members. Nevertheless, you shouldn't pass this CD up."

"Marshall Tucker Band has been around since the early 70's and I bought every album they ever made (plus I probably went to 4 or 5 of their concerts). With the advent of cd's, a person has to go about replacing all these records, if you can find them. Two of the original records, Tenth and Just Us from the early 80's recently became available and of course I bought them immediately. Gratefully so as it turns out, I had almost forgotten how good these two albums were. Just Us is an excellent album with Toy Caldwell showing just how the guitar should be played, Doug Gray's strong lead vocals, Paul Riddle 'Mr. Automatic' on the drums, Jerry Eubanks on horns and George McCorkle on acoustic guitar. Unfortunately, Toy's brother Tommy had recently died and was replaced on bass, but the album is still an excellent effort and worth the purchase. If you happen to be a Tuckerhead, you won't be disapointed. Not quite as good as Tenth or Where We All Belong (the fabulous and somewhat rare MTB live album from 74), but Just Us is a must buy."
