This quintessential southern rock outfit wasn't so different in its approach as friends and lablemates the Allman Brothers. Both groups embraced an eclecticism, mixing elements of country, blues, gospel, jazz, and southern-fried rock & roll. The Tucker Band reveled in fine musicianship and retained a tight, sophisticated sound without forsaking a simple elegance. Toy Caldwell's "Can't You See" is still played almost hourly (or so it seems) on some stations in the south. This debut album is a must-hear for anyone with a taste for southern cooking. --Richard Gowen
Look Beyond "Can't You See"

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The debut album of the Marshall Tucker Band contains the band's signature song "Can't You See." For a brief time back in the mid-1970s, MTB challenged Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers for southern rock supremacy. Less rocking and more country oriented than either of those bands, MTB created some excellent music beyond their occasional hit. After "Can't You See," the debut album contains the excellent songs "Take the Highway," "See You Later, I'm Gone" and the gospel flavored "My Jesus Told Me So." The rest of the material isn't bad, either. Overall, MTB's debut album is a fine example of mid 70s southern rock."
