The first collection to feature hits from their entire career! Along with Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band is the definitive Southern rock band. Over their storied career, they?ve seamlessly blended rock, country, jazz, pop, blues and soul into a beguiling blend of the best music that The South ? and America ? has to offer. The 2-disc Anthology is the first collection to pull together the highlights from their 30-year career. It contains not only their biggest hits?"Fire On The Mountain," "Heard It In A Love Song," "Last Of The Singing Cowboys," "Can?t You See," "Take The Highway"?but also such fan favorites as "Where A Country Boy Belongs," "I Should Have Never Started Lovin? You," and "Cattle Drive." Since MTB?s on-stage prowess is legendary, a live video clip has been included as a bonus.

A Very Good Anthology of the Band

"I am not a long-time fan of Marshall Tucker. I have never owned any of their previous albums. I only knew a few of their songs from listening to classic rock stations, such as "Can't You See", "Fire on the Mountain" and "I Heard it In a Love Song". I always wanted to buy their standard Greatest Hits album, but just never did. Lately I have been replacing aged, early release compact discs with newly "remastered" versions, which usually sound far superiour and contain bonus material. When I found out the Marshall Tucker Band's cataloge was being remastered, I knew a two-disc set would be forthcoming (just like the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, etc.) It was worth the wait. I played the set while comuting to work the week I bought it. I really liked disc one. Lots of good songs that I have just discovered. I like long, progressive-type, "jamming" tunes. Marshall Tucker's got a few of them in here. The set does contain a little too much "country" for my tastes, but that's who they were: a "Country-Rock" band. Recommended for the casual fan or long-time listener, unless of course you want to go out and buy all their albums separetely. To answer another reviewer's question, there are no live tracks except for the bonus video of "Fire on the Mountain" playable on one's computer. I also think all the tracks are full-length, "album" cuts, no singles here. The Sound quality is excellent! Also includes a 22-page booklet of the Band's history, discography, and a family tree of musicians who have played in Marshall Tucker over the years."
Too much left off

"The Marshall Tucker Band is perfect for a 2 disc career overview because save for the band's first two releases, its albums have been spotty, one or two very good songs with one or two toss-aways and three or four decent songs. It would seem that those in charge of such an anthology would have an easy time selecting the right songs, because at least half of the selections should be made without any question, and another quarter of the selections made with only the slightest hesitation.
Leaving 'This Ole Cowboy' off a Marshall Tucker Band anthology is like leaving 'Saturday Night Special' or 'That Smell' off a Lynyrd Skynyrd anthology. It is not the band's biggest 'hit,' but it certainly is among the handful of the band's greatest performances.
Nor is 'This Ole Cowboy' the only grating omission. 'Hillbilly Band' from the self-titled debut and 'Blue Ridge Mountain Sky' from the second album A New Life definitely belong. Another 4 or 5 songs from the early years probably belong on any MTB anthology.

"Have really enjoyed this CD. Brings back a lot of memories from the 70's. Those were the days when music was music. My 16 year old son even liked it."
