Synopsis

Album Description
The Marshall Tucker Band, acknowledged as one of the founding fathers of the Southern rock movement, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an ongoing catalog restoration and release program. One of the first releases is their 1974 sophomore release, A New Life. It comes augmented with a live bonus track from the band?s early days on the road and has been remastered from the original analog tapes produced by Paul Hornsby. Eight months later their debut, after extensive touring with the Allman Brothers Band, MTB released their follow up A New Life (Billboard #37). The gold album included "24 Hours At A Time" and "Blue Ridge Mountain Sky" and firmly established the band as one of the leading lights in the field of Southern Rock. "The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock and roll" says founding member Doug Gray. "They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country to blues and all things in-between."
 

CD Reviews

Commercial success does not always equal the best
The Plunkster | Fairfield, OH United States | 01/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK. I realize people will disagree with me on this, and that's fine. I have worked as a DJ for 35 years now, listened to a lot of music, and hopefully formed a lot of opinions.

In my opion, "A New Life" is far and away the best release ever from The Marshall Tucker Band. so this isn't the stuff you're used to hearing on the radio. That doesn't mean it is not their best stuff. This may just be the perfect Southern rock album. Put this thing on, and believe me you are IN the Blue Ridge Mountains, just soakin' it up.

An incredible release. A must for Tucker fans."

"I believe that this album, along with "Eat A Peach" by the Allman Brother Band, is the essential "Southern Rock Album". Tuckers sophomore album captures the spirit of the early 70s southern rock movement better than any other album. From the jazzy Southern Woman to the incredible Another Cruel Love, Toy Caldwell's songwriting was never better. You Ain't Foolin' Me might be the purest "anthem" song that Marshall Tucker was so famous for in concert. The best album by maybe the most underrated live band ever."
