About This Episode
The Marshall Tucker Band came
together as a young, hungry, and driven six-piece outfit in
Spartanburg, South Carolina in 1972, and they've been tearing it up
on stages across the globe ever since. The band's music catalog,
consisting of more than 20 studio albums and a score of live
releases, has racked up multi-platinum album sales many times over.
A typically rich MTB setlist is bubbling over with a healthy dose
of hits like the heartfelt singalong "Heard It in a Love Song," the
insistent pleading of "Can't You See," the testifying travelogue
warning of "Fire on the Mountain," the wanderlust gallop of "Long
Hard Ride," and the unquenchable yearning pitch of "Ramblin'," to
name but a few.
