Marshall Tucker Band-Where we all belong

Where we all belong
The Marshall Tucker Band's third album called "Where We All Belong" was originally a double album which consisted of a "Studio Album" and a "Live Album". Released in 1974, "Where We All Belong" left no question as to as to why these Spartanberg, South Carolina boys were fast becoming one of southern rocks best groups to emerge from the land of Dixie. By combining elements of country and blues and mixing in some good old rock, they had a sound unlike other groups at the time. "Where We All Belong" enlists such artists as Charlie Daniel playing his fiddle on "This Ol' Cowboy" and Elvin Bishop adding his touch of slide guitar to "Where A Country Boy Belongs", but it's lead guitarist Toy Caldwell who clearly shows why he's one of southern rocks most gifted guitarists on songs such as "This Ol Cowboy", "How Can I Slow Down", and "Now She's Gone" (not to mentioned the "live" songs). The "live" versions of "Ramblin'", "24 Hours At A Time", "Everyday (I Have The Blues)", and "Take The Highway" all of which were recorded on July 11, 1974 in Milwaukee's Uhlein Hall Performing Arts Center absolutely smoke. The entire group is as tight as ever! This remastered version of "Where We All Belong" also contains a bonus "live" track called "See You Later, I'm Gone". The remastering on this disc is excellent with crisp highs, increased midrange and bass. If you enjoy listening to The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Charlie Daniels Band and The Outlaws (to name a few) then you owe it to yourself to add this to your collection.
