The Marshall Tucker Band
Where A Country Boy Belongs
This compilation collects the cream of the crop of country flavored tracks from The Marshall Tucker Band, from the beginning in 1972 all the way up to 2006 including two brand new tracks.
Of course, “Heard It In A Love Song,” is included, the band’s biggest hit and a country-rock crossover. There are 32 tracks in all, including Toy Caldwell’s “Too Stubborn,” a country ditty once covered by Kitty Wells. There’s “When Love Begins To Fade,” “Blue Ridge Mountain Sky,” and Ronnie Godfrey’s excellent “Time Don’t Pass By Here.” Then there’s the “Stay In The Country,” a song that brought the band back into the spotlight in 1990.
Two very nice new tracks are also included, “Cold Day In July” and the Chris Hicks penned “Never Again,” a song being played currently on country radio.
It’s an excellent collection, and the producers obviously took great care in arranging the songs. They flow very nicely.
The Tucker boys have always played rock-n-roll, blues, gospel, and Southern rock - but underneath it all, there’s always been a firm foundation in country music.
