Marshall Tucker Band S/T

It was 1972, and I was visiting my Grandparents in Daytona Beach. It was late Friday night, not much on TV, but when I fliping throught the channels, (yes, you actually had to get up and turn the knob) there was a concert on from South Carolina, it was the MTB. I sat there for an hour and couldn't believe the energy and music from these guys. When they played, "Can't You See" I kept turning it up and up, I was mesmerized. They played the whole MTB first LP and then some. Shortly after that the MTB S/T LP came out. Still their best.

Sides 1 and 2

On my big brother's copy of this record that we'd listen to when I was a kid, "Hillbilly Band" begins the album, and I think "Take the Highway" ends it (though I could be wrong). I'm thinking that the vinyl sides 1 and 2 were flipped for this release. ("Everyday" is a bonus track, incidentally, not on the original.)

Listening to "Hillbilly Band" again, it strikes me how similar it sounds to the "country" side of the Grateful Dead. I never thought of them as an influence on the MTB, but who knows?
