Editorial Reviews

A loving ode to their native South Carolina, this 1977 LP shot MTB to #23 on the pop album charts. It made a splash in the country scene, too, with the crossover hit Heard It in a Love Song ; it joins Fly Like an Eagle; Desert Skies , and the rest of the album plus a bonus live Silverado ! Back in print for the first time in years

5.0 out of 5 stars Original lineup's peak commercially and artistically August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The MTB run of truly outstanding records peaked with Carolina Deams, an lp that was deservedly their best selling. Although it's a relatively country oriented release, somehow, it also managed to break out in a big way on album rock radio, and then, of course, more mainstream radio with Heard it in a Love Song. It's an unbelievable shame that Capricorn didn't release the live follow up "Stompin' Room Only" as was planned; because as we now know (it's just been released more than 25 years later) it would have been a good career move at that time. MTB had some other good releases prior to the demise of the original band, but this was the last of the 5 star albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldie but a Goodie March 8, 2007
By Minx
Format:Audio CD
Just couldn't get the song "Heard It In A Love Song" out of my head so had to buy this.

The band excells in this album-my favorite is the flute player. I had the pleasure of hearing them live and they were rockin'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuous Dreams July 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ever since the first time I heard Can't You See and Take The Highway on their first album I became a fan of Meshall Tucker. I have slowly converted most albums to CD's and Carolina Dreams was on I didn't have. With Marshall Tucker you are always getting songs that leave you toe tapping. In Carolina Dreams you have Heard It In A Love Song to many other quality songs. The one that I think is a sleeper and I like the most on this CD/Album is I Should Have Never Started Loving You which has some great guitar and sax.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...And here come the Carolina Dreams August 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
After Long Hard Ride came Carolina Dreams. This is yet another successful album from Marshall Tucker, a Southern favorite of mine.

Don't be confused. "Fly Like an Eagle" is NOT a Steve Miller cover; it's an original song from Marshall Tucker. The one by Steve Miller may be more popular, but this one has more emotion, I think. The praise for "Heard it in a Love Song," the band's greatest hit, is well-deserved. "I Should Have Never Started Lovin' You" is the longest song on this album, and it's a fusion of rock, country, jazz, and groove (I think). It's a very fascinating experience. "Life in a Song" is a fast-moving jolly song that doesn't seem to hit the right notes for me, but then "Desert Skies" brings it up a few notches with its excellent rhythm and melodies. "Never Trust a Stranger" and "Tell it to the Devil" are fantastic songs, while the bonus track (a live performance of "Silverado") is a welcome addition.

I wouldn't say that this is Marshall Tucker's best album to date, but it's still an impressive one.

Grade: 8.9 out of 10

5.0 out of 5 stars more Marshall Tucker Band cowboy adventures July 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
You know an album's good when you go into it expecting one song ("Heard It In a Love Song") to overshadow the rest of the material and yet, when the album finishes, you'd forgotten all about the song you went in expecting to like most!

Oh now THIS is awesome. The Marshall Tucker Band lost my attention span in a few spots concerning their previous album (Long Hard Ride) but they MORE than make up for it with this masterpiece. "Heard it in a Love Song" is NOT the only worthwhile song like I ignorantly spent my entire life believing. No way. The album contains one masterpiece after another, and furthermore, I believe this is quite possibly the best musical representation of a cowboy novel ever laid down on tape.

"I Should Have Never Started Lovin' You" isn't like anything I've ever heard the Marshall Tucker Band experiment with before. It's a slow-moving, jazzy, saxophone filled ballad of some kind, and the fact it's over 7 minutes means it *better* feature likeable traits because otherwise it would get boring after a while. The melody has an extremely strong and unavoidably depressing vibe- it's not exactly pure jazz or anything like that. It really is a straight up jazz ballad, and a memorable one at that.

I have to laugh a little at the song title though. I mean, had they called it "I Never Should Have Loved You" it would have made more sense and gotten the point across easier without twisting words around in a confusing manner, but... then the magic of the lyrics wouldn't have worked, and the vocal melody would have been disappointing (or downright awkward) as well.

Back in the '70's and early '80's, it was pretty cheap to get into concerts with top bands, so I went to quite a few. Most weren't as good in person as their recordings and it was easy to see that some of them were just hammering out another gig. On the other hand, a couple surprised you in a really good way, like Marshall Tucker Band. I mis-judged them. I figured they were just another southern rock band, which wasn't a good thing, in my mind, but man, was I wrong about this band. To this day, I think they were the best live band I ever saw, and I'm pretty sure Toy Caldwell is the most under-appreciated lead guitar in the history of rock. There wasn't a weak link in the group, and they played with a joy that said they loved what they did and that spread to the audience. It was country rock, but there was a little blues, and a little jazz infused into the mix that separated Marshall Tuckers sound from anything else I've heard since. Carolina Dreams was their finest album. "I Should have never Started Loving You", and "Desert Skies" are classics, and the digital re-mastering of the original recordings finally lets you clearly hear the genius of a band in which each member was a virtuoso and yet, the sum was still greater than the parts. Great band, great collection. I've never gotten tired of it.
