Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1978 and discontinued in 2000, Greatest Hits contained just 8 songs. It has now been expanded by an additional 6 songs, making this the most complete look ever at their crucial 70s recordings for Capricorn Records. Contains the hits Can t You See, Heard It In A Love Song, Fire On The Mountain and Take The Highway. Includes five rare 45 rpm single versions! Newly remastered, with an 8-page booklet containing detailed notes and rare photos.

Customer Reviews

I had the album and wanted to be able to play the cd in my car.
M E
There are a couple of slower tempo tunes, but the crux of the album is rock with good harmonies.
Ronald Giranio
The content of this CD is a darn good, as is the sound quality of the recordings.

First off I'm a huge fan of The Marshall Tucker Band.
Unfortunately, whoever "remastered" this is NOT a fan!

FIVE songs have been massacred- they have been edited, shortened, solos have been completely removed, etc. It absolutely disgusts me.
The songs that have been butchered are: Can't You See, Heard It In A Love Song, Searchin For A Rainbow, This Ol Cowboy, and Long Hard Ride.

I'd recommend you not buy this on principle. But I'm not sure who if anyone WOULD want this- no fan would want it, no potential fan would want it.
Fortunately, if you are looking for mp3 versions, all of the originals except "This Ol Cowboy" are available on Amazon. The original of "This Ol Cowboy" is available on iTunes however.

Good luck.

The artwork on the cover is great and the tracks selected make this a fine album. My only disappointment is that two of The Marshall Tucker Band's biggest hits, "CAN'T YOU SEE" and "HEARD IT IN A LOVE SONG" are "single versions" (shorter play versions) and not the original full length album versions which were longer. And as we all know.... LONGER IS BETTER.

However, "FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN" (my other favorite) seems to be the original long play album version. I found it very strange that they decided to include the shorter play "single versions" of their two biggest hits, but yet included 7 minute versions of lesser known songs. What the heck is up with that?

Other than that this CD was a bargain for $7 at Wal-mart.

My son bought this one for me and I was so excited to listen to it on the way to work, anytime. Man was I disappointed! This is without a doubt the worst sound "remastering" of any CD I ever listened to. It's so bad that I just can't understand how anyone would think this is a good CD or would want to sell it with their name on it. All frequencies are over driven. When I fist played it, it felt like I had been hit with a mallet. That wouldn't be a problem ordinarily, eh? Just turn it down right? I did that. I turned down the bass boost on my system, and I adjusted the mid range to about half my normal listening level. The treble was making my ears bleed so I turned it down as far as it would go. It still was ear piercing to the point of being very irritating - just no fun to listen to. My system is admittedly not a great amp, Kenwood, produces good sound for all my other music though, especially with my Polk Audio speakers. My son had no way of knowing that this is a trash, rip-off, cheap way of making a living for some unscrupulous jerk in the music industry, but now you know. I hope Amazon allows this review to be posted because I'm just trying to save you the disappointment I experienced.

UPDATE (later, same day): Here's how I fixed the cd - It's a bit of effort, but maybe worth it for some of you. 1. I downloaded Audacity, watched a couple of tutorials, and then opened each tune and used the Low Pass Filter. I set that filter for 6db of attenuation and the frequency for 2000 hertz. After saving each song with a slightly different name, 2. I opened Media Monkey and had it search for new music (which I had in a new folder I created). After selecting each song, I had MM burn a new CD with the volume leveling set to 92db. The result is a CD that sounds pretty darn normal. It was worth it for me anyway.

10/25 - I ran the low pass filter again setting the frequency at Audacity's default 1000 hertz - even better results.

Who ever came up with this brilliant idea is no fan of Marshall Tucker or music for that matter. It seems to be the trend today to release single versions of classic tunes when a new compilation is released. I guess this is what happens when you have salesmen involved in the art. A single version of 'Can't You See'? Seriously, who wants half a song? I wish the record labels would do us music fans a favor and release the entire songs! Add another disc, omit a song if need be, but please don't butcher the music. Music on AM radio died decades ago, for a reason, no need to revist it.

I suggest fans who are looking for a MTB remastered compilation to pick up 'Anthology: The First 30 Years'. One major draw back to this compilation though is that it is missing 'This Ol' Cowboy'. Which in my opinion is quite baffling to say the least. This is why I always prefer the collect the original releases. MTB released them back in 2004. If your budget allows it, it is by far the way to go.

I have been a long time fan of the Marshall Tucker Band and have always loved their music. My introduction to them occurred when I moved to Spartanburg SC in 1982 and my office was in the same building as their office. So I have a somewhat personal connection to this group. It is a shame that they don't get much airplay since their songs sound as fresh to day as they did in the 1970s and 1980s.

This album is a great compilation of their best songs for the casual listener. For anyone who wishes to hear all the band's signature songs, this makes a great introduction to the Marshall Tucker Band and their iconic sound. This album is great for someone who wants to listen to the more familiar versions of their best hits. Therefore I give it a four star rating. Whether I am listening to the shorter single version of their best songs, they still sound great.

However if one is a true lover of the Marshall Tucker Band, a much better collection (missing "This Old Cowboy") is a two CD anthology that includes the longer album versions of their greatest songs as well as some album gems spanning their entire career. However that anthology requires more than two hours to listen, making it difficult to do in one sitting or a short trip in your car player.

If you like to listen to music in your car and like the Marshall Tucker Band; this album is great for short trips around the city or a short drive. But if you are on a long road trip and have the time in your car, then the two CD anthology is better. I have them both and love both of them.
