Editorial Reviews

Like its predecessor (released eight months prior), the band's second LP hit the Top 40 and gave the band concert staples like 24 Hours at a Time and Blue Ridge Mountain Sky -and they were doing plenty of concerts at the time, touring with the Allman Brothers! Live bonus track: Another Cruel Love , recorded in Milwaukee in '74.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commercial success does not always equal the best January 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
OK. I realize people will disagree with me on this, and that's fine. I have worked as a DJ for 35 years now, listened to a lot of music, and hopefully formed a lot of opinions.

In my opion, "A New Life" is far and away the best release ever from The Marshall Tucker Band. so this isn't the stuff you're used to hearing on the radio. That doesn't mean it is not their best stuff. This may just be the perfect Southern rock album. Put this thing on, and believe me you are IN the Blue Ridge Mountains, just soakin' it up.

An incredible release. A must for Tucker fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! December 24, 2004
By bk913
Format:Audio CD
One of the most underrated bands ever. These guys were tight and you can tell they loved making music. If you enjoy the feeling that the Allmans "Blue Sky" eminates, than you will love this cd. This is Southern down-home music at its finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Life May 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I believe that this album, along with "Eat A Peach" by the Allman Brother Band, is the essential "Southern Rock Album". Tuckers sophomore album captures the spirit of the early 70s southern rock movement better than any other album. From the jazzy Southern Woman to the incredible Another Cruel Love, Toy Caldwell's songwriting was never better. You Ain't Foolin' Me might be the purest "anthem" song that Marshall Tucker was so famous for in concert. The best album by maybe the most underrated live band ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars a new life is a great life June 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The album cover perfectly sums up what to expect. A horse walking down a path on a high mountaintop and looking down at a few small homes in the fields, with a beautiful and colorful image of distant mountains in the background. It's not only a fantastic cover to analyze, but there may actually be a few ways to interpret it, too.

Such as... maybe the horse riding high in the mountains is an indication of the bands quick rise to stardom? Or maybe I'm thinking about it too hard and the album cover simply illustrates the beauty and colorful creativity that can be heard in the music.

A New Life is a minor masterpiece and REALLY shows just how much further the Marshall Tucker Band were willing to push the boundaries as far as how far the southern rock formula can go. This album is a drastic step forward from their self-titled debut in terms of songwriting and instrumental variety.

"You Ain't Foolin' Me" has a very good verse melody and chorus, but that's not *quite* what makes this song stand out so drastically. It's shortly after the 2 minute mark when the song REALLY takes off and confirms (to me, at least) that the Marshall Tucker Band are the real deal. The saxophone solo is incredibly melodic and perhaps this is a total coincidence, but the first few lines of the sax solo totally remind me of a Roxy Music song from their debut released back in 1972. From here, well, images of the album cover noticeably come to mind as the saxophone takes a sudden departure and a dreamy guitar solo elevates the greatness of the song to even higher heights. This instrumental middle section resembles *no* other southern rock band. Not the Allman Brothers Band or Lynyrd Skynyrd. It's completely unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars MTB Does It Again!!! February 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
MTB is one of those country jazz influenced bands of the seventies. I had forgotten all about them for years and happen to hear one of their newer songs,(Although Doug Grey is the only original member.) titled the "Ride Of Your Life" from Beyond The Horizon CD. I went out and bought all of the older stuff right up to the 30 yr Anthology. Still good stuff. Takes me back to another time and place.

Loved it in the 70's on LP and it sounds good on the new equipment to! The combination of flute, fiddle and other equipment along with that voice gets my toes tapping. Good stuff.

Bought "A New Life" plus MTB's first album on CD. Can't stop listening to them. Remastering is fairly compressed but sounds great otherwise.

This is one of the best albums of the 70's, not just from The MTB. This is simply a choice recording, and you should probably get it if you get it. ;)

A glimpse of college, North Carolina in the late '70's. A refuge from disco.
