5.0 out of 5 stars One of their finest: classic 70s country-rock February 18, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The series of recently remastered reissues (say that 3 times fast!) of The Marshall Tucker Band's classic albums by Shout Factory is a great service to music fans everywhere. They were one of the great early jam bands and don't often enough get their proper due. On the release of their fourth album, 1975's "Searchin' For A Rainbow," the band had mastered their blend of country, bluegrass, blues and jazz improvisation within a rock context and found a way to make it more commercial. The Top 40 single "Fire On The Mountain" was the sign of a bright future for the band's commercial endeavors. Luckily for us this doesn't mean they sacrificed their sound to get there. Also, "Searchin' For A Rainbow" was the album that brought the band's association with Western themes to the forefront. "Walkin And Talkin" is classic western swing. There's a bonus track on here too: a live version of "It Takes Time," the leadoff track to their 1980 "Tenth" album. All in all this is a worthy addition to any 70s country-rock library and a fine improvement over the out-of-print original CD version of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Destined For Greatness! June 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Prior to the release of this album, the Marshall Tucker Band primarily played long, drawn-out jams. Let's face it they patterned themselves after the Allman Brothers. It was the 70's and people had a longer attention span back then. Lacking the commericial success that producers, studios, and record companies wanted, they too had to enter into the pop/country genre. Although, I like most of the songs on this one. Especially Virgina (which isn't one of their more notable songs). The title track and Fire On The Mountain are also good selections. Walkin' and Talkin' (A Texas swing-styled song)and Bob Away My Blues, Is a good honky-tonk selection. I don't care for Keeps Me From All Wrong. Bound and Determined sounds a lot like the Allman Brothers...I like this one. Can't You See (live) and It Takes Time (live) are very good songs. This CD shows that the MTB were destined for greatness! Although, I still like a lot of their older music better than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars my searchin' is over- I found the gold August 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Searchin' for a Rainbow is where the Marshall Tucker Band decided that going country is the direction they wanted to travel, and well, who am I to complain? It was a respectable (and obvious) choice. It's not like they were destined to be entirely a rock band anyway. They always had country and blues influences- even underneath the heavy guitar and sax jams there was a sense of country/rock.

The first song titled "Fire on the Mountain" contains a superb verse melody, memorable chorus, and great guitar playing. It's a perfect song, and honestly strikes me as more authentic than most artists who've attempted the same style of country/rock but never able to pull it off with the same kind of satisfying results. No, those artists can't capture the beauty and songwriting of this song. The title song is more of the same, with equally satisfying results. What a beautiful style of country/rock the Marshall Tucker Band excelled at. I can't believe this song has been removed from radio station formats. What a cryin' shame.

"Walkin' and Talkin" is pure boogie blues, and I love it (especially the guitar solo). "Virginia" is a commercialized ballad probably influenced by the Allman Brothers Bands "Melissa". I hear a similarity in the vocal melody. Nice lyrics about travelling in search of gold or... a search for adventure. "Bob Away the Blues" is a new experiment for the band- the best way to describe the vocals are "lazy blues", and that's meant entirely as a compliment. Great song.

"Keeps Me From All Wrong" is my vote for surprise highlight- catchy piano lines and vocals, bouncy rhythm work, meaningful lyrics and... perhaps it qualifies as a ballad, which makes it even more interesting and difficult to categorize.

5.0 out of 5 stars COUNTRY ROCK AT IT'S FINEST! July 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
My musical tastes run to the eclectic- classical, Beatles/British Invasion, Johnny Cash (especially the Sun Records years), '60's and '70's classic rock, country and many other genres as well. I am not a huge fan of this band, in fact the only songs by them I've heard are on this album. I first listened to this album in a friend's dorm room at college. The whole record just works for me. I take it as a unit, and I really like listening to it. It's worked for me since 1975, and I'll probably keep listening to it 'til they put me under.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best...but kind of short. January 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1975, this is Marshall Tucker's fourth album. It continues the line of fantastic albums by this group until they took a slight downturn on the fifth album, Carolina Dreams (many poeple love that album, but I think it is the group's weakest).

Originally, this was very short album at about 33 minutes long, and one of the songs was a live version of a previously released song. So, you only get about 27 minutes of new material, but it all great. My favorite is Bound and Determined. The live version of Can't You See on this album was previously planned to be released on the previous album, Where We All Belong, but for some reason it was dropped and included here. This new release also includes a bonus track of It Takes Time. It is OK, but does not make it worth buying this album if you already have it.

The original CD release of this album and the whole Marshall Tucker catalog had poor sound quality. SHOUT! Factory has reissued the whole catalog and has included one bonus live track on each. The remasters have been pretty good, but not perfect. Sometimes the mix is a little off, but the sound quality is very crisp with a good dynamic range. If you have the original CD, it might be worth buying this for the much improved sound. But, if you have the album, than it is not necessary. Note that the sound quality on the bonuse track is not as good.

I saw Marshall Tucker as the headliner when they did a tour for this album. They only played 20 minutes! It was a real shock. They did come out for a 20 minute encore, but this was the only time I saw a headliner only play 40 minutes. When I saw the group in the following years, they always played around 2 hours.
