What I always liked about the Marshall Tucker Band is that it set itself apart from other southern rockers with it's own unmistakable sound (flute and sax), and unique style that blended country and rock with jazz. Here the band performs their classics "Heard it in a Love Song", "Fire on the Mountain", "Can't You See", and "Searchin' for a Rainbow". You'll see from this concert that Southern rock fans reach pretty far north. And what made this concert particularly poignant was that it was at a pivotal time for the band. It took place only a year after the death of original member Tommy Caldwell.
The video and sound quality is surprising good for being shelved nearly 25 years. The direction and editing are also good compared to other concert videos I've seen even today. Here, you get to see faces clearly, close-up instrumental work, the audience, backstage, etc. The disk includes a film on the band's history, featuring comments by Charlie Daniels . . . worth the DVD alone.
It was fortunate MTV was around to capture MTB at a time when most concerts were not recorded. Now the video age brings it back again. If The Marshall Tucker Band recalls good times, you'd be glad to include this concert into your music DVD collection. For me, viewing this DVD was like replaying one of my best concert memories.
And as for the selection of songs, I couldn't be happier. I love the "Dedicated" Album. There is not one song on here I would have removed. While I have had the live version of "Ramblin" engrained in my brain, yea, I would have liked to see the bass solo here. Still no complaints.
Video wise... Hey, it's 1981. Were probably lucky they caught it on film. So it does have a somewhat dated look. Some of editing has a little to be desired. Some camera movement too, but these are real nitpicky arguements (Nothing like the horrid first Lynyrd Skynrd concert mess). The concert is focus's on the band, as it should and not a lot of audience images.
If your a Tucker fan, you most likely will enjoy the hell out of this concert. Pick it up, sit back and enjoy the
Get this DVD...throw it in the player...and maybe you'll understand why Southern Rock still lives today. You won't be sorry !!
please buy this!!It will not dissappoint.
Band's first big tour without bassist Tommy Caldwell, who had died in a car accident the year before. Despite his absence, Franklin Wilkie does an exceptional job filling his space, and the rest of the band is in top form. There are so many good songs that I can't pick out highlights. This DVD is essential for any rock & roll fan.

I'm really disappointed, this dvd is so boring I threw it away. It just didn't hit the right note with me (pun intended). Song renditions sounded different than on the cd's. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Mike Pollard
