Shout! Factory to Release New Marshall Tucker Band Compilation

leave a comment »

Last year saw the release of a no-frills box from the Marshall Tucker Band, issued through the band’s own Ramblin’ Records. They were straight reproduction of the LPs along with a live CD/DVD set initially released by Shout! Factory, which had also remastered and expanded each of the MTB albums for Capricorn Records in the past. It looks like Shout! Factory is still putting out MTB releases, as a new greatest hits compilation is coming from the label on April 5.

It’s a pretty straightforward set – 14 tracks culled from the band’s first six Capricorn LPs (1973’s self-titled debut through 1977’s Carolina Dreams) – but what makes it worthwhile for hardcore fans of the group are the presence of five single edits that are relatively rare to CD. So if you’re into that, this might be something to pursue.

Full track details and ordering info is after the jump.
