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.

Marshall Tucker Box Coming Soon

leave a comment »

Southern rockers The Marshall Tucker Band will commemorate their near-40-year legacy with a new box set next week.

The Capricorn Years is a 10-disc affair that collates the first seven MTB LPs (from the self-titled 1973 album to 1978’s Together Forever), all of which were originally released on Capricorn Records (and many of them reissued on Shout! Factory with a live bonus track or two in recent years). It also includes another Shout! Factory-originated product: the two-CD/one-DVD Carolina Dreams Tour ’77, released in 2007. Each disc is remastered and features expanded liner notes. The box also comes with a special band 2011 calendar.

It can be ordered through the band’s own label Ramblin’ Records here; orders will start shipping on December 10. Hit the jump to reacquaint yourself with the track listings. (Credit to Vintage Vinyl News for reporting this story.)
