Marshall Tucker Band celebrates 40th with ‘Greatest Hits’ release

Forty years ago the Marshall Tucker Band came out of Spartanburg, South Carolina, at the dawn of the ’70s. Their ability to blend rock, country, jazz and blues won them a fervent following and changed perceptions of what American pop music could be.  On April 5, 2011, marking its 40th Anniversary, the Marshall Tucker Band releases “The Marshall Tucker Band: Greatest Hits” (Shout Factory).  The 14-track album features original recordings of the songs that made the MTB a household name.

In addition to releasing Greatest Hits on April 5, vocalist Doug Gray unveils his lost R&B solo album, “Soul Of The South” (Shout Factory), on the same date.  The unreleased 30-year-old recordings, featuring the MTB, showcases Gray’s vocal affinity for Soul and Blues.
