Marshall Tucker Band Background
50 years ago, the original bandmates, as well as some later members, of the Marshall Tucker Band had been taking stages around
the Spartanburg area as part of a litany of different group names. In the mid-60s, members of these bands combined their resources
and talents to form the Toy Factory, deriving their name from Toy Caldwell (guitarist). The Toy Factory's consistently revolving
lineup included, at times, Caldwell, along with Jerry Eubanks, Doug Gray, George McCorkle, Franklin Wilkie and Caldwell's
younger brother, Tommy. The band wasted no time, picking up where they left off. The resumed gigging around Spartanburg, after
a few of the band members served in the U.S. Armed Forces in Vietnam. And, in 1970, they opened for the Allman Brothers at
their concert hosted at the "Sitar" music lounge in Spartanburg. Two years later, Toy Caldwell and McCorkle shifted the lineup
around again, eventually settling on McCorkle (rhythm guitar); Tommy Caldwell (bass); Paul Riddle (drums); and Eubanks (flute/tenor
sax). The new band took the name, Marshall Tucker Band. The band was booked for a gig at Grant's Lounge in Macon. Paul Hornsby
and Buddy Thornton got a chance to listen to the band at Grant's and cut the band's demo. Their eponymous first album dropped
in 1973. It earned gold certification in 1975. Toy Caldwell penned all of the tracks, including "Can't You See" (1973). After
the album's debut, the Marshall Tucker Band took to an exhaustive tour schedule, playing close to 300 shows annually over
the course of the decade. Even famous fiddler Charlie Daniels said that the Marshall Tucker Band "came onstage and just blew
it out from start to finish." Daniels lent his talents to the band's sophomore album, A New Life (1974). The album claimed
gold certification in 1977. The double-album, Where We All Belong, also included Daniels as well as Elvin Bishop (blues guitarist).
Searchin' for a Rainbow followed and included the track, "Fire on the Mountain," which charted at No. 38 on Billboard. The
Marshall Tucker Band's Long Hard Ride album claimed its fifth gold certification in a row. And, its instrumental single, "Fire
on the Mountain," earned a Grammy nod. In 1977, Carolina Dreams arrived and earned platinum certification, cementing its status
as the most commercially successful album they had released. The catchy track, "Heard It In a Love Song," rocketed to No.
14 on the Billboard charts. Carolina Dreams was followed by Together Forever released in 1978. The Marshall Tucker Band also
came out with a Greatest Hits album and an album called, Running Like the Wind. In 1980, following the release of their album,
Tenth, the band faced tragedy when Tommy Caldwell (bassist/co-founder) died from massive head injuries sustained in a car
wreck. The band was never the same after that and wasn't able to reclaim its commercial success established in the 70s. The
Marshall Tucker Band continued to cut albums throughout the 80s and 90s, and continues to tour and record today.
