Marshall Tucker Band Background
Since the early 1960s, the original bandmates,
as well as some later members, of the Marshall Tucker Band had been performing around the Spartanburg area as part of a string
of different group names. In 1966, members of these bands mingled to establish the Toy Factory, borrowing 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 picked up where they left
off, playing clubs around Spartanburg, after a few of the bandmembers 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.
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 at Macon's Capricorn Studios.
The Marshall Tucker Band released their eponymous first album
in 1973. It earned gold certification in 1975. Toy Caldwell penned all of the singles, including Can't You See (1973). After
the album's debut, the Marshall Tucker Band took to an aggressive tour schedule, playing close to 300 shows annually over
the span 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 contributed 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 infectious track, Heard It In a Love Song, climbed 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.
Marshall Tucker Band continued to cut albums throughout the '80s and '90s, and continues to tour and record today.
