THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND UNEARTHS VINTAGE RECORDINGS FROM HISTORIC 1977 ENGLISHTOWN CONCERT
Nashville, Tenn. (August 25, 2014) - This fall, the legendary MARSHALL TUCKER BAND (MTB) will release live recordings from its historic 1977 Englishtown, New Jersey concert that reportedly drew more than 150,000 fans. LIVE FROM ENGLISHTOWN is set to hit the marketplace on September 30, 2014 via the band's Ramblin' Records and will be distributed nationally through RED Distribution.
MTB lead singer and founding member Doug Gray notes, "The 1977 Englishtown concert was one of the largest shows in the history of The Marshall Tucker Band. This album was made from a copy of the original 37-year-old recording and although the audio quality is not perfect, we wanted to make it commercially available to our fans. Our best efforts were used to make this live concert sound as good as we possibly could with the source we had on-hand. This concert is a historic event, attended by tens of thousands of fans. These recordings will give fans and those who attended a chance to relive that special day by hearing the original MTB lineup in its prime."
The 70-minute concert originally recorded on September 3, 1977 features the original band performing their biggest hits including, "Can't You See," "Heard It In A Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," "24 Hours At A Time," and "Searchin' For A Rainbow," among others.
Gray adds, "Looking back, this concert was just unbelievable. It was one of the most moving experiences in the history of The Marshall Tucker Band."
