“Carolina Dreams” by The Marshall Tucker Band. Released in January 1977. Produced by Paul Hornsby. Capricorn. 8 tracks, including “Life in a Song”, “Tell It To The Devil”, and my personal favorite “Heard It in a Love Song” Runtime - 37:18.
Interesting and Charming Southern Rock. Horn Sections, flutes, amazing guitar solos, funky bass lines, and so much more. I honestly was pretty blown away by this album since it was my first listen, and I really enjoyed every song. I kept visualizing a long road trip, feeling wind with my hands, and getting a nice arm sunburn resting in the window... but that’s a good thing! I think it’s a great taste of relaxed Southern Rock, but not quite as formulated or articulate as the Eagles. No where near as raw as Ted Nugent or Lynyrd Skynyrd. I really enjoyed this record, and I think you will too! Try it out when you get the opportunity, especially driving a long road trip to your next summer destination.
