Every now and then I give these reserved Iowans something to think about! I have an Infinity stereo in my car which cranks pretty seriously - part of the reason I bought the car. For me it's about the stereo and the gas mileage.

Where We All Belong is definitely in my top 5 albums of all time. The live cuts of Ramblin, then 24 Hours at a Time (3 times in a row - it's my song), then Everyday (at least twice), then Take the Highway, and bonus track of a live See You Later, I'm Gone. I'm in heaven at this point. Then I can go back and play the studio cuts - once I've calmed down. The studio cuts are great, too!

Just listened to the MTB Demos in my car - WOW! What a band. Outrageously good - can't believe it's a Demo.

Also, remembering George today. RIP George - missing your talent.

Anybody know who is doing the lead singing on the demo songs Rainy Night in Georgia and Evil Ways? Just couldn't pin it down. Come on Capn - you always come through for me.

I just found this pic. I think it is from Philly in 1991.

Derek Trucks, Toy and Chris Trucks. (Derek's Dad)

I know you'll get it. Per your suggestion I ordered the Volunteer Jam DVD - hope there's only one and I got the right one (1979?). Checked the "cast" and the Caldwell brothers were listed, so no matter what it can't be bad. Should have it by early next week. I had looked at Wal-mart, couldn't find it, so ordered it from Barnes & Noble using my membership discount.

I love that pic! I was actually looking for a pic of Derek and Livingston Taylor I have somewhere and I came across that one.

Thanks, Pam - love this pic. Seen it before, but don't remember where. Also thanks for bumping this up. I was gonna have to hunt this thread down. Got the Volunteer Jam dvd that Capn told me I needed - boy was he right! Toy AND Tommy are absolutely cookin'! It was also great to see CDB, our man Dickey, and Jimmy Hall

Couldn't get this wonderful song out of my head today.

It's a lonesome road
And a hard way to live
But it's the only life that I know
I met some people, I traveled around
But home's always the best place to go

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling that I can't leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

I got me a woman back home
She gave me a baby, too
And she stands by my loving side and
Does anything I ask her to

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

There's an old man, sittin' in a rockin' chair
He's got the best beagle dog in the county I've been told
But his shotgun done got too rusty
That 'ole beagle dog he done grown a little too old
As he stares up into heaven, I'm sure I know the reason why
He's thinking about that promised land in them Blue Ridge Mountain skies

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

Just wanted to share that my 20 year old son, Billy, called tonight and wanted to know if I had anything by the Marshall Tucker Band. He was learning some guitar tabs and remembered that I have a song called Can't You See. So I asked if he was interested in hearing the studio recording or the live recording (my favorite). He decided he should check out all my MTB cd's. He has a guitar tab book on Southern Rock Guitar Heroes. Of course, Duane Allman is a main feature. "And Mom, what about Toy Caldwell?" So I said, son, get yourself home and check him out!

We have a convert!

That's cool Kitty, & actually I have a friend who's discovering Tucker & a lot of the greats in a big way right now -- it is the coolest isn't it to see how lit up people get when hearing really cool music -- he's all into the New Riders now as well as Dickey (went to the Cannon show), & he in turn has some cool CD by this new band, Old Crow Medicine Show, that's great
Yes, the timeless aspect of music -- another of its potent qualities & btw cool quote in the other thread by Derek too -- the 1999 tape I have (Saratoga & Great Woods) has some REAL nice moments -- Derek certainly knows what he's talking about, as he should since he too has been there & is every bit the player Dickey is -- have always felt that given another year or two they would have hit on something real sweet -- the shows from the previous summer w/Jack showed that vintage ABB magic was still there, almost definitely would've been the same w/Dickey & Derek -- but all good just the same

Hey Stephen - cool about your friend, too. I also told Billy when he's ready, there are the Outlaws, Charlie Daniels Band, Little Feat and many others to check out.

Derek and Dickey...love the thought of that. A couple of really great players.

Played AB's song for my son yesterday - his first time listening to it. It's so beautiful, we both had tears in our eyes. Way too short - really leaves you wanting more, but what more could he say?

Tearing up right here at my desk.

What a short and sweet song. That's the "Kind of Man" he was. Obviously his wife was his equal.

^ Bumping this up for Toy. Been thinking about what he brought to the world of music, and how great his contribution was.

I read a comment on the ABB site from Skyponydogboy who mentioned that Toy didn't get enough credit for being a great singer. So true. Thanks for reminding me.
