= Band Members From cross anchor,sc area[edit]

Untitled[edit]

Some of the band members are from cross anchor, south carolina there is also a Marshall Tucker Road right off old hills bridge road which also connects to shaw road also in cross anchor, sc I know for a fact one house on Shaw Road was one of the "marshall tucker" houses off shaw rd , which has now been sold to another family for some time.

Toy Caldwell[edit]

Toy was a driving force in the original line up and wrote a lot of the stuff.... Toy passed on some years ago, I'll look it up and be back...Paulmeisel 02:38, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Gold/Platinum discrepancy[edit]

The official MTB site shows the albums Marshall Tucker Band and Searchin’ For A Rainbow, as well as Carolina Dreams having a platinum status (instead of gold as this article shows). It also shows Running Like The Wind having a gold status. I don't know who's right. -- Nonenmac (talk) 02:15, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

I looked it up on RIAA site, which showed:

THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND  08/14/1975  CAPRICORN    GOLD
WHERE WE ALL BELONG       11/07/1975  CAPRICORN    GOLD
SEARCHIN' FOR A RAINBOW   02/04/1976  CAPRICORN    GOLD
CAROLINA DREAMS           06/02/1977  REPRISE      GOLD
A NEW LIFE                08/16/1977  WARNER BROS. GOLD
TOGETHER FOREVER          05/02/1978  CAPRICORN    GOLD
CAROLINA DREAMS           05/23/1978  REPRISE      PLATINUM
GREATEST HITS             10/30/1978  CAPRICORN    GOLD
GREATEST HITS             12/09/1996  CAPRICORN    PLATINUM

It agrees with this article. Maybe the MTB site added up re-release sales to come up with their statuses. -- Nonenmac (talk) 02:37, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
