Here in the south, Marshall Tucker was never underrated. Doug Gray is an amazing vocalist. I saw the original lineup 5 or 6 times, including a massive outdoor show at the old Atlanta Fulton County stadium that featured the Allman Bros, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, Wet Willie, and Elvin Bishop. It was in 1974 and called Georgia Jam. Greg
Karl A timeless song no matter who sings it. Greg Was probably Champagne Jam I was thinking of . Think I used to have that one in my collection but time and too many spins on the record lathe probably did it in . George.
sort of a mixed down version, as part of another song. this one works well, IMO?
Sublime had their *ghetto* side but there was a level of genius there too...
George, Champagne Jam was the Atlanta Rythym Section, another great southern rock band from back-in-the-day. i saw the original MTB a couple times too, i thought they were always great, but kinda wore out on 'em after a bit...
Greg, the Georgia Jam must have been a real kick! what a line up. didn't they do a couple of those? or am i mis-remembering?

Tom, I only recall one Georgia Jam, but my memory of those days is hazy at best. I do remember that Lynyrd Skynyrd blew everybody off the stage that day. Those boys could play, and they always said that they wouldn't put anything on record that they couldn't play live. The Allmans were the headliner, and after a long delay, finally took the stage after dark. They didn't finish the first song before stopping, and leaving the stage for "technical problems." It was later revealed that Gregg Allman had partied all day backstage and was in no condition to perform. My girlfriend and I left, and later learned that ticket stubbs would be honored at the upcoming Allman show at the Fox theatre in Atlanta. I didn't go, but a friend did, and said that Gregg Allman took the mike and apologized to the people of Atlanta, and announced "Tonight, we're gonna play every g@ddamn song we know!" I think you and George might be thinking of the Volunteer Jams that Charlie Daniels used to put on in Nashville. He always had a very diverse group of musicians, and I think some recordings were made. Greg
