Songs You May Have Missed #658

The Marshall Tucker Band: “This Ol’ Cowboy” (1974)

Though Marshall Tucker Band were usually categorized as southern rock, at their best–and they’re at their best here–they weren’t easily pigeonholed.

Tasty Toy Caldwell guitar licks, jazzy chords and a breezy vibe complement a philosophical, carefree lyric on a song that deftly straddles genres. A radio edit of “This O’ Cowboy” charted at #78 in early 1975.

Where We All Belong was a double album, with one record of new material and another featuring smoking live performance cuts.
