While not as in-depth and exhaustive as 1995's Best of the Marshall Tucker Band, The Marshall Tucker Band: The Encore Collection compiles some of the finest moments in the band's three-decade-long career. From their chart smash "Heard It in a Love Song" to the down-home Southern jamming of "Fly Like an Eagle," there's something on here for fans of nearly ever aspect of Southern rock. While there are notably a few hits missing ("Blue Ridge Mountain Sky" and "Can't You See"), the amazing omission of the classic workout "24 Hours at a Time" seems downright odd. This is a suitable entry point to those curious in hearing the magic that is the Marshall Tucker Band, but die-hard fans will probably have the majority of this material already.
