The Marshall Tucker Band and The Oak Ridge Boys

The Brief:
This post veers way off the path that this blog has been on from its beginning. I suppose you could two-step to these songs but, the usual disco/dance vibe of this blog does not apply to this post. What we have here are three 7″ singles from The Marshall Tucker Band and The Oak Ridge Boys. The Marshall Tucker Band is represented with its 1973 hit “Take The Highway” from a promo 45 with two different edits. The Oak Ridge Boys are represented by two 45s from 1979 and 1980 of “Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight” and “Trying To Love Two Women”. Your mileage may vary…

    Hey, Thanks! I think it’s worth mentioning that “Hold On Til Sunday” is a b-side only track. A true rarity. if you have any more Oaks, bring it on!
