Marshall Tucker Band, Grinderswitch, Bonnie Bramlett: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Chris Welch, Melody Maker, 4 December 1976

YIHAAHS RANG in the ears when the cowpokes came to town on Saturday night. Huge beefy men burst out of their jeans and hammered away at guitars and drums as if they were rounding up and branding longhorns. For it was the night when the Marshall Tucker Band, with their sidekicks Grinderswitch and Bonnie Bramlett rode into the Odeon Hammersmith with a whoop and a holler and a clank of the old spittoon.
