This was originally posted on Dime in June 2013. It had 160 downloads before it fell off the tracker.

For this repost, I needed to apply the SBE alignment, which wasn't done originally.

I corrected the set list and titled the tracks, updated the text file and created new fingerprints.

Toy was a founding member and lead guitar player of The Marshall Tucker Band from 1973 - 1984.

Toy had been ill with influenza and bronchitis and went to his doctor, days later he suffered a fatal heart attack and died in his sleep.

The coroner ruled that "he died as a result of cardio-respiratory arrest due to cocaine ingestion,�

Toy had passed away at his home in Moore, South Carolina on Feb 25, 1993, at age 45.

Toy was the oldest brother of three. His younger brothers were 24-year-old Timothy, who was killed on March 28, 1980, in a collision with a garbage truck in South Carolina.

The middle brother Tommy, who played bass in Marshall Tucker Band, passed away on April 28, 1980. from injuries he received in a jeep accident. He was 30 years old.

Toy having lost 2 brothers within a month, was a terrible tragedy. The band tried to go on without their bass player Tommy but couldn't cope with the void.

By 1984 Toy Caldwell and two other band members called it quits.

From 1985 to 1988, he stopped performing and spent time on favorite hobbies, reading, fishing and spending time with his family.

Variations of the Marshall Tucker Band have performed since then.

Caldwell was best known for his guitar playing with the band, which had seven gold and two platinum albums.

The band peaked in the mid-1970s with songs like �Heard It in a Love Song,� �Can�t You See� and �This Ol� Cowboy.�


Recorded directly in front of the stage.

Tape side C ended and didn't get flipped, so the last song fades out early.

The band plays "This Ol' Cowboy" Twice !!
