The Marshall Tucker Band's 1973 classic "Can't You See" has been named the 'Greatest Southern Rock Song' in a new list by UltimateClassicRock.com. The track -- which has been a mainstay on FM radio upon it's release on the band's self-titled debut album -- has often been mistaken for being an Allman Brothers Band song, actually was never a hit, "peaking" upon release at a disappointing Number 108 on the Billboardsingles charts. Coming in second was Lynyrd Skynyrd's 1974 mission statement, "Sweet Home Alabama," with 1975 Outlaws favorite "Green Grass & High Tides" rounding out the Top Three.
Co-founder and singer Doug Gray is thrilled with the honor, telling the website: "We are over the top with this announcement from Ultimate Classic Rock. It certainly lets us all know that 'Can't You See' is and will continue to be appreciated for a very long time."
