SOOOO glad you enjoyed it, flat foot. I posted it for the music, but I knew guys like you would thrill to Jim's big spandex bulge.

I dunno, guess I'm to old to be on this forum anymore....

Hell, when I was living in Memphis back in the early to mid 70's,
we saw Black Oak Arkansas on the bill, and you knew it wasn't going to be a dance recital, but a get down good azz time.

Old school regional act for sure, those guys worked hard,
and seemed to come through town 2x a year in every city I lived in, in the South.

Heck, I didn't even know they played Cal Jam '74, good for them guys.
Did they tape your set?

Hot & Nasty was a pretty good jam I thought.

Tommy Aldridge is one of the all time drummers
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_Aldridge

When BOA came to the Ham us Hippies filled up Boutwell to the brim. It was well some of the best times of my young life. Leaned how to sneak a lot of stuff in my pants in back in them days.
Also duck tape a fifth of Jack Daniels to the leg. Hidden well by them bell bottoms.

GREAT BAND IN ITS DAY!

I gotta admit, that video of Jim & Co. (are there any other original members?) doing All Along The Watchtower is sad, maybe the worst I've seen of an old rock star. Some just don't admit when it's time to become a plumber!

I've know & been friends w/all the original members of Black Oak since i was in Jr. High,yr's before they became "famous"....They are good guy's...& Jim & Rickie lee (Orig. member) do still play.Those videos of them are bad,i admit that....but they are still a good live band.Johnny Bolin (Tommy's brother) is their drummer & the have a killer guitarist in Hal McCormick from Memphis. Yes,Jim look's pretty rough these day's...not going to make excuses for him.But,i will say that he was in a near fatal car crash yr's ago that left him in pretty bad shape.
They still love playing,but IMO,they prob. would retire if they could...think of it this way...these guy's are retirement age & playing music is all they know & all they've ever done...they gotta eat & pay the bill's just like anyone else.Love 'em or hate 'emi,it's what they do....& good on 'em for still being able to do it....btw,they'll be playing at the Sturgis Bike Rally this year....

While they weren't the most talented southern rock band they did have some decent tunes, didn't take themselves too seriously & knew how to show a crowd a good time.
Jim Dandy is one of the nicest people you could meet, he "ain't on no star trip".

Incidentally, Flatfoot, David Lee Roth came after Black Oak Arkansas, so if anyone stole anyone else's schtick, it was Dave stealing from Jim Dandy.

Roth has stated in many interviews that Jim was a big influence on him.

One more thing about Black Oak Arkansas that a lot of people don't know but I remember, mostly because I'm an old fart: They were HUGE in the early/mid 70's and were making tons of money off of record sales/tours. They gave back to their community, built schools and contributed to charities in their hometown of Black Oak. While they were being good ole boys and remembering their roots, conservative politicians in the Midwest tried to get them banned because of the blatant sexual nature of some of their songs and their performances, including tunes like Hot Rod and Hot 'n' Nasty. BOA's response? "There's nothing wrong with sex". Right on, dudes.

I used to play Hot 'n' Nasty all the time in the 70's - LOL!

The club I managed in Houston had Jim Dandy about twice a year.

Since I was the bar manager all comp. drinks had to go from my station.

I spent lots of time talking to Jim before sets, between sets, after the show.

One of the most genuine and friendly "rock stars" I ever met.

I have some "spandex" pics I took in 1975 of him on stage.

I'll try to find them in the attic and post them for deano to get off on.

I guess if women "repel" you, crotch shots of Jim Dandy are all you have left.

Hey Rob.... Cal Jam was my very first concert experience. Ontario Motor Speedway was just a hop skip and a jump down I-10 from Berdoo where I grew up.

What bigger name acts did Black Oak open for say 73-75? I saw them and it bugs me who they opened for. I never ran out and bought an album after that show, but they were definitely a fun act to see that night. He had real floozy / hot / female singers doing back up and it was high energy for sure. No complaints here.

BOA opened for Grand Funk Railroad at Atlanta Fulton County stadium in Oct. 1971. Huge crowd, very loud. I was 16 at the time, and high energy describes BOA! Raunchiest act I ever saw. Went out and bought the Black Oak Arkansas albumn, the only one I ever owned.

The best thing about the Cal Jam show for me besides being really young and seeing LOTZ of girly's flashing boobiez was it was my first time seeing Tommy Aldridge playing drumz. He is an animal and a big influence on my playing style.

that was a great line up that day...very diverse... Laterz

Don't they have a live one, "Raunch & Roll" ?maybe, that is essential BOA -- never did get into these guys but always knew em & am digging the thread

Yes,& it's a great Live LP.....Rhino re-released it a few years ago as a 2 cd set...the x-tra disc is the show from the night before..."Live Mutha" is their other live LP...not as popular as Raunch n Roll,but it's pretty good as well,IMO...

"To me it just looks wild and raunchy to see a guy in tights with no shirt trying to show off a bulge in his pants. With images like that I wouldn't want to be caught dead at one of their shows. And to my eyes Jim Mangrum was a pretty gross looking sex symbol to begin with."

Ahhh, must be a young man....
Guess you'd have skipped over going to see Led Zeppelin and Grand Funk as well, both monster acts, w/ Plant and Farner, being the sex symbols.

Heck there was even old David Bowie, jumping around in a unitard, pigeon chest, and red spiked hairdo, trying to be Ziggy Stardust.

Its was just the times.

But the thing I don't get is, how it was ok for DLR to do it in 1978 to 84, but ol' Jim Dandy was a flamer back in 1974. Looks like his hillbilly azz is ahead of his time to me....

Anyhow, I'll give you this, Jim Dandy Mangrum sure is a testament to the generosity of women, thats for sure.....
