--------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----
21 Thursday
music
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----
There really is a Black Oak, Ark., about an hour northwest of Memphis, as this Arkie can confirm. Black Oak Arkansas also still lives in the music world, and has since 1971 when the group birthed Southern rock ("Jim Dandy to the Rescue" and other hits), inspiring such legends as Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers and Molly Hatchet. Black Oak will be here for an 8 p.m. show today at The Thirsty Parrot (32 S. Tejon St.), still led by original singer Jim Dandy Mangrum and guitarist Rickie Lee Reynolds. Tickets are $14 in advance, $19 day-of-show, or $50 for dinner, best seats and beverage, available at the Parrot, by calling 884-1094 or 576-5945, or at amusiccompanyinc.com. RR

Geesh. I admit, I listened to these guys back in the day and saw them many times. The "Raunch and Roll" album is a piece of work. Birthed of southern rock?? Nope, but fun nonetheless. To this day, my younger sister mentions my brother and I's playing of "Raunch and Roll" as the album that most made her cringe as a kid and even now. If I remember right, that album also contained a legal land deed for one square inch of land on an acre the band bought in Arkansas somewhere. I lost that deed a long time ago. There is a picture around somewhere of Jim dandy passed out in his dressing room, half laying on the floor, with his wig off to the side and his false teeth hanging out of his mouth. Could be album cover material.

LMAO - Oh please!!! These folks at the Thirsty Parrot and/or amusiccompanyinc.com need to be taught a thing or 2.

These guys are friends of mine...I live 15 min's from The town Black Oak,Ar. ....started seeing them locally when i was Jr. High about 4 yr's before they "made it" & changed their name to Black oak...btw,2 orig. members (Jim & Rickey Lee) are definately still playing/touring...Johnny Bolin (Tommy's brother) is their drummer.....no clue what bands they inspired,but i can tell you where David lee Roth got his act.

I gotta find those old pictures.

Hugh hit it on the head.

Jim Dandy wore spandex so tight you could tell his religion.

"Many police reports have started with "I was partying with Black Oak Arkansas......." ". It's been awhile since I read the article where the quote came from but I somehow remember it talking about mass quanties of alcohol (moonshine), home grown marijuana in the Ozarks, and underaged, but well-developed girls. In other words, typical rock and rock behavior, and yeah, back in the day I saw Black Oak on many occasions (most of which I don't remember).

Hmmm, I think at one of their shows I was introduced to "Electric Moonshine" ('shrooms soaked in shine).

Who was the female who sang on that album? Starr something or another?
Their first album wasn't too bad.What was it? Halls Of Karma?
Way too long ago to remember!

i like the band but no clue who made up that horrible promo ad.

its funny the singer had his style/look ripped off by david lee roth and his voice ripped off by jackyl singer jesse james dupree yet black oak arkansas goes mostly unnoticed while both people who ripped him off were way more successful

Wasn't their first album the one with "Older than grandpa" on it ? The best album i heard from them is "X-rated" - there's some sweet guitar on there. Didn't much care for "High On The Hog." though. Wasn't one of their guitarists some 15 year old prodigy or something?

Mt Dad was on a tour with them in '74 , and the Black Oak roadies saved him and his band from a riot in Berlin, by physically carrying them out of it. T'was cool of them .

Shawn Lane is the guitarist you''re speaking of..he joined the band later on (yes,he was 15)...was only w/them around 2 yr's....

We had Jim Dandy several times when I worked at Rockers.

Without a doubt the friendliest musician who ever played there.

The Electric Moonshine sounds like it was a lot of fun back then.

Tommy Aldridge was the drummer who then went on to play for Pat Travers, Ozzy, and Whitesnake.

Not to hijack the thread, but ... for those of you who like progressive instramental guitar music and don't know who Shawn Lane is then ... do yourself a big favor and pick up one of Shawn Lane's solo outings ... or one of Shawn's colaborations with Jonas Helborg. I'm partial to "Time Is The Enemy" or the side of the CD they did with Michael Shrieve. Shawn could easily be one of the moat brilliant/talented musicians ... ever. Now back to the regularly scheduled Jim Dandy discussion. "Ol' Uncle 'Lijah ...

Got to be some of the most to the point, unadulterated lyrics of all-time (see the aforementioned "Raunch and Roll"):

"If you want to
If you will
Jump on my rod
It'll give you a thrill"
