DIE UNGEWÖHNLICHEN SOUTHERN ROCKER AUS BLACK OAK IN ARKANSAS
- Jul 16, 2021
They named themselves after their hometown and their state - Black Oak Arkansas. And without question they belong to the best representatives of their genre. Of course, Black Oak also resorted to Country Rock, Blues and Hard Rock, but they also had a lot of Soul and always proved to have a knack for cover versions. The extraordinary voice of singer Jim "Dandy" Mangrum, who mostly growled or buzzed his way through the songs, was absolutely striking. Despite their enormous output - in the seventies they released two to three records per year between 1972 and 1976 - the quality level was always enormously high.
