The First 30 Years
Emerging out of the Deep South in 1969, Black Oak Arkansas blazed a trail
as a Dixie-fried cosmic boogie band, eventually performing for more than
eight million fans. This DVD gathers 13 digitally remastered live and
unreleased performances, including their hit anthem “Jim Dandy.”
“…brash, raunchy, energetic and rocking…These guys are
most definitely doing something right.” -- Lester Bangs for Rolling
Stone Powered by three-guitar monster riffs and the tar-and-honey holler
of singer Jim “Dandy” Mangrum, Black Oak Arkansas were a top
touring group of the ’70s, leaving a 100-proof trail of raunch ’n’
roll that other bands are still following. These priceless performances
span 1971 to 2000. Watch as they appear live at London’s Royal Albert
Hall, the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Little Rock’s Barton Coliseum,
and at home in their idyllic private compound in Oakland, Arkansas.
