Bedford Fair History Becky Wolfe’s memories of some of the entertainment at the Fair included: 1970 – Porter Wagner and Dolly Parton 1971 – The Blue Ridge Quartet 1972 – Sonny James 1973 – Oak Ridge Quartet 1974 – Black Oak Arkansas (This group was a hard core rock band and included problems that were often associated with that kind of music. Included in the problems was a girl found unconscious, under some newspapers on the race track. The Fair spent many hours dealing with the pubic over that show.) 1975 – Lynn Anderson 1976 – Mel Tillis 1977 – Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius 1978 & 1980 – Bill Anderson (A crowd favorite) 1979 – Mac Wiseman and Barbara Mandrell 1980 – The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band 1981 – Susan Raye and Kenny Price ...to be continued.

We are currently looking for a serious bass player who is able to travel, tour and record as well as meet other mutual 2014 goals.

Tomorrow I'll be interviewing Kevin from REO Speedwagon and also Jim Dandy from Black Oak Arkansas. REO will be playing in Wichita Falls Wednesday night! I'll be giving two pair of tickets to that away today and tomorrow and of course Black Oak Arkansa will be playing at Kents Harley Davidson 50th birthday bash on Saturday! I'll also be on location with both :)
Today's musical ℞: This song is the fourth track off of Black Oak Arkansas' sophomore release, 1972's "Keep the Faith." It was a concert staple and perfectly suited to be a set-opener due to its manic energy and the three-guitar harmony of Ricky Lee "Ricochet" Reynolds, Stanley "Goober" Knight, and Harvey "Burley" Jett. Love 'em or hate 'em, there's never been any other band quite like 'em. While they were definitely ahead of their time in so many ways, I think it could be said that this gang of hillbilly hippies was either born 100 years too late or 100 years too soon. They were known for their frontman Jim "Dandy" Mangrum and his trusty washboard along with their cover of the 1956 LaVern Baker hit "Jim Dandy." It hit on the pop chart in 1973. The flamboyant Mangrum's gravelly voice and wild on-stage antics garnered a lot of attention for the band as they toured incessantly as one of the leading live acts of the '70s. His lewd 'n' crude, in-your-face stage persona was very influential to many singers t ...
On a good note though Black Oak Arkansas asked me to intro them on stage on Saturday and then Kevin with REO Speedwagon asked me to come back stage and have a beer with them after the show :) I love my job :)

Ten interesting facts about Shawn Lane 1. He started playing guitar at 10 and was gigging by 12. 2. The popular rock band Black Oak Arkansas tried to get him to join them when he was only 13. He declined, but joined them at age 14. 3. He read between 3 and ten books A DAY on every topic under the sun. He would get interested in something, go to the library and take out every book available on that topic and read them all in a few days. He remembered everything he read. 4. He didn't practice playing guitar and wrote all his songs on the piano. 5. He wrote all the music, played every instrument, produced, arranged and engineered everything on his groundbreaking Powers of Ten album. 6. He started working on a computer with recording software - his first time recording or using a computer - at 10 PM one evening. By 6 AM he had not only learned how to use the software, but had finished the first cut for the album. 7. Almost all his tracks are "first takes". 8. When Billy Gibbons first heard Shawn, he was so me ...

VIC'S NAKED TRUTH: Early in drummer Tommy Aldridge's career, he actually lived in Chicago. Between 1972 and 1976, Tommy gained famed as the drummer of Southern Rock group Black Oak Arkansas, recording several albums with the band. Not happy with the band's heavy drug use, Aldridge attempted to leave. However the band's management wasn't keen on giving him his contractual freedom, so he was forced to sneak away in the middle of the night and subsequently "hide out in Chicago." Tommy's "great escape" culminated in a year and a half of lawsuits but not until he’d been tracked down in Chicago where he was putting a band together. The band was called d'Thumbs. They had some offers from Capitol Records but Tommy wasn't able to sign a record contract because of his employment agreement to Black Oak’s record company. Tommy played around Chicago with d'Thumbs and even co-headlined shows with Cheap Trick. “I was hiding out in Chicago and no one knew where I was. I’d even call my mother from phone boxes. I c ...

 These are the rules if you want to play: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose. To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note. Rob's picks... AC/DC - Powerage, UFO - Lights Out, Rolling Stones - High Times and Green Grass, Pink Floyd - Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Metalica - Ride the Lightning, Nirvana - Nevermind, Butthole Surfers - Independent Worm Saloon, Led Zeppilin - IV, Kiss - Alive, Ted Nugent - Cat Scratch Fever, King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King, Black Oak Arkansas - Raunch and Roll, Rush - 2112, Aerosmith - 1st Album, Van Halen - 1st Album. Wow remembering lots more now, guess I didn't leave those braincells on the Grateful Dead Tour after all, lol.

Today in Rock History, October 10, 1955 David Lee Roth is born in Bloomington, Indiana. While attending school in Pasadena, California he met up with Eddie and Alex Van Halen. In 1972 the Van Halen brothers were playing in a band called Mammoth. They asked David to join them as their lead singer and changed the band name to Van Halen in 1974. Roth's stage persona was heavily influenced by that of Black Oak Arkansas vocalist Jim "Dandy" Mangrum. On April 1, 1985, Roth and Van Halen parted ways for the first time. Here’s Van Halen in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1983

I have a confession to make (which I will prob get bashed by my hard rock friends for this one). But I was a drummer for YEARS in an all girl band, my childhood had a soundtrack of The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Black Oak Arkansas, Journey, Styx, Golden Earring, Jim Croce, Janis, Jimi, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, etc. Then at home, Mom loved Elvis, Porter Wagner, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, etc. My grandfather.Lawrence Welk & Hee Haw. I belong to Generation X. But, Marilyn Manson, Tool, Sublime, Disturbed, Shinedown are all staples of my musical diet now. My confession? Gordon Lightfoot has been the downloader of choice for about a week now. :) Let the bashing begin!! (P.S. I AM THE BIGGEST ELTON JOHN FAN ALIVE!! ♥)

The GEORGE JONES that I knew: Growing up in or living in Nashville you never knew/know who you would/will meet. Though I haven't lived there in years I still go there occasionally for various things .Play music,visit old friends,or Dr.Appointments etc: Over the years I have met and spoken with many legends in the music/show business (if only in passing ) Roy Acuff, Johnny Cash and his wife June, Alice Cooper, Black Oak Arkansas, Paul McCartney ,Leon Russell and Sylvester Stallone to name a few. You never know who you will meet in the Music City but the one that stands out in my mind was George Jones . Several years ago I had to have surgery on my vocal chords to remove some polyps. I went to the Otolarynology group across from Vanderbilt. They were recognized as being the best at this sort of thing and indeed from all the Head shots with thank yous hanging in the office you could tell that many major artists trusted them.

Well gang, I'm sittin' here watchin' a PBS show about my good Arkansas buddy. "Love For Levon!" *** I miss that rascal. The PBS show has all kinda folks who were friends of Levon Helm, but there was always a weird kinda bond between musicians who were actually FROM Arkansas... and I reckon that's because there just wasn't that many of us! Levon was always talkin about us gettin' together to record in Woodstock at his place and The Band and Black Oak Arkansas touring together in a circus tent! Jim wanted to do it on a riverboat! But... time flies... and we continually walk by those roads left untraveled. Levon left us last year... and Rick Danko, my friend and bass player for The Band left before that. Now... my bro Stan has left us, too. Gang, we can't do all we plan in life, but cherish those close to you while they're here.. and don't be afraid to say I love ya to your friends and family.

It has been made official !! The Emilio Emilio Group, with Trinidads own Johnny Wells on drums & vocals, will be one of the headliner bands for this years 'Tommy Bolin Festival' Aug. 1-3, in the hometown where it all started, Sioux City Iowa. A Denver Colorado event with the Tommy Bolin Tribute Band, Johnnie Bolin of Black Oak Arkansas, Emilio Emilio Group, and featured artists yet to be announced, may precede the Iowa Bolinfest.

Rehearsing jive using "Jim Dandy" by Black Oak Arkansas as the piece.
I'm downloading a 2-disc set of Black Oak Arkansas at the Paramount Theater in Seattle (and Portland's Paramount too), from 1973 right now. A friend of mine at work played it for me and I was blown away. He was actually there, very cool. Made me wonder why I didn't pay attention to this awesome album back in the day. Jim Dandy, the singer... David Lee Roth owes him a LOT for basically stealing his whole schtick!
Just bought our tickets for Scotty McCreery, Diamond Rio, Kristen Kelly and Charlie Pride show also bought tickets to go and see the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum and more for our trip to Nashville TN for our 20th Annv which will begin next friday after work for a week. I can not wait. I'm so excited. I think Ray is too. He is not a country type person (No Ozzy or Black Oak Arkansas sorry) but I think he will like it. Like he said what ever I want to do is fine for our 20th. I'm so excited just like when I got a new flagpole and flag from Stepanie and Matthew. I love it. ;) I Love it ;)
Had a great day with friends and also a friend who some may remember from the group Black Oak Arkansas. The lead singer, Jim Dandy. He made a wonderful group of pies and single serve little cakes. For a real man, he does know how to make everything so sweet. I am full now, and ready for a glass of Merlot. Thanks again to all the well wishers on this "thankful" day.

James Mangrum, better known as Jim "Dandy" Mangrum (born March 30, 1948), is the lead singer and frontman for the American Southern Rock band Black Oak Arkansas. He is noted for his raspy voice, long hair, and wild, sexually-explicit stage antics which sometimes included miming sex with a washboard...

Hi gang. I've been asked about the Knowbody Else stuff that's starting to show up on a compilation CD, and I've decided to spend a bit of time here for all of you who are my friends and family to explain. The first Stax album of Knowbody Else came out in the 60s, and took off like a heard of turtles! Before we were taken over by Ahmet Ernegun and our Atlantic Record family (and the name change to Black Oak Arkansas), we were almost finished with another Knowbody Else album. Jim Stewart of Stax let us go to Atlantic, but wanted the right to release that unfinished album in the future if we ever became a viable commodity! (Fancy talkin'... huh?) This later became "Early Times" by Black Oak Arkansas... released on Stax. All of this you probably already know. What you DON'T know is that before we recorded that first Stax album... we did an entire other Knowbody Else album that was never released! A friend of ours and a musician on his own of some Memphis and world-wide fame, Jim Dickenson, did an album here i ...

So most of my life is predicated by musical moments. Those times in your life where music seems to be a demarcation point. Alice Cooper at the Palace in 1971 I had never seen anything like that. 1972 Yes with King Crimson opening up set 1973 King Crimson at the Palace with Black Oak Arkansas as the opener ( who that that was a good idea) 1973 Mike Siperas and I are visiting a friend at Tufts University and Genesis is playing there that night. 1973 Mott the Hoople at the Palace with Queen as opening act 1974 Genesis doing the Lamb lies Down at the Palace. New Years Eve 1975 seeing Patti Smith, Television & John Cale with Barry Erikson in NYC Bob Marley in 1979 in Vt The Clash in 1982 in Vt ( they showed up in in a bar down the street later) and so many other shows. Music seems to be my lifeline.
On the turntable this morning: the great memories of "Jim Dandy" from Black Oak Arkansas -- --

August Jam was a huge outdoor concert held Saturday August 10, 1974 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway outside Charlotte, North Carolina in the United States. The concert promoter was Kaleidoscope Productions and was sponsored by radio stations WAYS and WROQ The concert featured the Allman Brothers Band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas, the Marshall Tucker Band, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Grinderswitch, PFM and others. The Eagles were booked to play but cancelled. It was the largest concert ever held in the state of North Carolina and one of the largest in the U.S. at that time, with an estimated attendance in excess of 200,000. I was there with my friends. Wow it was crazy. People knocked down the fence to get in free. Good times in 74.

So James how was Black Oak Arkansas? Was Jim Dandy swinging his walker around?
Whew, a full night of classic Southern Rock.Black Oak Arkansas was both very cool (I guess because Jim Mangrum was always one of my fave front guys) and somewhat disappointing (their guitarist was very well versed in huge power chords and the "crowd point" ... not in the finer intricacies of 70s southern boogie and blues-rock). Anyway, Ol' Jim Dandy at times was awe inspiring, at others, reminding me of an athsmatic cross between Hasil Adkins and Mr Rogers.oh well, at least I saw them. The new version of Blackfoot, hand picked by founding member Ricky Medlocke, was quite impressive.nailing versions of "Train Train"... "Highway Song" . and "Wishing Well" among others. guitarist Tim Rossi blew me away.remember that name. Finally, the latest conglomerate to be called "Molly Hatchet" (I believe only Dave Hlubek remains from the first album) was quite enjoyable, with the classic twin guitar leads amid epic length jams. And being a Danny Joe Brown fan, I still thought the vocals were handled very well.not an im ...

Liked the "stupidity"of their radio tunes back in the early 70's... by '77 I would not have been listening to them. The guitarists in this band were pretty *** good when it came to playing together without stepping all over each other. The 3 way e-bow guitar interlude in this number is excellent. Watch, and you'll also discover where "Diamond Dave" stole his act from! This is also one of the few vids of this band where the lead singer isn't showing off his pkg in ultra tight spandex... thank goodness! xD

RE: THE MADISON COUNTY MOVIE A word of warning: Don't trust the producer or the production staff of the movie Madison County. A few month ago, the producer of Madison County, Daniel Dunn, called me and asked about using Black Oak Arkansas music in his film. He said he talked to Jim Dandy and Jim told him I owned the rights to the music. Dan said they couldn't pay me any money up front, but I would get the royalties from ASCAP whne the movie played. He seemed like a nice guy and I was willing to work with him. I figured the PR would be good for BOA. He said he would send me some movie stuff - Copy of the movie, T-shirts, posters, etc. I said that would be good. He sent me a contract to sign. I made some changes and sent it back to him. In the credits, I changed the BOA credits to read with the copyright symbol, my name and my company (Far Fetched Music). The contract also said I owned the masters. I deleted that part, too. He called me after he received the contract and said the lawyers needed the mmaster ...

an excerpt from wikipedia about this woman and a few songs. "Ruby Starr (November 30, 1949 - January 14, 1995) was born Constance Henrietta Mierzwiak in Toledo, Ohio. Starr started performing at the age of nine under the stage name Connie Little and later joined Ruby Jones in 1969. In 1971 they were signed to Curtom Records and recorded their first album, Ruby Jones. Shortly after that album's release, Black Oak Arkansas lead vocalist Jim "Dandy" Mangrum saw Starr singing in an Evansville, Indiana, club and convinced her to join his band. At this point she assumed the stage name of Ruby Starr. Starr toured with the band for several years at the height of their success and was featured in their Top 30 single " Jim Dandy". In 1974 she began touring on her own again as Ruby Starr & Grey Ghost (members: Gary Levin, Marius Penczner, David Mayo and Joel Williams) and released a self-titled album in 1975 on Capitol Records. Her second album, Scene Stealer, also on Capitol Records was released in 1976. During thi ...
