iTunes Review

Though Black Oak Arkansas isn't as well-known as Lynyrd Skynyrd or The Allman Brothers, during the '70s it was a successful Southern rock band that centered on charismatic frontman Jim “Dandy” Mangrum, whose outrageous onstage demeanor predated Van Halen’s David Lee Roth, among many others. Back Thar n’ Over Yonder features five brand-new 2013 recordings to accompany the discovery of 10 previously unreleased cuts produced by the legendary Tom Dowd at Miami’s Criteria Studios. The 2013 sessions include a serious rocker (“Plugged in and Wired”), a touching ballad (“Sweet Delta Water”), and a very BOA take on Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” that isn’t any less strange than its 1972 take on The Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” The deluxe version adds four more tracks, including an unreleased demo of “Keep the Faith” from 1971, the sharp instrumental “G Wiz," and eight minutes of hilarious studio chatter and silly jamming called “Arby’s.”

A Long Time Coming!

This new B.O.A. is NOT dissapointing! I can't wait to listen to it again. There are studio versions of songs that were only released live, great new music and other new or previously unreleased versions of more familair songs. No B.O.A. fan will want to go without the Delux Version. Even the studio outtakes of their conversations are interesting and funny. If you are new to B.O.A., I would probably recomend one of the first five albums to start with, especially the first, but everyone should find something to like in this. B.O,.A. needs to put out a new CD of new music from the reformed band ASAP.


Great album and music! Vocals and instruments (as always) are amazing and rocking. Wish yall could do a major tour as I missed you back in the day. Love your version of "I Shall Be Reased". Every song rocks on this album. Wife is out of the house so I have it turned up LOUD, th only way to listen to it. Hope to catch you in Pensacola if I can get down there.


The Black Attack Is Back! I can't wait to hear the new songs and the old songs from their heyday of the 70's!

Years Active: '70s

Southern rock veterans Black Oak Arkansas never quite achieved the level of success enjoyed by contemporaries like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers, but have remained a cult band thanks to their raw, primitive energy and the testosterone-fueled antics of lead vocalist/showman James "Big Jim Dandy" Mangrum. Named for Mangrum's hometown, Black Oak Arkansas eventually built up a solid following through incessant touring and enjoyed a run of ten charting albums between 1971 and 1976. The band also...
