Black Oak Arkansas - X Rated (1975)
The seventh studio album from this US band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and vocals on this album.
The band's biggest days were coming to the end on this album and the band entered a life of obscurity and various lineups.
James Mangrum were the vocalist and pretty much dominates this album. Tommy Albridge were behind the drums and does a good job.
The music is raunchy southern rock. The cheesy art-work pretty much says everything about this music.
Oh yeah, there is a lot of cheese on this album. It is also rock'n'roll. Even the ballads are cheesy. Ballads who comes inbetween the all out raunchy southern rock assault.
The songs are decent enough and this album is not bad at all. But the album has it's limitations.
