Black Oak Arkansas Return With First New Album In 30 Years

Black Oak Arkansas this week will be releasing their new album, "Underdog Heroes", their first record of all new material in over 30 years.

We were sent the following details: Founding members Jim "Dandy" Mangrum (vocals) and Rickie Lee Reynolds (guitar) have been keeping the spirit of BOA alive and their songwriting partnership makes this album an essential release in the band's much heralded catalog!

"Underdog Heroes" includes a very special recording of virtuoso guitarist Shawn Lane, regarded by many as one of the fastest guitar players to ever live, and a member of the BOA clan since 1978 until his passing in 2003.

Tracklist:
1. Don't Let It Show
2. Underdog Heroes
3. Channeling Spirits
4. Ruby's Heartbreaker
5. The Wrong Side Of Midnight
6. The Devil's Daughter feat. Sammy B. Seauphine
7. Arkansas Medicine Man
8. Do Unto Others feat. Shawn Lane
9. You Told Me You Loved Me
10. Love 4 Rent
11. The 12 Bar Blues
12. Johnnie Won't Be Good

Re: Black Oak Arkansas Return With First New Album In 30 Years

"Go Jim Dandy", "Go Jim Dandy". Black Oak Arkansas was actually a pretty good group. Their music was also above average for the time. They sadly straddled being taken seriously and being considered a novelty. That said, Shawn Lane not only being considered one of the fastest guitarist by in by many is considered to be one of the best (if not the best) rock guitarist ever. I consider myself one in that group. Yeah, yeah Jimi Hendrix (who Lane idolized) gets that nod but imo Lane's technical handling of the guitar is second to none (in the rock genre). By the way if anybody listens to the clip I posted keep in mind that Shawn Lane is one of the most famous and successful people who suffered from Psoriatic Arthritis.
