Black Oak Arkansas - X-Rated (1975 us, hard southern boogie rock, Vinyl issue)

In 1975 BOA signed a contract with MCA and release their tenth album “X-Rated”. We’re in the mid 70’s and Hard Rock sounds more than ever at the high peeks, Jim Dandy and his band doing that they can do best, Southern high energy Rock ‘n Roll, raunchy  dirty up tempo ballads.  

From the front  cover  to the back cover the sins of Jim Dandy and his gang are everywhere diffuse, soaked with plenty of bourbon . Overall the album stands  quite well with the band tight-knit and the voice of Jim fits exactly between the music and the lyrics parts. 

1. Bump 'n' Grind - 3:52
2. Fightin' Cock - 4:39
3. Highway Pirate - 4:06
4. Strong Enough To Be Gentle - 5:30
5. Flesh Needs Flesh - 4:20
6. Wild Men From The Mountains - 3:25
7. High Flyer - 3:00
8. Ace In The Hole - 3:35
9. Too Hot To Stop - 4:00
