This is where Southern Rock really got rolling.
DarrenJones
I just looked over the song titles to see if I could recommend a song or two as the best track and it was too hard to choose.
Wargum Kim
The latter is a great instrumental with intertwining solos that bleed emotion with every note picked.

The main thing about Black Oak Arkansas was either you love them or hate them, there was little room in-between. "High on the Hog" was their first album with a certified hit, "Jim Dandy", a sort of ego-anthem of the lead singer, Jim "dandy" Mangrum. But the remaining songs on the album all had something for the Black Oak fans to love. As a result, you'll find that almost every song on the album was named by a Black Oak fan as their favorite. My personal favorite is "High and Dry", a simple little diddy about escaping a flood. It was a simple accoustic guitar and Jim Dandy's "ornery" voice, but it will always be a classic for those "dyed in the wool" Black Oak Arkansas fans.

HIGH ON THE HOG was the biggest hit album for Black Oak Arkansas, obviously the nastiest, dirtiest, funkiest band to come out of the whole "Southern Rock" scene. The band lacked the musical skills of the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band, the Outlaws, Molly Hatchet, and Blackfoot, yet more than made up for it with a deep funk and a wicked sense of humor that hasn't dated at all. This CD belongs in any serious rock & roll collection.

This was one of the first rock & roll records I ever heard. My brother bought it when it first came out and he played it to death. His record had so many scratches, hisses & pops on it, that I decided I needed my own. This is a classic album. I wasn't looking for this "High On The Hog" disc, but when I accidently stumbled apon it in the cd shop recently - I had to buy it. What a throw-back this was - to the good old times when nothing mattered... no bills to pay, no job to worry about... just school and your friends. Now almost 30 years later, I listen to this disc and it still sounds great. Jim Dandy is a one in a million singer with a unique set of lungs. The other band member I remember was drummer Tommy Aldridge - who went on with other classic rock bands like Whitesnake, Ozzy and Pat Travers. BOA could rock with the best of them. I feel that they were a highly underrated band. They were at their best with their hard rockers, but every once in awhile they'd come up with a slow ballad that would just knock you back a few rows. Classic songs here: "Swimming In Quicksand", "Why Shouldn't I Smile", "Moonshine Sonata", and "Jim Dandy". Great album cover too... and who knows, Jim Dandy very well could have been the precurser to David Lee Roth. The attitude, hair, open chested shirts and stylings were all there with him & BOA.

I have seen BOA perform about 15 times and they never let you feel you were the only one there to have a good time.A classic blend of good ol' southern boogie and excellent guitar skills to take one to the next level of entertainment.When you have the music, the words, the "Dandy One", you will have a rockin' good time-guaranteed!!

Well, I gotta tell ya...I've got every Black Oak Arkansas album ever put out but I would definitely say that High On The Hog is the Crown Jewel. It has the most flavorable tunes to croon to and sums up the spirit of what this band was all about. Dirty's driving bass lines opens several of the songs here and only wets your appetite for the diverse intertwining solos of their triple guitar attack. Plenty of wah wah petal, slide and even some finger lickin acoustic that makes you wanna run out and buy a cabin and a 100 acres of land to live the life that these lyrics convey. Damn, what can I say, listening to High On The Hog just makes you feel good and alive! Who but BOA could come up with song titles like Swimmin In Quicksand and Moonshine Sonata. The latter is a great instrumental with intertwining solos that bleed emotion with every note picked. Back To The Land and High 'N' Dry have a down home country feel to it....you can just picture these guys playing this on the front porch of their Ozark cabins. If you want to hear what crooning is all about, then the Dandy will pour it on you during High 'N' Dry. Happy Hooker is a real cooker and has a strong slow bluesy rhytmn to it and the lyrics are just a hoot. This is foot stompin music at it's finest. Movin and Red Hot Lovin are very fast, upbeat and powerful songs. The order of the songs on this album are perfect...I think this is why this release just simply knocks my socks off. It's also produced by Tom Dowd, you know. Folks, there simply is not a bad tune on this one! To me, it is the definitive Black Oak Arkansas album and truly one of the great classic rock albums of the early 70s. You'll love the album cover and you'll want to run out and buy you a washboard and croon along with the Dandy. After that, just run to the highest peak in the Ozarks you can find and yell...Go Jim Dandy, Go! After 30 years of listening to this, all I can say is "Why Shouldn't I Smile, So Many Happy Miles".

High on a Hog is a good solid rock N roll southren Boogie Album. I perfer Keep The Faith and Raunch N Roll Live over this one (BOA was always best Live), but Having said that there are some good highlights on this one; Swimming In Quicksand, Happy Hooker and Jim Dandy are all BOA classics and Moonshine Sonata absolulty rocks, it is a great instermental. So High on the Hog is a must buy for any BOA fan.
