Lamar James says:

Damn fine!


I’ve always wanted one of those old Chevy trucks. Ain’t nothin’ like ’em.
Drive the damn thing from coast to coast for sure. Put in a good sound
system n rock n roll from coast to coast, north to south, and on every damn
road and path I can find. Better than an ARMY tank to my way of thinkin’.
Just try n stop me! Pay me ‘nough money n I’ll pull up the whole Sequoia
National Forest for ya! Ain’t nothin’ like ’em.

debra haas says:

tomitstube says:

repoman2665 says:

them fery crosses are burning nice, boy……..

MrEconline says:

I feel like I am 13 again LOL I remember seeing them the first time opening
up for Humble Pie at the Academy of Music in NYC.

julian tepes says:

No disrespect to the L.S. fans out there but Lynyrd Skynyrd couldn’t touch
them in during their prime. No southern band could. BOA are and is way
ahead of their time. Just glad the Wildman Dandy is still with us today. If
we lost Jim Dandy in the late 70’s. The guy would have been worship like

Dave Miller says:

Love this Group!

Robert Taylor says:

True southern rock’s origin born right here. Idgaf what any of Skynyrds
fans say. 

Mark Robbins says:

James Mangrum…my brother from another mother ! and all those who where ,
are & with him today… May God Bless All…! I know I have been, many
thanks to all…45 plus years…Love Ya ! Ya’ll…

Mark Klaers says:

God! I miss this music!

J. Smith says:

Every time I hear this song, I can see the 3rd Arkansas and Uncle Elijah
advancing into the Wheatfield at Gettysburg.

Double D says:

that’s one of the best songs that they ever recorded!

D Dykes says:

Damn good stuff there!

K Redel says:

I have this album!

roadawg music says:

one of my favorite bands from way back when, I used to listen to these guys
and elvin bishop all the time. I will not compare these guys with the likes
of skynyrd or allman bros. but these guys were my favorite.

Marie Grussendorf says:

I love boa i turned my 10 year old grandson on to them now heoves them

Brian Cox says:

I wonder if the one square inch of BOA deed is for real given in an album
many years ago?
