There are a few things about The Ozark Mountain Daredevils besides their music that fascinate me. One of which is the region from which they derive their name. Covering almost 50,000 square miles - the Ozarks are a type of highland - covering most of the southern half of Missouri, and a good portion of northwestern and north central Arkansas. This region extends westward into Oklahoma. There is even a sub-area called the Illinois Ozarks, which is a mostly wooded, hilly chunk of southwest Illinois. Oddly, an area called the Missouri Breaks is in Montana. The other is – their album covers. Search this blog for some others. But this is their debut album. We see a patchwork-quilt cover that appears to indicate that it most likely contains a broad range of musical types and styles from this region. Perhaps not too rock; not too country. It does have the #25 hit single "If You Wanna Get To Heaven,” plus some other laid-back original songs. Here is something I would have never guessed: the listed producer is the great Glyn Johns (and David Anderle), and Recording Engineer is also credited to Glyn Johns.
