Ready As Hell
Sometimes described as a Jim Dandy solo album, Ready As Hell shows both Dandy and Black Oak Arkansas at their creative peak. Rock records with true rhythm are few and far between, this one has it in spades. This was by no means their first record, and the evolution of the Jim Dandy sound seems here to have reached its logical purple patch. A mix of rock, metal and classical, this album is a triumph of style and substance.
