Time Warp: The Very Best of Ozark Mountain Daredevils

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Hal Horowitz
Although it omits three songs from the far less comprehensive and deleted 1983 12-track Best Of, and doesn't include any live or post-A&M music, this 2000 release stands as the final word on the Ozark Mountain Daredevils' career. Cherry-picking 21 tunes from their five studio album stint circa 1974-1978 -- with the lion's share coming from their first three albums and only three selections from the final two -- this is pretty much all you'll need from the under-recognized band that worked in the '70s country-rock shadows of Poco and Firefall, but weren't as dependable or pop savvy as either. In fact, their biggest hit, the Hall & Oates, blue-eyed soul-styled ...

Although it omits three songs from the far less comprehensive and deleted 1983 12-track Best Of, and doesn't include any live or post-A&M music, this 2000 release stands as the final word on the Ozark Mountain Daredevils' career. Cherry-picking 21 tunes from their five studio album stint circa 1974-1978 -- with the lion's share coming from their first three albums and only three selections from the final two -- this is pretty much all you'll need from the under-recognized band that worked in the '70s country-rock shadows of Poco and Firefall, but weren't as dependable or pop savvy as either. In fact, their biggest hit, the Hall & Oates, blue-eyed soul-styled "Jackie Blue," was so atypical of the band's characteristically down-home approach that it ultimately may have been more damaging to their career than if they had clicked with a song more representative of their crisp, rural country pop
ock. As enjoyable and pleasantly organic as they were, the group lacked a distinctive vocalist, direction, and most importantly great songs. This collection focuses on their less commercially rocking, more rootsy side, and as such it's a consistently listenable, predominantly chronological compilation that is all any but the most die-hard fan will ever need. An extensive essay including quotes from bandmembers and rare photos in the disc's 16-page booklet sweeten the pot and make this as definitive an overview from a talented also-ran outfit as necessary. Like its closing title track, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils lived in a stylistic time warp, comfortable within its own limitations and unwilling -- but not unable -- to break free of them.

    Hands down, the best music ever made

    I first saw the Daredevils at age 14, when I won tickets. I was hooked when I heard "Chicken Train." I have every album, several times over, in case I damaged one! No music compares to these boys, not in writing, not in singing, not in soul. It's all good.

    Essential for Ozark fans!

    This compilation is the fulfillment of every died in the wool Ozarks' fans collection. All of the tracks are superb, as is the production. A must! Covers all their moods, eras, and situations. A band that truly stuck with their "roots". Every generation will enjoy this timeless music.
