The Knowbody Else - 1969 - The Knowbody Else (pre Black Oak Arkansas)

Black Oak Arkansas is an American Southern rock band named after the band's hometown of Black Oak, Arkansas. The group, originally called "The Knowbody Else", was formed in 1965 in Black Oak, Arkansas, by Jim "Dandy" Mangrum (vocals), Rickie Reynolds (guitar), Stanley Knight (guitar), Harvey Jett (guitar), Pat Daugherty (bass), and Wayne Evans (drums). Their first PA system was stolen from a local high school. Members of the group were subsequently charged in absentia with grand larceny  and sentenced to 26 years at the Tucker Prison Farm (this sentence was later suspended). This led to their retreat to the hills of rural northeast Arkansas where they lived off the land and refined their musical style. They also lived in Long Beach, Mississippi and played at the local Lobe theater/dance hall. Some of their influences during this time were the Beatles and the Byrds  along with Art Mendez. Gary "GT" Taylor of West Memphis Arkansas soon took reigns on drums and played 1969-73 and soon resigned because of personal reasons and still declared "BOK" as head of their time.A five year contract was turned down because of no money mentioned."GT" said,"I wished I'd stayed another two years "!"These guys rocked and had carisma, to say the least." The Knowbody Else moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1969 and signed a record deal with Stax Records. Their self-titled debut album, and their only album with Stax, was largely ignored by the populace. During this time the band became interested in psychedelia and Eastern spiritualism which, combined with their Southern Baptist upbringing, contributed to their sound. After several trips to Los Angeles, California, in 1970, the band was signed by Atco Records and rechristened "Black Oak Arkansas".
