Liner Notes

Duane Allen - baritone vocals; Joe Bonsall - tenor vocals; William Lee Golden - baritone vocals; Richard Sterban - bass vocals; Skip Mitchell - lead guitar; Steve Sanders - rhythm guitar, vocals; Fred Satterfield - drums; Don Greeland - bass; Pete Cummings - sax; Ron Fairchild - keyboards

The Oak Ridge Boys give, again, another solid performance in this charity show called Stars For Children. The group, which built a huge following from its gospel roots through a solid country music career, offers up both classics and newer material in one of several shows it taped for the Silver Eagle Cross Country radio series

The band did a bevy of hits and newer material, but sometimes they just barely touched on old hits, such as "Cryin' Again," and "Sail Away," which is only 92 seconds long at this show. "You're The One," "Come On In," "Dig A Little Deeper In The Well," "Dream On," "Dancing The Night Away," "Fancy Free," "Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight," and "Y'all Come Back Saloon" are all offered up here with the group's two biggest hits, "Elvira" and "Bobbie Sue," as the closers.

The Oak Ridge Boys actually date back to 1942 in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they began as a gospel group led by Wally Fowler called the Oak Ridge Quartet. Fowler kept the group going amid several personnel changes as one of the most popular country-gospel acts in the South through 1956, when he retired. In 1956, he sold the name to then-group member Smitty Gatlin, who changed the moniker to the Oak Ridge Boys in 1961. When Gatlin became a minister in 1964, he handed over the reigns to the other members, which at that point included William Lee Golden and Duane Allen. Golden and Allen gradually rebuilt the group into its current line up, which has been together since the early 1970s.
