Jim dandy mangrum

James "Jim Dandy" Mangrum (born March 30, 1948) is the lead vocalist for Black Oak Arkansas. James Mangrum headed a small gang of misfits who became a band, "Knowbody Else", after being unable to find a job. However, they were run out of town for stealing instruments. They moved to New Orleans and recorded a Stax record that went nowhere. The band, consisting of vocalist Mangrum, guitarists Ricky "Ricochet" Reynolds, Stanley "Goober" Knight, and Harvey "Burley" Jett, bassist Pat Daugherty, and drummer Wayne Evans changed their name to "Black Oak Arkansas" (after James' hometown Black Oak, Arkansas) and released a string of albums with much more success. James got his nickname from the band's cover of the LaVern Baker song Jim Dandy and became known for his rambunctious, sexually-themed on-stage antics. However, he left the band in 1975 and was replaced by James Henderson. After recovering from a heart attack, he reunited with Reynolds in 1984 to release the solo album Ready as Hell. They released The Black Attack is Back two years later. Mangrum reunited with Black Oak Arkansas in 1999 for a tour and a new album: The Wild Bunch.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is a 1978 American jukebox musical film. Its soundtrack, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, features new versions of songs originally written and performed by The Beatles. The film draws primarily from two of their albums, 1967's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and 1969's Abbey Road. The film covers all of the songs from the Sgt. Pepper album with the exceptions of "Within You, Without You" and "Lovely Rita", and also includes nearly all of Abbey Road. The production is somewhat adapted from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on the Road, a 1974 off-Broadway production directed by Tom O'Horgan. It tells the loosely-constructed story of a band as they wrangle with the music industry and battle evil forces bent on stealing their instruments and corrupting their home town of Heartland. The film is presented in a form similar to that of a rock opera with the Beatles' songs providing "dialogue" to carry the story, with only George Burns having spoken lines that act to clarify the plot and provide further narration.
