Description:

Near-fine condition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. 212 pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Illustrated with photos. Pages show tanning. Library Journal The Oak Ridge Boys are one of the most successful groups in country music today. Their roots are in gospel music, however, and the authors interviewed most of the singers who have performed with the group since its inception in the mid-1940s to compile this history. Indeed, there were 35 other Oak Ridge quartet members prior to the famous foursome who have made up the group since 1973. Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, Richard Sterban, and Joe Bonsall are the ones who took the group to its greatest fame in gospel music and then made the controversial transition to country and popular music with such hits as ``Y'all Come Back Saloon'' and ``Elvira.'' Separate chapters profiling these four stars will appeal to the ORB's many fans.Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs. Bookseller Inventory #
