Ozark Mountain Daredevils

This second album from the highly versatile sextet comes off pretty well. The Ozarks play effete British-styled pop ("Jackie Blue"), solid rock ("Kansas You Fooler"), with some folky balladry thrown in and (despite their name) a relative paucity of bluegrass or country. Their chief asset is their excellent harmony vocals. Some of the lead singing, however, is uninspired. Side two gets a bit sluggish with too many undistinguished melodies on the slow numbers (they're much better uptempo), but the overall ratio of good songs is high. It'll Shine When It Shines stacks up as a crisp, impressive, playable album.

- Ken Barnes, Rolling Stone, 1/30/75.
