“That’s ‘Jackie Blue,'” I said aloud, to no one in particular. But then I was stumped. Who SANG it?
I even own the song on a CD compilation of Southern rock. This was maddening.
Obviously, I COULD look at the CD, or Google the song. Stubbornly, I refused to do so.
Then frankly, it slipped my mind… until the following Tuesday morning, when I woke up, and thought, “Ozark Mountain Daredevils,” an “American Southern rock/country rock band formed in 1972 in Springfield, Missouri.”
“Jackie Blue is a single by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils from their 1974 album, It’ll Shine When It Shines. The song reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. and #10 in South Africa in 1975. The song was sung by the group’s drummer, Larry Lee.”
