They may have shortlived their career, but surely have provided several exciting songs. Arguably, Black Oak’s best and most consistent album they’ve ever released. It has no dulling moment and no filler. 

There are two Black Oak Arkansas live, and the other one is available in two live sets — adding from seven to twenty-four tracks. 

Disc: 1

It’s hard to decide whether to choose the seven-track album or the other one because of the original release had missing tracks from the concert. But if you love to hear the differences, and surely you will, you would choose the two live sets. 

What Do You Think About Raunch ‘N’ Roll Live?

Well, it’s a worthy listen and if you love Southern Rock, then this one is indeed for you. 

Black Oak Arkansas wasn’t remembered for what they were, and if they did, they were indeed remembered negatively or not at all. But Raunch ‘N’ Roll Live provided them an advantage against the critics, showcasing their dirty and sexy music with a sense of excitement. Yeah, of course, no one needs a live album, but except some exceptions like this.
