CD Review: The Oak Ridge Boys Spend The "Night Out" With First Ever Live Album

One of the last surviving groups of classic country music is The Oak Ridge Boys. They have been around since the late 1940s, with their first album being released in 1958. They topped the charts in 1981 with the song "Elvira," but have never released a live album, until now. On April 15th, Cleopatra Records will release "Boys Night Out," which feature many of their best songs performed live on tour in 2013.

The fourteen song album begins with the country gospel sing along of "You're The One," then they head into one of their seventeen country chart toppers "American Made." The Boys rock out on "Love Song" as they sound as if they enjoy performing live together as a tight unit. They travel back to the seventies with a few of their classic hits "Y'all Come Back Saloon," "Sail Away" and "Dream On," before approaching their hey day with the eighties songs "Come On In" and "Make My Life With You." The album closes with two of The Oak Ridge Boys' biggest hits "Elvira" and "Bobby Sue." The crowd gets into it as The Boys sound timeless singing their greatest songs.

The Oak Ridge Boys show no signs of slowing down as they have live dates running through the rest of the year and into 2015. To find out more about their new live album "Boys Night Out," please visit cleorecs.com/store/shop/oak-ridge-boys-boys-night-out-cd/.
