Album: The Car Over the Lake Album (1975)
  • Ozark Mountain Daredevils drummer and keyboardist Larry Lee wrote this stirring ballad which features a harpsichord intro and a mandolin. The song tells the story of 19th Century American explorer John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 took a party of 10 men on a fabulous and dangerous journey of discovery down the majestic Colorado River. >>

  • Richard from Phoenix, AzOMD has had some major talent and a wonderful catalog of great songs....Too bad they're only known for Jackie Blue. Their first 4 albums are all full of great stories of Americana...and learning to enjoy the simple things in life! Would love to see them tour again with all the founding members!
