One thought on “Smack Down!! – Oak Ridge Boys – Round 1

  1. I don’t have to listen to tell you it is “Light” hands down. Light is one of (if not THE) best studio albums they did on HeartWarming. Although I like a few cuts here and there from earlier, the group really seemed to advance a lot in the late sixties or so.
