Oak Ridge Boys

Even for those who have never acquired a taste for the Oaks' sometimes glib approach to country harmonizing, this is an easy-to-take, breezy album. Their 13th LP—they have all been produced by Ron Chancey—includes a couple of inviting tunes by John and Johanna Hall, Don't Break the Code (which has to do with wife-stealing) and What You Do to Me. All the Boys—Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban—get some solo minutes, and saxophonist Jim Horn and fiddler Mark O'Connor spice things up instrumentally. Already convinced Oak Ridge fans will be pleased; newcomers might find this a pleasant introduction to one of country music's most durable groups. (MCA)
