The Ozark Mountain Daredevils 1975 hit “Jackie Blue” reached number 3 in the US chart but failed to chart in the UK. However I do recall it being played a lot on UK radio; which is how I came to know and love the song. The song was originally written about a friend of the band who used to go clubbing in search of women. He always carried a large wad of cash and a plentiful supply of cocaine. Their label loved the song and said they really did feel that the band had written a big hit. However the suits then said that the lyrics needed changing so that the song was about a Jackie who was female. So the lyrics were rewritten and the rest as they say is history. The song was covered by the Smashing Pumpkins in the early 90s. How many of my UK readers are fans of this classic song from the Ozark Mountain Daredevils?
