The Ozark Mountain Daredevils is the debut album by the Country rock & Southern rock band The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Sporting a patchwork quilt cover that gave some indication of its eclectic musical content, and spawned the #25 hit single "If You Wanna Get to Heaven", plus many other laid-back originals from the Missouri natives.
