In 1973-74, I lived in the neighborhood right behind Studio One where they recorded, and being the curious kid I was, I walked in and met them. They were all very kind to me, and showed me the whole place, and let me listen to their rehearsal.
I especially like their unique blend of jazz chords with a rock tempo.
As I write this, I'm listening to their "Best Of ARS" CD. Yes indeed, Doraville WAS ONCE "a touch of country in the city", and I'm DAMN PROUD to have lived there. I still work in Doraville/Chamblee, and I guess I'll always love it in my heart, despite its virtual demise.
I hope Ronnie Hammond is doing better. Any true ARS fan knows what I mean.

It is a crying shame that a lot of stuff I have on vinyl LPs can't be had on CD. I've been looking for this album for a long time. It was worth the [price] just to get the title track which is a rousing song and one of my all time favorites. The live version from "Are You Ready" is absolutely wonderful! However, there are a lot of good ARS songs on this album besides the title track.
I see they've released Red Tape and some others. OK, where is "The Third Annual Pipe Dream," "Dog Days," "A Rock and Roll Alternative," "Are You Ready," etc.? Us ARS fans need those on CDs since no one ain't got a clue what a turntable is anymore! The God's honest truth: the newest stereo receiver I bought DOES NOT have a hookup for my turntable! Yeah I still have one and it works!
Buy this album if you like ARS...you won't be disappointed! It is a classic!
