Never saw them live, but always appreciated their music. From "Doraville" to the guitar solo in "Spooky" love 'em.

I saw them a few times. Always liked them. Definitely have not kept up over the years. They certainly brought me some joy.

Quite possibly THE most overlooked and under-rated band of all time. In terms of talent and prowess on individual instruments, they were far superior to most of the bands that fell under the "southern rock" heading. Barry Bailey was and is a guitar monster! Someone else cited his solo in "Spooky". His solo in "Angel" is David Gilmore-esque.

I loved them in my high school, 8 track tape days. Sadly they never toured in the great white north to the best of my knowledge...

Couldn't agree more on ARS. Lucky enough to see them in Asheville around 1988 at 45 Cherry and 1991 at Rodeway. Each club had 200-300 folks at best and that's bragging on them. What a great show up close. I miss them.

Oh yeah, I have most of their records. I remember (sort of) meeting and having some drinks with Paul Goddard in Atlanta way back when, at the Electric Ballroom, I think.

I saw the first version of ARS when they had Rodney Justo as lead vocalist. It was at a restaurant in Doraville on Buford Hwy just outside I285. Many years later I had an office in the same building.

I saw them a lot back in the day and enjoyed what Ronnie Hammond brought to the band. When Third Annual Pipe Dream was released it sold out very fast and then never was reprinted. It was a legendary album and the only way to get it was to tape a friend's copy.

Rodney Justo went on to form "Beaverteeth" but they only lasted a couple of albums and had way too many strings added to their overproduced songs.

Was at Georgia Tech when ARS played at the Electric Ballroom and later at Grant Field a couple of years in a row.

Dennis Yost (of the Classic's Four) lived a couple of neighborhoods over from me and we would often see (future ARS) band members around his house.

Lot's of fun in those days seeing all of our local southern bands make it big...

Not a big fan but they were ok. However, I really liked the tune Large Time for some reason. One of my fraternity brothers loved then and listened to Champaign Jam all the time. So we had a party theme of Champaign Jam and it was almost a flop until I put on some dance music and the place caught fire. I reminded all my brothers of one thing; girls want to dance and drink. They do not want to listen to music and drink, they want to dance. Dancing and drinking will lead to poor judgement by some girls.
The ending to the story. I was elected Social Chairman and 35 years later my old brothers still talk about a couple of parties I set up.

Nobody left?? Rodney Justo is the singer, Dean Daughtry is the keyboard player and Steve Stone has been with them a long time at this point. I don't see any posts here by anybody who has seen the band in the last five years, but they are still touring from Indiana to Florida and they play all the hits! here's the website: http://www.atlantarhythmsection.com/
(although I would say it's time to put up a new picture with whoever the new bass player is).

In one of the strangest musical pairings, I saw them open for Kraftwerk (mid 70's).
ARS was incredible! Kraftwerk were ... interesting, but gave me a splitting headache with their techno-sprockets-electronica.

Rusty -

I'll echo your words. I see it that way too.

I saw the original band several times & other incarnations over the years. Loved that band. Great vocals from RH and Barry Bailey - a top notch guitar player - wonderful style.

Great thread, Arlene!
I'm also a huge fan of ARS. Saw them many times in Florida...Orlando Sports Stadium, Palm Beach, New Smyrna Speedway (with Hank Jr). One of the coolest was 78 or 79 when ARS played the classic Bandshell in Daytona Beach for Spring Break. Nix had a broken arm, and stood by the kit and played cymbals while a roadie played his drum kit. Barry Bailey is right atop my list with Dickey, Duane and Toy. Every time I saw them live, Barry played his 69 goldtop deluxe, going through a funky old tape loop echo and the same antique Marshall head. After Hammond's gun incident, they played with Justo at Pub 44 in New Smyrna. I got to speak with Bailey, and look at his Les Paul. I have a 69 goldtop also, and the last digit of his serial number was only slightly lower than mine. Maybe born on the same day.
Another real treat with that band was JR Cobs' rhythm playing. The timing change in "Angel" is as bad-ass as the timing change in "Don't Want You No More".
I'll try to dig out a couple of old pics to post.
I need a copy of "Are You Ready?".... My vinyl has worn out!

A.R.S were on the bill at my first ever festival. Knebworth 78. I'd never heard of them but have been a fan ever since. Only time I got to see them as I'm pretty sure they never returned to the U.K.

I saw them 4 - 5 times between 2008 -2010 & was always impressed.
I can understand them going with Paul Goddard but ditching longtime vocalist Andy Anderson for Rodney Justo was a mistake. Andy is a better vocalist & frontman plus I think he doubled as tour manger & you could tell he enjoyed his job(s).

The Champagne Jam Live DVD from a few years back is well worth searching out:

Here's the last time I saw Ronnie, he sat in for a few tunes at the stillwater reunion show (not the almost famous band, the real thing) in macon--not the greatest video, but you get the idea--one of those nights later on I was real glad I had been there, I have a lot of those nights:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en7yR8lKCDk

by the way, there used to be some youtube of Barry Bailey doing a terrific solo on "so into you" but I can't find it now, seems like there used to be a lot of stuff on youtube that isn't there now, what's up with that?

nope, the video I'm thinking of was outdoors and barry's solo went on for a while. I'll keep looking for it. steve stone does a pretty good job these days though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXq-t6o38MQ

not totally positive I was at the champagne jam but I remember seeing heart and cheap trick at grant field, maybe they were opening for ARS or that could have been another event. JNB says he was there.

I was at a bunch of these shows, but I missed a bunch of them too, hard to remember most of them, but some stand out:
