Atlanta Rhythm Section – Spooky

Flawless !!- Widely viewed as one of the best live rock videos of all time…from 1979
The story of the Atlanta Rhythm Section began at Studio One in Doraville, Georgia, a small town northeast of Atlanta, in 1970.
In August 1978 ARS hosted a big festival at Grant Field in Atlanta, The Champagne Jam. It was also around this time that ARS played one of their more prestigious venues, the White House. They had become acquainted with Jimmy Carter in his days as Governor of Georgia and as President he invited them to come play for his son’s birthday on the South Lawn in Washington. “My friends,” Carter described ARS as he introduced them, “Not only are we both from the same part of the country, but I remember when they first started that all the critics and commentators said they didn’t have a chance – they said the same thing about me.” This performance was noted in Time Magazine among other places. The studio session men from Doraville had come a long way.
