BOOK REVIEW: The Atlanta Rhythm Section by Willie G. Moseley

The Atlanta Rhythm Section

Willie G. Moseley takes readers on a trip into the young South of the early to mid 1970s.

A place where a group of veteran musicians formed a band and created a sound that generated several hits: “Spooky,” “So Into You,” “Imaginary Lover,” “Doraville.”

The Atlanta Rhythm Section.

Mosely writes the band’s “Authorized History.”

Moseley is senior writer for Vintage Guitar Magazine. “The Atlanta Rhythm Section” is his 13th book.

He interviews the principal players from then to now in the illustrious history of the band. As well as recollections from producers, techies and fans.

Readers will find more than 120 photos spread throughout the book from the band’s past which included a gig as back-up for rock legend Roy Orbison.

In “The Atlanta Rhythm Section: The Authorized History,” Moseley tells the band’s story in an engaging, easy-to-read style. He paints a portrait of the band while fleshing out the era when ARS rose to the top of the charts and digs into the band’s decline come the 1980s.

ARS is a good book for the band’s fans or for fans of band books.
