436. Atlanta Rhythm Section
Often called the radio friendly version of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Atlanta Rhythm Section was an underappreciated Southern Rock band who tasted success in the last half of the 70’s. Although they often drew comparisons to Skynyrd and the Allmans, the accomplished Georgia based musicians had a subtle Blue Eyed Soul sound that gave them a lot of appeal. It was however these subtleties that may have made this band easy to forget as they were never in your face and always in the shadow. Still, if you are looking for understated Southern Rock, this is a great place to look.
