Offered for sale is a German promotional issue of Back Up Against the Wall, the second album by the Atlanta Rhythm Section.
The Atlanta Rhythm Section, later nicknamed ARS, was created from the remnants of two bands that had enjoyed a bit of success in the 1960s – the Candymen and the Classics IV.
It took them a while to find their sound, but by the late 1970s, they’d released several albums that went gold, including Champagne Jam and A Rock and Roll Alternative.
While the band’s first album, the self-titled Atlanta Rhythm Section, scraped the lower part of the Billboard charts, peaking at #210, the second album, 1973’s Back Up Against the Wall, failed to chart altogether.
That’s a shame, as Back Up Against the Wall was the first album to feature singer Ronnie Hammond.

A beautiful copy of an album that’s surprisingly hard to find.
