Offered for sale is a German promotional issue of Back Up Against the Wall, the second album by the Atlanta Rhythm Section.

About this copy:  This copy of Back Up Against the Wall is an original German pressing on the MCA label.  While this copy has stock labels, it has a sticker reading “Trade Sample” in both English and German on side one.

The cover is M- and has a couple of slightly dented corners.

The record is M- and looks unplayed.

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

Background: 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.
