Atlanta Rhythm Section - Spooky 1979

The Atlanta Rhythm Section released Spooky on their 1979 album Underdog. Originally the song was an instrumental released y saxophonist Mike Shapiro. In 1968 two members of the Classic IV in Jacksonville, FL, guitarist James Cobb and producer Buddy Buie, wrote lyrics to the song. The Classics IV vocal version reached #3 on the American charts and #46 in the UK. Cobb and Buie went on to be original members of ARS. The ARS version reached #17 on the US charts and has been a staple of the standard catalog and covered by many bands since.

My favorite version of this song! The former members of Classics IV
perfected it in ARS

Saw ARS a few times back in the 80’s, sounded exactly like the album! No
dancing around BS just jammmmed their ass’ off!

curtstreuli says:

Interesting that one of the ARS wrote the words to this way back in the
day. Prior to that it was a sax instrumental

*On this day… 1946*
*Happy Birthday, Dean Daughtry – Keyboardist, Atlanta Rhythm Section*

I’ve always loved ARS… their cool jazzy, slick bluesy. smooth funky
kinda’ sound… and honestly believe that they’re one of the most
underrated groups to come out of the ’70s. This is just one of their hits
(LOVE!!!!) from that Super decade.

I searched for Spooky and this was the first thing that came up, good
stuff. 

carsos00 says:

what is there not to love about this version, it just sums up that late US
70s west coast sound, and I love every second of it.

Charles Broome says:

33 people don’t like this? No taste in music! Southern Rock Rules! Class
of 1978 lived on this stuff!

Gary Strader says:

There is a version of this Band still out there on the road, it is Not this
Band, but one or maybe two surviving members of it. I knew the band that
performed and recorded this song. Ronnie Hammond and Barry Bailey were not
only incredibly talented, but they were both two of the most decent humans
I ever met. I will never forget the night when ARS came into the club where
I was playing. At the end of our first set Barry Bailey walked up to me and
introduced himself by saying that he was in a band too. I responded by
saying “No Kidding- I knew who you were the minute you walked in the door,
as I was a big ARS Fan as well. I told him that I had worn out the album
“Third Annual Pipe Dream”, and had just purchased their then just released
album “Dog Days”, which was the album they were touring for. Great guys,
and musicians, I still miss them.

Paul Quinn says:

Barry Baillie’s tone is superb in the solos :)

Rashel Fuller says:

This is the song from American Horror Story season 1!

Robert Griffin says:

I have always loved this song, help me learn to play drums in the early
days. Thanks ARS!

FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS says:

*#RocktoberFNS**: ARS*
*Happy FridayHalloween!*
The original 1968 hit was recorded by a band called Classics IV. The lead
guitarist for that band was none other than J.R. Cobb, who later formed
Atlanta Rhythm Section with fellow Classics IV band membes Robert Nix and
Dean Daughtry… which is probably why the ARS “cover” from 1979 (below)
differeed very little from the original.
