This single-disc Atlanta Rhythm Section compilation features live versions and re-recordings of their hits. While such well-known cuts as "So into You" and "Spooky" don't stray too far from the original arrangements, the cover versions of "Takin' Care of Business," "Sharp Dressed Man/Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Love Hurts," "Hold on Loosely," and "The Boys Are Back in Town" relegate their status to that of a mediocre bar band. Although the live versions of "Imaginary Lover" and "Champagne Jam" will appeal to hardcore fans, casual listeners should opt for the original studio versions available on Polydor's The Best of Atlanta Rhythm Section.
