40 Year Itch : The Way You Say Y'All

Amazing Rhythm Aces: Hit the Nail on the Head

   The US Top 20"Third Rate Romance" was the Amazing Rhythm Aces's big hit and provided a blueprint for every Jimmy Buffet hit to follow, but the debut album Stacked Deck, recorded in Memphis,  offers something for everyone who loves the kind of great music that can be found at the intersection of country and soul. A critical favorite, the album is one of those overlooked gems of the 70's that give purpose to this blog.


  1. Much underrated band with some great singles and albums. "3rd Rate Romance" was followed up by the wonderfully titled "Amazing Grace (Used to Be Her Favorite Song)" - a song worth buying without evening listening to it! And the gorgeous country soul of "Burning the Ballroom Down" - one of the best ever songs about meeting up with an old flame. Thanks for posting these live tracks.

  2. I've never heard of this lot, but am very impressed with the two tracks posted., Thanks very much. Hopefully Spo***y have something by them
