Voodoo In The Vibes

On the final week of January 1977, Atlanta Rhythm Section--founded by J.R Cobb and Barry Bailey of Classics IV fame ( "Spooky")-- finally scored a hit single six albums into their career as  "So Into You" entered the Hot 100 at #89. The smooth and smokey tune would peak at #7 at the end of April. Writer C. Eric Banister thinks enough of this tune to rank it #68 in his book Counting Down Southern Rock: The 100 Best Songs : "Carried by the rhythmic guitar interplay of  Cobb and  Bailey, the song carries a seductive swagger, like a rock-and-roll Love Unlimited Orchestra."
