Atlanta Rhythm Section - Sleep With One Eye Open (1982)



I thought this was a true find. It's the follow-up to Quinella, but it was never released. These are great sounding studio recordings! So how cool is this?
Anyway, besides its curiosity, this is a really nice album too. If you were hoping to something similar to Quinella, you're in luck. Quinella is one of my favorite ARS albums (I felt it sounded a lot more livelier than their other studio outings), and this makes for a nice pair. And boy, do I like a nice pair!

Thanks! Any chance you could put up the Quinella album? I'd never heard of that one.

Thanks for your consideration!

This record, Sleep With One Eye Open, is an amazing ARS record. Sounds like a blend of Underdog and Quinella, and is as good as either of them. I am so amazed that a record this good can sit somewhere unreleased. They could release this record today and sell a copy to any ARS fan. If you like this band, I'll just tell you straight up that you will love this record. Very original and rocks bigtime. Usual classy, sophisticated Southern Rock that burns the house down and pushes buttons other southern rock bands can quite reach.

Skydogg, since you do only out of print records, can you find a copy of "Are You Ready", the incredible live Atlanta Rhythm Section LP?

Been looking for a digital version of 40 Days and 40 Nights? Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
