Their debut album is an edgy effort, rooted in a purer Southern sound, and embracing a soulfulness that their West Coast rivals lacked. The country gospel tune "Life's Railway to Heaven," the funky "The 'Ella B'," the stomping "Hit the Nail on the Head," and the soulful "The Beautiful Lie" would never have been done in as raw, intense, or bracing a fashion by their rivals. Russell Smith brings a vocal performance to Charlie Rich's "Who Will the Next Fool Be" that sounds like he's channeling the ghost of Sam Cooke.

Band Name The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Album Name Stacked Deck. Other productions from The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Ride Again (Volume 1).

The two titles are, 'Stacked Deck' and 'Too Stuffed To Jump'. First time on CD. Standard jewelcase. Substitute grits for glitz, soul for sheen, and wry humor for mythic self-regard, and the Amazing Rhythm Aces could have been the Eagles. With their first 2 LPs, The Memphis based Amazing Rhythm Aces got it right from the git go. Laden with hits, the albums also boasted great album tracks featuring stellar songwriting from Russell Smith mixed with great playing from the band. For a brief period in the late 70s, Music just didn't get any better than the Amazing Rhythm Aces. This package is a must for your collection: easily as cool as Miles Davis or early Waylon, radio hits, & more integrity than you can measure.

8. Anything You Want (Remastered). 9. My Tears Still Flow (Remastered). The Essential the Amazing Rhythm Aces. Nothin' But the Blues. See All. Lovin' Her Was Easier.
