The ten songs that make up ARS' self-titled debut album were recorded at Studio One in Doraville, GA in Nov. 1971. Producer/songwriter Buddy Buie wrote nine of the songs in partnership with others in the band. While the sound of the album may have become a little dated over time, what still comes through today are two traits that ARS was starting to refine and would prove to be their strong points over the years-great songwriting and excellent musicianship. From the opening Love Me Just a Little (Sometime) to the instrumental Earnestine, the acoustic version of Another Man's Woman and the rock of Yours and Mine, ARS began laying a solid musical foundation for future albums.

Song by Song
1. Love Me Just A Little (Sometime) (Nix/Daughtry/Buie)-6:05
        ARS' first album starts out in a rocking '70s groove with a song that features some fine guitar soloing.
2. Baby No Lie (Nix/Daughtry/Buie/Bailey)-3:51
        This slower paced song features a plaintive vocal over backing keyboards and guitar.
3. All In Your Mind (Buie/Cobb)-3:16
        The tempo picks up a little with this subdued tune that features a nice instrumental break.
4. Earnestine (Nix/Daughtry/Bailey/Goddard)-2:33
        This is the first of several instrumentals that ARS would record over the years and is a great showcase for their fluid guitar work, tight rhythm section and musical skills.
5. Forty Days And Forty Nights (Bramblett/Causey/Jones)-4:21
        The pace slows again with this cover that features some nice keyboard fills.
6. Another Man's Woman (It's So Hard) (Nix/Daughtry/Buie)-4:46
        An acoustic version of a song that reappeared in a classic electric version on the Red Tape album and became a staple of live shows. It's hard driving and fast paced here, but only hints at the energy level and instrumental solos future versions would showcase.
7. Days Of Our Lives (Buie/Bailey/Cobb)-3:12
        A moderately paced meditation on the passing of time.
8. Yours And Mine (Nix/Buie)-2:39
        A rocking tune with guitars, keyboards and vocals blending to create a powerful momentum-a sign of things to come.
9. Can't Stand It No More (Buie/Cobb/Justo)-4:02
        A softer, slower song about romantic disappointment and the need to move on-a style and sentiments that the group would return to with great success.
10. One More Problem (Nix/Daughtry/Buie/Bailey)-3:08
        This starts out as a restrained rocker that builds and breaks lose as the guitarists solo and the vocals intensify.
