BUIE BUILDS ATLANTA'S OWN ACT
ATLANTA- Veteran writer-producer Buddy Buie has always been one of Atlanta's music pioneers. As a songwriter, Buie worked with co-writer J.R. Cobb in writing numerous hit records. Today, under the management of ATI chairman Jeff Franklin, Buie is a major force in Atlanta.
Since that time, Buie's foresight had developed a very important segment of the Atlanta music foundation. Two and one half years ago, Buie saw the need for a studio with an established rhythm section. Today, THE ATLANTA RHYTHM SECTION has created more than a unique sound for Studio One; the studio developed by Buie, Cobb, Paul Cochran and Bill Lowery. The group is now on MCA Records. They have grown from individuals adept at recording single records into a solid act that is growing in popularity and making the transition to album product.
Additionally, the studio will be equipped with Quad, DBX's, a Spectrasonic board and Automated Computerized Remix, that is already attracting top names. Lewellan-Martin of Louisville, Kentucky are equipping the studio; DEEP PURPLE, AL KOOPER, THE CLASSICS IV, JOE SOUTH, BILLY JOE ROYAL and B.J. THOMAS have found a profitable sound at Studio 1. The new board and that solid rhythm section have increased the demand of the private studio into an active cutting house. Rodney Mills serves as chief engineer. Buie's ATLANTA RHYTHM SECTION has even found demand in major concerts across the nation.
The staff of Studio One has grown to two engineers, an accountant and a secretary. Buie is now working with Jerry Coon and Shorty Watkins and the Boogie Band. Outside clients now include Hanna-Barbera Productions. Buie is currently working on sound tracks for their Saturday morning cartoon show, "Butch Cassady and the Sundance Kid," to begin September 8, on NBC. Also, DENNIS YOST & THE CLASSICS IV's current single, "Save The Sunlight," was done at Studio 1.
Studio 1 has three independent producers in Buddy Buie, J.R. Cobb and Robert Nix. The innovative organization is one of the major forces establishing the Atlanta sound.
