Paul Goddard (Atlanta Rhythm Section)

The late Paul Goddard anchored a dexterous collective of seasoned Georgia session cats who struck out on their own as the Atlanta Rhythm Section, and emerged as a staple on FM radio and concert halls coast to coast in the 1970s.


Plying  his craft on a Rickenbacker 4001 and Fender Precision with a plectrum,  Goddard was a master melodic pocket player and soloist.


Paul’s blistering chromatic bass breaks on “Another Man’s Woman” as rendered on the studio slab Red Tape (1976) and the live two-fer Are You Ready (1979) are the stuff of legend.
