This record was released on ABC Records in 1975 by the group calling themselves The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Third Rate Romance hit #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #11 on the top Country Chart that year. This record sounds good but does show a little wear.
The Aces toured and did concerts up until the early 1980's when they split up. However in 1997 they resumed their career and are still performing today. The current members of the band are guitarists Kelvin Holly and Fred James, drummer Michael Dillon Curington and bassist Jimmy Clay as well as original members Russell Smith and keyboardist Billy Earheart III, who has been with the band from the beginning.
