Alabama took a song written by members of the group Exile, and made it their own.  'Take Me Down" was originally recorded and released as a single by the band Exile, but had only limited success.  It wasn't until Alabama recorded it that it found the #1 spot on the Country Charts, 30 years ago today.  'Take Me Down" even found success on the Pop Charts with Alabama reaching #18.
