Atkins is a 1982 album by the American Los Angeles-based R&B family vocal group Atkins, released on Warner Bros. Records. The album was produced by Freddie Perren, but production of "We Gon' Make You Feel Good" was also handled by Ric Wyatt Jr. This was Perren's first production to be released through a record label owned by a major film studio (aside from Perren having some success with the soundtrack for the 1977 Paramount film Saturday Night Fever). Although it failed to chart in the United States, it had one hit single: "Feel It, Don't Fight It".[2] The album is currently in public domain, and it is unknown whether it will be reissued.
