Average White Band, AWB (1974)
What got me hooked on the Average White Band was seeing Paul McCartney. His band featured a couple of ex-AWB players, and so – you know – then you go digging. It’s like when you recognise a name on a record cover and want to find out what else they have done…but it turns out of course that I did know Average White Band. Well, I knew Pick Up The Pieces, which is everywhere – and as it should be. So then it was to a couple of compilations to cherry-pick, find some highlights. I reckon most of the band’s highlights can be found right here on this, their second album. A hot record. I found this copy, very recently. One of just a small handful I picked out at the local Vinyl Affair record fair recently. Great to finally have this one. Wanted it a while.
