This will be the first of two AWB posts. I just scored another record of theirs, the one that features Ben E. King on vocals. This one is called AWB. I did not know they were from Scotland. "AWB is the second studio album by the Scottish funk and soul band Average White Band, released in August 1974. An enormous best-seller, AWB was the Average White Band's breakthrough record, stunning many listeners with its soul and funk coming from a Scottish band. AWB topped Billboard's Pop Albums and Black Albums charts. Its million-selling single "Pick Up the Pieces" knocked Linda Ronstadt's classic "You're No Good" out of #1 on Billboard's Hot 100. A 2004 expanded re-issue from Sony/Columbia in the UK includes a bonus CD with several demo session recordings made before the group joined Atlantic Records – taken from the so-called 'clover sessions." This record was PRODUCED BY ARIF MARDEN. And the great Jerry Wexler gets a thank you shout out on back cover.
