'Average White Band(or AWB to their legion of fans)shot to fame with their 1974,million-selling song Pick Up The Pieces.Their unique blend of soul,funk and R&B has won them both public and critical acclaim in a career spanning over 4 decades.Recorded live at BB King's famous blues club,this stunning Double LP showcases AWB at their very best and proves there is nothing average about this band.Sleeve Notes(Extract):Dundee,Glasgow and Perth in the mid 1960s,and American Soul Music reigned supreme.The future members of the Average White Band were already in groups in these cities dedicated to the art forms of Motown,Stax,Atlantic and other labels pumping out the dance music of the day.When,in London in 1972,they all came together it was to create their own unique amalgam of these sounds,but with their own songs and their own identity.That sound has been kept intact to this day by original members Onnie McIntyre and Alan Gorrie with a trio of younger Black American talents in their current ranks,and their latest recording Times Squared - a live performance from the legendary BB King's Blues Club in New York - amply showcases the dedication of the band in staying true to that joyful sound,with tracks such as Pick Up The Pieces,Person To Person and Let's Go Round Again among the hits performed here to a rabid New York City crowd...(Full notes on sleeve)'
