The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

Widely and rightly regarded as one of the best ever soul and funk bands, the now legendary Average White Band tore-up the rule book and conquered the US, UK & International charts with a series of soul and disco hits between 1974 and 1980.  AWB's repertoire has been a source of inspiration and influence for many R&B acts and they are one of the most sampled bands in history, remaining relevant today, continuing to reach new generations of younger audiences.  Snoop Dogg, Fatboy Slim, Ice Cube, Puff Daddy, TLC, Rick Ross, will. i. am and Mark Ronson amongst countless others, have all borrowed sections of their grooves.  'AWB' (aka 'The White Album') is the 2nd album by AWB and their first for Atlantic Records produced by the legendary Arif Mardin, originally released in 1974. The album reached #6 in the UK Albums Chart and #1 in the USA.  'AWB' includes the ground-breaking classic 'Pick Up The Pieces', also reaching #6 in the UK, as well as the coveted #1 spot in the USA.  AWB are touring the UK in April and May 2024, "taking the album on the road"  This 50th Anniversary celebratory half-speed master version has been newly mastered by Phil Kinrade, and expertly cut using transfers of the original audio tapes using precision half-speed mastering by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering, London and is pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl, with a 4-page insert.
