About this release

‘Cupid’s In Fashion’ is the 10th album by AWB, originally released in 1982. The album reached #49 in the US R&B Album Chart. ‘Cupid’s In Fashion’ includes the singles ‘Easier Said Than Done’, as well as the title track. The Side 2 opener, ‘I Believe’, had been recorded by The Real Thing and Donna Summer the previous year.

This was the Band’s second and final album for Arista/RCA and was produced by Dan Hartman.

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.
