About this release

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.

Although probably best known for their global hit, the US #1 signature single ‘Pick Up The Pieces’, this superb collection features 45 classic recordings from their prolific ten year recorded music output from ‘Show Your Hand’/’Put It Where You Want It’ (1973) to ‘Cupid’s In Fashion’ (1982). 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.

This ‘Gold’ 3CD collection also includes their other UK, US and International hits, ‘Cut The Cake’, ‘Queen of My Soul’, ‘Walk On By’, ‘For You, For Love’, the much sampled ‘School Boy Crush’, ‘When Will You Be Mine’, ‘If I Ever Lose This Heaven’ and the floorfiller ‘Let’s Go ‘Round Again’, as well as collaborations with Ben E. King, album favourites, a number of those heavily sampled tracks, and live performance favourites.
