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.

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.

‘Cut The Cake’ is the 3rd album by AWB, originally released in 1975. The album reached #28 in the UK Albums Chart and #4 in the USA.

‘Cut The Cake’ also includes the much-sampled classic ‘School Boy Crush’, which reached #33 in the USA and the title track, which charted at #31 in the UK and #10 in the USA.

It was produced by Atlantic’s legendary producer, Arif Mardin.
