About this release

Undoubtedly one of Scotland’s finest ever exports, Dundee’s Average White Band conquered the charts on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1970s with their uniquely funky brand of blue-eyed soul music. Their UK hits included ‘Pick Up The Pieces,’ ‘Cut The Cake,‘ ’Queen Of My Soul’ and ‘Let’s Go Round Again,’ all of which are featured here on this essential 2CD overview of the group’s work.

A full two CD totally comprehensive collection of the band’s career from 1973 – 1982. Features the UK Top 6 smash ‘Pick Up The Pieces’ which topped the charts in the US as did the album ‘How Sweet Can You Get’from which the track is lifted. Compilation and sleeve notes by writer for Record Collector, Mojo and Wax Poetics magazine Charles Waring.
