Release Date:02/10/2017;Notes:Limited edition 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. Average White Band is widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit "Pick Up the Pieces" off of this, their breakthrough Arif Mardin-produced 1974 album, the band's strength actually lays in their consistently accomplished songwriting, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi-Grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six piece took the influences of their R&B heroes - people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway and others - and developed their own 'authentic' sound which was eagerly adopted by black audiences in the US and elsewhere. Whilst a good number of cuts attracted chart action as hit singles, many other album tracks, like the aforementioned "Pick Up the Pieces" also became much sampled and turn-tabled 'rare' grooves. Many more tunes like "Nothing You Can Do" stand alongside some of the finest soul tracks ever recorded.;Track List:1. You Got It;2. Got the Love;3. Pick Up the Pieces;4. Person to Person;5. Work to Do;6. Nothing You Can Do;7. Just Wanna Love You Tonight;8. Keepin' It to Myself;9. I Just Can't Give You Up;10. There's Always Someone Waiting;Special Attributes:180 GRAM VINYL, LIMITED EDITION, ANNIVERSARY EDITION
