This unique R’n’B/Soul group from Scotland became one of the best selling and sounding funk bands in the world. The horn section started out as “The Dundee Horns”. They can be heard on Johnny Nash’s reggae hit “I Can See Clearly Now”. It wasn’t until they reached the US and were signed to Atlantic Records that the Average White Band really took off. Arif Mardin became their producer and all of their seventies albums reached gold or even platinum status and “Pick Up The Pieces” and “Cut The Cake” were number 1 hits on the U.S. Billboard Charts. Tragedy hit the group in 1974 when their drummer, Robbie McIntosh died at a Hollywood party in a drug-related incident, but their act only became stronger, Steve Ferrone joined to replace Robbie on drums.
The Double album “Person To Person”, recorded during their American 1975 Tour, is among the best selling live funk albums ever. Forget any prejudgements you may make about this group – This is CLASS!! On a Nice PROMO in EXCELLENT shape!!
