Average White Band is a catalog essential for any soulful beat digger. Whenever I come across an AWB album, I’ve got a pick up a copy. If not for me, then for a fellow digger that may be missing an AWB record or two.
AWB always kept a hard groove and interesting melodies that laid in the pocket. Love Your Life, I’m The One, and Pick Up The Pieces were all dope.
To boot, their album art was really cool too. David Heffernan, one of my vinyl dealer friends and an amazing artist @ Revolution in Maplewood, NJ actually designed some of their cover artwork (such a small world).
Hope you enjoy today’s groove - keep diggin!
