'Anthology' Is prefaced with an historical introspection by Alan Gorrie and Hamish Stuart. The 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. However, awb's rich and deep catalogue has also 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 and will.I.Am amongst countless others, have all borrowed sections of their grooves. 'Anthology', a 73 track/5CD set, is more than a collection of awb's recordings. It explores their journey that started in the early-'70s forging a legacy that transcended the decades and provided a source of inspiration for today's groove-merchants and EDM DJs. Curated by AWB and focussing on the period from their earliest recordings through to their final album for Arista in 1982, Each individually themed CD - The Classics/ sampled (jazz, blues & funk)/ Sampled (soul & funk)/ 7?, 12? & early versions/ rarities & live recordings - showcases their versatility and why average White Band became widely and rightly regarded as one of the best ever soul and funk bands. Average White Band remain highly influential and this 73 track 'anthology' Shows exactly why they have remained so powerfully important. CD1 Pick Up The Pieces Cut The Cake Sh
