Half-Speed Master

Widely and rightly regarded as one of the best ever soul and funk bands, the now 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. " AWB's repertoire has 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, will.i.am and Mark Ronson amongst countless others, have all borrowed sections of their grooves. " 'AWB' (aka 'The White Album') is the 2nd album by AWB and their first for Atlantic Records produced by the legendary Arif Mardin, originally released in 1974. The album reached #6 in the UK Albums Chart and #1 in the USA. " 'AWB' includes the ground-breaking classic 'Pick Up The Pieces', also reaching #6 in the UK, as well as the coveted #1 spot in the USA. " AWB are touring the UK in April and May 2024, "taking the album on the road" " This 50th Anniversary celebratory half-speed master version has been newly mastered by Phil Kinrade, and expertly cut using transfers of the original audio tapes using precision half-speed mastering by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering, London and is pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl, with a 4-page insert.
