I've forgotten how many copies I have of the AWB White Album ... First bought on vinyl in 75 [lent it to a girl that I met at the Apollo in Glasgow and never saw it or her again]... replaced it, bought it on tape for the car, then on CD as soon as it was released, and then on CD again when it was re-mastered.
Like a select band of classic albums [Marvin's - I Want You, Stevie's - Innervisions, Bowie's - Ziggy, Rod's - Every Picture, Marleys - Exodus & Hall & Oates Abandoned Luncheonette] I guess I'll keep on buying this one in every damm format they ever release !
The great thing about this particular release is that there is a bonus disc that is worth paying the money for alone ... The disc is made up from the much talked about, but until now un-heard 'Clover' sessions ...
The Clover sessions should have been the bands 2nd album for MCA, but they were cut from the label, and when they signed for Atlantic they took the songs with them and re-recorded most of them under the stewardship of the great Atlantic & Aretha producer Arif Mardin.
Unlike most demo's this set is excellently recorded and the playing as you'd expect from the boys is awesome. There is a freshness and vitality to the recordings that in some instances is even better than the slick Atlantic release. There are also a couple of new songs on the Clover sessions, that didn't make the White Album.
The White Album itself is just pure class.. from the opening chords of 'You Got It' to a magic version of the Isley's 'Work To Do' to the legendary 'Pick up the pieces' every single song is worthty of inclusion.
The playing is immense, and the vocals shared by the great Hamish Stuart and Alan Gorrie are superb. I once read that AWB were the ultimate band ...

Wonderful review by Fitzp22. All that i will add is this album contains some of the sweetest soul music ever made, Regretfully the Average White Band are vastly underrated in the UK and this album in particular seems to have slipped under the radar of so many soul music lovers here.They still remain one of the most successful British groups in the U.S. Even soul music stations here can only offer up "pick up the pieces" as their only track on the play list."Work to do", "Nothing you can do",!person to person!,Keeping it to myself". If you hear anything better than these gems sung with REAL soul then please let me know!
I guarantee if you buy this, it will instantly be amongst the TOP 5 albums you ever bought!! ENJOY!!!

Apart from the seminal Pick up the pieces this album has something for everyone. Work to Do and You Got it are true party tracks. Are these guys really from Scotland? Best thing to come out of Dundee!

Great to have this 'album' back. I wore this out on Vinyl over 30 years ago. Still sounds as fresh as ever. Great to have it back again.

Sadly arrived in a condition that was not as described. Had to give CD several cleans before would play. The cover was also in a dusty/dirty condition
