3.0 out of 5 stars Good effort 7 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
Latter day AWB were more pop than funk, but this twoofer is absolutely essential for 'Love Wont Get in the Way', a stonker of a track which harks back to the sublime moments on the White Album where Gorrie and Stuart shared lead vocals. The track first appeared on an Atlantic contract filler album ( Volume 8 )and comes from the same sessions as Shine, but wipes the floor with anything else on that penultimate album.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 albums on 2 CDs plus more... read on 25 Oct 2008
By Terrence D. Hillman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was and still is the best reissue on CD (for "Feel No Fret" truly remastered, and "Shine" which includes the 4 tracks issued on "Feel No Fret... and more" plus 1 b-side track and "Let's Go Round Again 12" Version - both on CD for the first time!) All tracks regenerated from the original master tapes. There will be NO reissue like this for the Shine lp, no matter how many they release from Japan. The myth that the best issues of CDs come from Japan is total crap! The origination of CDs come from Japan, and that's a fact, but that's as far as that goes. Any recording to any degree recorded to a CD is the same, which the aspects of sound come from the original artists, their producers, and the engineers that worked of each project. Nowadays, lots of these CDs from Japan DO NOT include bonus tracks and are not worth the prices issued as imports. Even if they do have bonus tracks, they may not be worth having (more than likely, you can't hear the tracks before purchasing, or may not even have a track listing on AMAZON.com.) Don't believe the hype because you may just be let down. No hype on this review because after hearing the 12" version of "Let's Go..., you won't be disappointed!!

Very good CD's any true Average White Band lover should have in their collection. When will you be mine, walk on by, let's go round again, shine, and the original (Hamish Stuart penned) whatcha' gonna do for me and the other tunes plus the extra tracks makes it well worth the $$
If you like The Average White Band take it home with you, you won't be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars An All Too Hidden R&B Secret 20 Feb 2009
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Average White Band are not unknown to R&B and rock fans. They were one of the earliest bands to get a funk instrumental Top 10 pop radio with "Pick Up The Pieces" from their AWB. By the mid 70's the bands fortunes began to decline on both sides of the Atlantic as their sound became somewhat more artistic and album oriented. These two albums showcased the band making wonderful and unique attempts to modernize their sound as the 70's became the 80's (they were released in 1979 and 1980 respectively).Since I've already reviewed these albums seperately I am going to provide links to the seperate albums I reviewed and discuss here how these recordings relate to eachother. On 1979's Feel No Fret...And More the band have decided to focus heavily on strong pop songwriting and a strong soulful feeling.It didn't exactly solve their commercial woes in the US but did rebuild their reputation overseas as the kings of blue eyed funk. As for Shine this finds the band starting the 80's produced by commercial mastermind David Foster for a varriation of their sound..more commercially paletable to American ears. But frankly,by the time it was released their was a recession in the music industry and US pop and urban radio had lost interest in AWB so the album went unnoticed,despite featuring nothing but terric songs with one of Foster's best productions. This edition features state of the art remastering,an excellent informative booklet with the complete original front and back covers for both albums printed on the inside.Not only that this set draws draws attention to two recordings that,after hearing this will make you wonder what industry political machinary of the late 70's/early 80's resulted in the commercial snooze that were this two classics.
4.0 out of 5 stars Still holdin' on 22 Nov 2008
By A. E. Pagano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These two albums/Cds are essentially the collective swan song of the original AWB. Feel No Fret is AWB's farewell to Atlantic and their "real" sound. There are certainly arguments that this CD is not among their strongest efforts, but there are some great memorable songs including "When Will you Be Mine", "Please Don't Fall In Love", "Keep the Fire Burning". The songs display true elements of the Atlantic Soul sound and evidence that Gorrie and Stuart really are two gifted and talented "R & B" songwriters. Shine on the otherhand introduces AWB to David Foster and the slick produced sound often associated with Earth, Wind and, Fire. There are some great tunes, but for the most part Foster's influence was more a detriment than an asset. The high points: "Shine", "For You, For Love", "If Love only Lasts.." are essentially AWB with and 80's sound (although I believe this was originally released in 1978 or '79.) After the next Arista effort, Cupid's In Fashion, Hamish Stuart split and the heart of AWB went with him. Gorrie continues to tour and record some really good music, but the real deal essentially ends here.
