Okay so towards the end AWB headed down the disco path which lead them away from what many saw as their true soul approach, however it is hard to find a soul artist who at this time did not go the same way. Disco had a short life but was ubiquitous, even the Rolling Stone were influenced with Miss You (featured on Some Girls)being their biggest single of that era. So it was inevitable that AWB also followed this trend, I for one was disappointed that they did not retain a stronger jazz element that was there in their very early work but I do recognise why they took the direction they did, and they produced some cracking albums along the way.

Within the changing stylistic context that these albums were recorded this represents a very strong finish for a fine band. For a band that formed in the unlikely setting of Dundee (albeit in a tremendously creative cultural melting pot of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art), AWB travelled a long way. This band had quite a strong influence on a number of 80s bands sounds who are the current retro flavour of the month and style followers could do a lot worse than starting with this bands music.

My recommendation is to start with the bookends of this album and Show Your Hand & How Sweet Can You Get & Average White Band. You should then check out The Collection Vol.2: Cut the Cake/Soul Searching/Benny and Us and

I bought this as a gift for my partner and he was over the moon with it, it has a bit of evrything for everyone, he actually wanted Shine, so the other 3 albums on the cd's are a bonus. If you are a AWB fan, this is a must have for your collection!

I first enjoyed AWB back as a student in the late 1970s. Had the "White" album. Re-bought it as a CD. Began listening again to it. Recently realised just how tight, smooth and soulful they really were. Noticed for the first time the complexity of the music, especially the vocal interplays between the two lead vocalists. So I decided to get some of their back catalogue, hence my purchase of this 2 disc, 3.5 album (?) collection. The first few tracks are up to standard. I love the rhythm of the opener, and Atlantic Avenue, whilst simple, is evocative. Then from track 8 it's all downhill. Even the extensive sleeve notes seem to suggest the last album in particular is naff. It's nothing more than 70s-80s disco trash with no soul and no style. Shame. Maybe we had better just accept that all things must pass and AWB peaked around 1976.

AWB, SOME MIGHT SAY, AT THERE BEST 13 Oct 2009
By Dell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When it comes to the Average White Band I was some what of a late bloomer. Sure I liked "work to do", "a love of your own" "if i ever lose this heaven", but alot of the things they did, let's say, i didn't get it. I never got it, until "Shine". Let's say "Shine" was after the hey days of the Average White Band, one might say. I say it was some of there best stuff. "Let's Go'Round Again", til this day, my favorite AWB song. Yea there's plenty more "help is on the way", "if love only last for one night", "for you for love". Not only did I get "Shine" again, there's "Cupids In Fashion", even AWB themself didn't like that one, but let me tell you, it's some great songs on this one too "you wanna belong", "is it love that your running from". Then there's "Fell The Fret", another great cd nobody ever heard, but those late blumer like me. "ace of heart", "too late to cry", "loves gives, loves takes away" want more? Here comes "growing pains", you'll keep your thumb on the repeat button for this one...I did. After this cd bonanza, you might be ready to take another AWB giant step, you might be ready for "Soul Tatoo", enjoy.

Great compilation 29 April 2013
By nobsartist - Published on Amazon.com

A great collection of music from the AWB. Although these were the last records cut and used some questionable producers, the tunes are great. Some of them are true classics such as "When will you be mine", a tune every great bar band wishes they came up with.
Great albums on 2-CD high quality issue 3 Feb 2013
By Peter Pitkianen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All albums on this 2-CD issue are great, with strong tracks and musicianship. This edition is also very well produced - liner notes, photos, and songs lyrics for each album, making owning it a pleasure, like holding a vinyl record. Highly recommended to the lovers of late 1970s-early 1980s jazz flavored funk/R%B music.

I had the vynil version of 3 of the 4 and was so glad to see they were finally released on cd. Some really great music on all of these cds, the last 2 shine and cupids in fashion, are maybe my fave AWB albums. If you like stylish soul and funk, pick this cd up defintely worth it
