No bad fir some boys fae Broughty!,
This review is from: Awb [Us Import] (Audio CD)
These guys come from the Dundee area (my home town) and their ironic name belies the fact that they are an extraordinary funk and soul outfit. Their influences are firmly rooted in the Motown/Stax sound as evinced here by their fantastic cover of the Isley bros. 'Work to Do' (They also went on to record an album with Ben E. King).
This album was released in 1974 and the standout track (which you will instantly recognise as soon as the funk guitar hook kicks in) is 'Pick Up the Pieces'. It has been a standard for funk and soul DJs up and down the country ever since. For me the funkier numbers are my favourites though the album mainly comprises harmony soul tracks. If you like Motown/Stax or just plain good soul music get this album. The harmonies are spot on and the playing is (very!) slick and tight.
I couldn't believe this had no review!

I thought that it was known as "The Ferry".
