Info zu Live at the Rainbow Theatre, 1974 (Remastered)

Recently discovered tapes that went missing from the mastering studio in 1974 contain the long-lost concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre, when the band supported jazz legend Billy Cobham.

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 and continuing to reach new generations of younger audiences. Continuing their 50th Anniversary celebrations, this concert release is the only live performance that capture AWB’s original drummer, Robbie McIntosh, who died in tragic circumstances just as AWB and it’s lead single ‘Pick Up The Pieces’ started to break the charts worldwide.

Average White Band
are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit 'Pick Up the Pieces' the band's strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished song-writing, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi- grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six piece took the influences of their R&B heroes - people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway and others - and developed their own 'authentic' sound which was eagerly adopted by black audiences in the US and elsewhere.

Whilst a good number of cuts - 'Cut The Cake' and 'Let's Go 'Round Again' to name but two - attracted chart action as hit singles, many other album tracks, like 'Schoolboy Crush' and 'Person to Person' became much sampled and turn-tabled 'rare' grooves. Many more tunes, such as 'Cloudy', 'A Love Of Your Own' and 'Nothing You Can Do' - amongst many others- stand alongside some of the finest soul 'album tracks' ever recorded.

The current lineup of the band, with noted US musicians alongside founding members Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre, continues to delight audiences and critics alike in its wide - ranging touring. The musical energy and trademark sound are remarkably true to the original, and with constant revisitations and re-workings of AWB's, and others' classics in the mix, it is no surprise that the Average White Band is now a multi - generational attraction, and a perennial fixture with so many of the top music venues.
