Music for Monday: Average White Band, ‘Pick Up The Pieces’

Average White Band picking up the pieces at Montreux, 1977

Dundee, Scotland’s Average White Band released “Pick Up The Pieces” in the summer of 1974 in their native UK where it originally failed to ignite much of a spark. After the band’s AWB L.P. was released in the US, the single caught fire and rose to number one on the Billboard chart (and #6 in the UK) by February, 1975.

Here’s a clip of the band performing in Montreux, Switzerland in 1977. If you’re a fan of saxophones, 70s slacks and beards – you will be in retro heaven with this’un.
