    Average White Band-"50: A 50th Anniversary Celebration" 15CD box set [2/2/2024-Edsel]

    Description
    Widely and rightly regarded as one of the best ever soul and funk bands, the now legendary Average White Band tore-up the rule book and conquered the US, UK & International charts with a series of soul and disco hits between 1974 and 1980. 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, remaining relevant today, continuing to reach new generations of younger audiences.

    Snoop Dogg, Fatboy Slim, Ice Cube, Puff Daddy, TLC, Rick Ross, will. i. am and Mark Ronson amongst countless others, have all borrowed sections of their grooves.
    '50' is a 133 track/15 Disc 50th anniversary celebration of the Band's classic studio albums from 1973's debut 'Show Your Hand', up to 1982's 'Cupid's In Fashion'. The set also includes their Live album 'Person To Person', which was also a US Top 30 Album, the 'spoiler' album 'Volume VIII', the reconfigured 'Shine' - aka 'On The Strip' - and an 8 track disc with selected 12" mixes, two of which make their CD debut, early versions, live and later discovered tracks.
    '50' includes an Introductory note from Onnie McIntyre with his personal recollections, although the framework of these 10,000 word notes have appeared in previous collections or releases. However, as they were such indepth interviews both Alan Gorrie and Hamish Stuart felt that there wasn't anything further that could be written about those early days.
    Average White Band are touring the UK in April and May 2024, taking their iconic album 'AWB' on the road.

    Happy to see anything still coming out on CD once the calendar rolls over into 2024. Maybe the format is going to hang around a little longer than we have been told.

    The opening riff [[which recurs thru the track) seems to have been lifted from Prince Buster ...

    It's a shame they didn't provide a tracklist for a set this large. Even more hard to believe that the price of the 5-CD box set is equal to $24 per disc. Whew!

    I found tracklistings for this set at both Amazon USA & UK [and they are taking pre-orders for the box as well]:
