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. 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. As there aren't any multi tracks, nothing has been altered from the live performances. This rare and historic live recording 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 chartsworldwide. Tracks performed are from their first two albums "Show Your Hand" and "AWB"
