    Average White Band

    First Time Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music & Capitol Mastering


    Their self-effacing name to the contrary, Average White Band was anything but - one of the few white groups to cross the color line and achieve success and credibility playing funk, with their tight, fiery sound also belying their Scottish heritage, evoking American R&B hotbeds like Detroit, Memphis, and Philadelphia instead. Singer/bassist Alan Gorrie, guitarists Hamish Stuart and Onnie McIntyre, tenor saxophonist Malcolm Duncan, keyboardist/saxophonist Roger Ball, and drummer Robbie McIntosh comprised the original Average White Band lineup. Veterans of numerous Scottish soul and jazz groups, they made their debut in 1973 as the opening act at Eric Clapton's Rainbow Theatre comeback gig, soon issuing their debut LP, Show Your Hand, to little notice. After adopting the abbreviated moniker AWB, a year later the band issued their self-titled sophomore effort, topping the American pop charts with the Arif Mardin-produced instrumental "Pick Up the Pieces." The record's mammoth success was nevertheless tempered by the September 23, 1974 death of McIntosh, who died at a Hollywood party after overdosing on heroin.


    Ex-Bloodstone drummer Steve Ferrone replaced McIntosh for AWB's third album, 1975's Cut the Cake, which scored a Top Ten hit with its title track as well as two other chart entries, "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" and "School Boy Crush." (Put It Where You Want It, issued later that same year, was simply a retitled and repackaged Show Your Hand.) With 1976's Soul Searching, the group reclaimed the full Average White Band name, scoring their final Top 40 hit with "Queen of My Soul." Following the live Person to Person, they issued Benny & Us, a collaboration with soul legend Ben E. King. However, after subsequent outings, including 1978's Warmer Communications, 1979's Feel No Fret, and 1980's Shine, failed to recapture the energy of AWB's peak, the group dissolved in 1982, with Ferrone later joining Duran Duran and Stuart recording with Paul McCartney. Gorrie, Ball, and McIntyre reformed Average White Band in 1989, tapping vocalist Alex Ligertwood for their comeback effort Aftershock. Oft-sampled by hip-hop producers throughout the 1990s, the group continued touring prior to releasing Soul Tattoo in 1996. The live album, Face to Face, followed three years later.

    Bloodstone & Diamonds

    "I cannot even begin to tell you how proud we are
    of this album. It's been a heck of a ride. It looked
    like it might not ever happen again at one point,
    but man, this album is a milestone for us. You're
    going to love it Head Cases." - Robb Flynn


    Bay Area Metal Titans MACHINE HEAD, will release their
    eighth full-length album and Nuclear Blast Entertainment
    debut, Bloodstone & Diamonds! The record was
    once again produced by Robb Flynn himself and Juan Urteaga
    (TESTAMENT, VILE), and like the last 7 out of 8 albums,
    was masterfully mixed by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, SLIPKNOT, BEHEMOTH, DEVILDRIVER).
    Additional tracking, editing, and mixing was done with heavy
    metal legend Andy Sneap (EXODUS, TESTAMENT, ARCH
    ENEMY, ACCEPT, MEGADETH) and Steve Lagudi.


    " bloodstone and diamonds represent two of the hardest materials on earth, it is also a lyric from the opening track of the album 'Now We Die'. In many cultures the bloodstone has been used as an amulet to protect against evil, and is the symbol of justice. Diamonds and are the hardest natural material on earth (which is how we feel about our music), and it also represents the diamond logo I drew 22 years ago (in my wife's apartment on Dover St. in Oakland) that has become the symbol for the band." - Robb Flynn
