Average White Band: Marquee, London
Martin Hayman, Sounds, 3 March 1973
THE AVERAGE White Band work in a very narrow well-defined area of music, but within that context they excel. Their music is tough and funky all the way and uses many of the tricks of James Brown's Famous Flames — the insistent bumping bass, the spiky guitar fills, the cliff-hanging drum breaks, the dramatic saxophone sortie.
