Average White Band: Marquee, London
Andrew Tyler, Disc, 7 April 1973
IT'S SO EASY to be brought down by the gross excesses of what is fondly being referred to as the "pop revival." Much of it is so inexplicably dull and awful that many a solid and upright music listener has begun to lose his grip on reality, not to mention his sanity. Whenever I sense another attack on the way, I make a point of seeking out the Average White Band — one of the few musical combinations around who have gone neither daft nor cynical.
