Alan Gorrie, Malcolm “Molly” Duncan, Onnie McIntyre, Michael Rosen, Roger Ball and Robbie McIntosh were the original line-up of Scottish musicians to form The Average White Band in 1972. Show Your Hand was their 1973 debut album on the MCA label and it failed to make an impact. They left MCA and signed with Atlantic who released their second album, AWB, which became their breakthrough into the ears of American soul/funk fans. “Person To Person” is from this second album as well as their biggest hit song “Pick Up The Pieces.” During the band’s peak in the ’70’s their popularity was strengthened with the singles “If I Ever Lose This Heaven,” “School Boy Crush,” “Cut The Cake,” “A Love Of Your Own,“Get It Up For Love,” “Queen of My Soul,” “Cloudy” and “Let’s Go Round Again.” Robbie McIntosh passed in 1974 and the band’s members have changed through the years but they continue to tour and 2003’s Living In Colour was their last recording. They also have the distinction of being the 15th most-sampled act in hip-hop.
