Average White Band 'Pick Up The Pieces' Atlantic Records 7" Single

 A slice of classic 70's dancefloor funk with a surprisingly Caledonian accent.

Upon original release in the UK, it didn't chart. Later, it became a hit in the US, selling over a million copies and is the bands signature song.
I actually picked up AWB's 'Benny & Me' collaborative LP in a job lot of records about a year ago and was amazed how listenable it is.

Just before Christmas, it again popped up on a 'Holiday Boogie' playlist, curated by none other than Ashley Beedle, that popped up on the Strut Website. (Just proving that it's actually impossible to be original).
