Much is made of the fact that the members of the Average White Band were pale-faced Scots who somehow managed to be funky as all get-out, but the truth is that AWB was simply one of the tightest R&B/funk combos of the 1970s, regardless of ethnicity and nationality. The band's fourth album continues the momentum of its predecessors by offering more lock-step grooves and slippery bass lines peppered with clarion horns and memorable vocal refrains. The title track, an R&B hit in 1975, is a case in point.
CUT THE CAKE also contains smooth mid-tempo groovers ("School Boy Crush"), and quiet storm balladry ("Cloudy" and a cover of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven"), sounding sharp and sassy in all styles. Despite the tragic death of their original drummer a year before, AWB sound both focused and invigorated here, so that CUT THE CAKE still delivers the funk, and ends up ranking among the band's better albums.
