Indisputably the finest Scottish funk act of the 1970s (or any decade), the Average White Band is well represented by this excellent 18-track collection, which focuses heavily on the group's mid-'70s heyday. Highlights include the immediately recognizable groove-laden hit "Pick Up the Pieces," along with other top-notch, dance-floor-packing tunes such as "Got the Love" and "Cut the Cake."
