Pick Up the Pieces by Average White Band

The Average White Band tore it up with this legendary fusion track from 1974. I don’t really know much about the band but do know that as a young boy, I loved this song! The one guitar (in this video, the Fender Telecaster) fast strumming, another guitar (the Gretch Falcon) doing a single note comp-style pattern and a solid funk rhythym and backbeat lay the perfect foundation for of course, the saxophones. Even though it screams ’70s John Holmes era 8mm porn films, there is still something bright and feel-good with this hoppin’ little number. Great stuff!
