Average White Band – Cut The Cake


Following on from this post, I found another piece of the Average White Band jigsaw, from further back in time, and another step nearer to their first album – the one that is, according my friend in the comments box, ‘the one to get’. “Cut The Cake” is apparently ‘pale in comparison’, but I’m quite enjoying it anyway, not yet having had the opportunity to make that unfavourable comparison with their earlier masterpiece. Ignorance is bliss.

I was surprised to discover that the beginning of “School Boy Crush” was the source of the 1-bar sample loop that propels my absolute favourite Eric B. & Rakim tune “Microphone Fiend”, sleigh bells and all!

Now, if a groove like that is good enough for Eric B, it’s good enough for me too. But still, I’m looking forward to finding that first album. Patience, patience…
