Album of the Day
Feel No Fret
A Scottish funk group might have seemed a novelty at the beginning of the 1970s, but by the time of FEEL NO FRET at the end of the decade, the Average White Band were a force to be reckoned with on dance floors. Produced by AWB themselves, the 1979 collection features an outstanding lineup of songs including “When Will You Be Mine,” “Atlantic Avenue” and “Too Late to Cry” (which includes Luther Vandross on backing vocals); joining those originals is a soulful cover of “Walk On By” that was a minor hit in both the U.S and England. With its varied tempos and moods, killer grooves and impassioned performances, the Average White Band's FEEL NO FRET is far above average.
