The Saturday Night SIzzle Song Of The Day–Pick Up The Pieces By The Average White Band

What a hit this was in 1974,  Pick up the Pieces by the Average White Band, or AWB.  In spite of their name, AWB was that rarest of musical species: a band out of Scotland that specialized in R&B funk. This fun loving instrumental (the only lyrics being the occasional chanting of the song’s title) was their signature tune, going all the way to #1.  Hear it in the eight o’clock hour on the Saturday Night Sizzle.  A great performance is below.
