West coast sound from Average White Band…

This underrated Average White Band album produced by David Foster featured songs by AWB with Foster co-writing a couple with the guys. The album’s smooth, jazzy sound turned off fans that liked AWB rawer.

Time, however, has treated these tracks well (they can be found on CD) and what wasn’t cutting-edge at the time has proven to be timeless trinkets. Check out: “Catch Me (Before I Have to Testify),” “Let’s Go Round Again,” “For Your Love,” and “Into the Night,” the LP’s rawest cut.
