The Average White Band. Managed to nail Funk and Soul with surprising ease. . . .for a bunch of White guys from Scotland.

This week’s selection is another one of those songs that I am surprised didn’t make the column sooner because it’s one of my favorites. “If I Ever Lose This Heaven” appeared on the third Average White Band album, Cut the Cake in 1975. It was also released as a single, and while it wasn’t as successful as some of the other AWB singles, it did manage to reach #39 on the US pop chart, and #25 on the R&B chart.
