513. Average White Band

Although they were certainly white, our next listed band proved to be anything but average. The Average White Band was a Scottish group who blazed through the 70’s with a string of Soul, Funk and Disco tunes that displayed technical brilliance. They blurred the expected color lines of music and anyone who just heard them (that is without hearing their ironically titled band name) would never have guessed what they would have looked like and where they were from. Chances are that they may not have had a successful enough run and enough hits for Hall consideration, but they are certainly worth a glance.
