But they're average...and they're white. And if that's not surprise enough, they're from Scotland. ::

That's a great album, not a bad song on it. I always liked the way they made their Ws.

Definitely the funkiest white boys.


Speaking of funky white boys, might as well add:

Wild Cherry - Play that Funky Music White Boy

Funky Stevie Wonder is, in my opinion, the best Stevie Wonder. I have to second "Master Blaster," and I'll add "Pasttime Paradise."

Some other stuff you might like:

"Love Rollercoaster" by The Ohio Players

"Pope" by Prince

"Kickin' Back" by LTD

"Tell Me Something Good" by Rufus

Also, check out the latest album from Tower Of Power - it's called The Oakland Zone. Love the horns.
