Musical Massage is very similar to Marvin Gaye’s I Want You, not even incidentally: Leon Ware had just produced Gaye’s album, and a lot of the material from his own record went there. So you can expect a similar ‘‘musical massage’’ of the erotic type as I Want You. With glorious featuring as Minnie Ripperton, Bobby Womack, Ray Parker Jr. or Marvin Gaye himself…this album is just wonderful!

The Average White Band, a group of Scotsmen playing American soul and funk music, came together in the late Sixties and topped the US chart in 1974. A version of the band led by bassist Alan Gorrie tours to this day while guitarist Hamish Stewart went on to be Paul McCartney’s musical right hand man.This hour-long TV showcase from the Rockstage series, filmed by Central Television at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in 1980, catches the classic AWB line-up in their prime. It includes that years UK Number 12 dance smash ‘Let’s Go Round Again’, album title track ‘Atlantic Avenue’, transatlantic hit ‘Queen Of My Soul’ and much more.
Not as arresting as two previous albums. It only produced one bonafide hit, "Good Lovin' Ain't Easy to Come By," while the others spawned three each. Tammi became ill before this record was completed, and Valerie Simpson had to perform many of the tracks. Simpson is a good singer but doesn't have the charm, charisma, or sexy Southern drawl that Tammi was blessed with. A remake of Terrell's solo outing "I Can't Believe You Love Me" adds nothing to the original; likewise for lackluster renditions of "California Soul," "I'm Your Puppet," and "Baby, I Need Your Loving." "The Onion Song" has to be Ashford and Simpson's silliest composition despite its positive social message. Along with the hit, the best songs here are "This Poor Heart of Mine," an uptempo number and good workout for the duo, and "Love Woke Me Up This Morning," an endearing exercise in romanticism. Fans weren't awestruck by this release, its highest rating was #184 on Billboard's pop album chart.*Release-date: 12-2-2016
