AllMusic Review by

Classic Cuts combines the tracks from Average White Band's underrated Arista album Shine, which featured "Catch Me (Before I Have to Testify)" and "Let's Go Round Again," with sizzling live renditions of their greatest hits, including a smoldering "Cloudy" and good-as-the-studio versions of "Cut the Cake," "Pick Up the Pieces," and "Schoolboy Crush," capped by a rousing finale of Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong's "I Heard it Through the Grapevine." There's nothing bagpipe-ish about these Scots.
