To the editors:

In my January 6 review of the Ohio Players and Average White Band at the New Regal Theater, I noted that AWB seemed to elicit a stronger connection with the audience, which may have left some readers with the impression that AWB is the more influential band. But to set the record straight, the Ohio Players have clearly left a more significant mark on black music.
