20th Century Records Singles (1973-1979)
3 LP set. 'The Love Unlimited Orchestra can be seen as the bold gesture of Barry White's grand vision of love. The Orchestra's singles between 1973 and 1979 are a joyous complement to White's work as a solo artist, and as the producer behind Love Unlimited. Utilizing the same studio and pool of musicians as he would for all his recordings in this era, White created an unmistakable and multi-platinum selling sound, and on February 9, 1974, Love's Theme became the 357th No. 1 record in the US. Featuring all 14 of Love Unlimited Orchestra's US 7" singles released between 1973-1979, as well as the 12" Single Disco versions of a further 7 tracks, this set is the first compilation to pull together all the group's A- and B-sides. Perfectly positioned for all Barry White collectors and soul / R&B aficionados, it includes the hits: Love's Theme, Rhapsody In White, Satin Soul, My Suite Summer Suite, and Theme From "Shaft". With newly remastered audio from the 20th Century Records master tapes, and with the 3LP cut at Abbey Road Studios for the highest possible sound quality, this fantastic new compilation includes new liner essays by music writer and broadcaster Daryl Easlea, and detailed track notes.
