From his hit-making '70s heyday until his untimely passing in 2003, Barry White set an unmatched standard for sexy, seductive and soulful R&B. As a vocalist, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, White created music that was unmatched in its sonic and romantic intensity, highlighted by lush, widescreen arrangements and his iconic deep, dark baritone voice. Over the course of his remarkable career, the 2x Grammy Award-winner accumulated 106 gold albums worldwide, with 41 of those attaining platinum status, along with 20 gold and 10 platinum singles. With worldwide record sales of over 100 million records, he remains one of the best-selling recording artists of all time.
Mercury Records/Universal Music is set to unveil a series of catalogue releases in 2018 of Barry White's classic work, in a yearlong celebration of the 45th anniversary of The Walrus of Love's debut on 20th Century Records. The UNI, MCA and 20th Century Records Singles features all ten of Love Unlimited's U.S. 7-inch singles released between 1972-1975, the first compilation to pull together all the group's A- and B-sides that appeared on UNI, MCA, and 20th Century Records. Perfectly positioned for all Barry White collectors and soul/R&B aficionados, it includes the hits "Walkin' In The Rain With The One I Love," "Is It Really True Boy – Is It Really Me," and many others across 2LPs.
