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 Love Unlimited Orchestra can be seen as the bold gesture of 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. Featuring all 14 of Love Unlimited Orchestra's U.S. 7" singles released between 1973-1979, as well as the 12" single disco versions of a further 7 tracks, this 3LP-set is the first compilation to pull together all the group's A- and B-sides.
