Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
When Barry White first burst onto the music scene in 1973--seemingly out of nowhere--he was dismissed by some critics as an Isaac Hayes imitator. Like Hayes (a chart maker since 1969), White had a deep baritone that made him a natural musical "lover man," and even though his physique was a real contrast to the sexy image of Marvin Gaye or an early-'70s Al Green, the multitalented producer, songwriter, and artist knew that he had the kind of vocal style to win over a primarily female audience. With this, his very first album, White's music clearly had plenty of bedroom appeal. Using the same technique as Hayes, with extended songs that lasted several minutes, White helped put a lock on midnight love anthems. In addition to the pop and R&B smash "I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby" and his own standouts, "Back My Yesterday" and "I've Found Someone," White took the Four Tops' "Standing in the Shadows of Love" and turned it into a veritable opus. With swirling strings, arrangements courtesy of Gene Page, and his own Love Unlimited vocal trio providing back up, White's first album was just a taste of what was to come. --David Nathan

Stellar Debut
Sean Zimmerman | 02/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Barry's first (and best) album is utterly fantastic from start to finish. Every track is a classic. I was skeptical of the opening track being a cover (Standing in the Shadows of Love), but was utterly blown away by his smoking rendition. Eight minutes of pure emotion that far surpasses the original. The album's most popular track is of course I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby, a complete funk classic. My favorite on the album is probably the beautiful title track (though it is hard to choose). Bring Back My Yesterday and I've Found Someone are likewise thoroughly excellent. This is one of the strongest debut albums I have ever heard and my expectations were shattered upon hearing it. One of the best soul/funk albums ever recorded, hopefully it will be back in print soon."
