Album Review

Even though the Love Unlimited Orchestra was originally assembled to provide instrumentation for Barry White's Love Unlimited side project, the band was a heavy chart hitter for four years. White Gold is the band's third 1974 release and, though it cannot eclipse their debut, Rhapsody in White, still it would take them through the beginning of 1976. White pulls out the tried-and-true formula across this album, which is loaded with the expected orchestral numbers — heavy on the strings, of course, and interspersed with White's own vocal nuggets. The problem is, however, how many times can this really play out? Rhapsody in White remains the quintessential Unlimited sound and everything after that is just cream cheese filler. But if that's what the masses want.... "Satin Soul" was the only track to flip off the album and onto the singles chart, and it is relatively sweet, but the real gem in this album comes one track later. "Always Thinking of You," penned by Ray Parker, Jr., is a much stronger song. It's rich, full of life, and has a great groove. One other track worth spinning is the horn-driven and funkified "You Make Me Feel Like This (When You Touch Me)." The rest of the album, unfortunately, is a throwaway. But still it cannot be denied; at the end of the party, no matter how good or bad, Love Unlimited Orchestra provided a sound that was integral to the decade and a service to purveyors of shag carpets and crackling fireplaces everywhere.

love unlimited orchestra white gold

they call barry white the man with the golden voice, THEY WERE CORRECT in that title.


Every track is solid. This should be in your collection. You will want to listen to it often.

Bobby Bee on the White Gold lp.....

Au' contraire! au' contraire!! Who reviews this stuff for Itunes anyway??!! This Orchestra lp is, to me, the SEXIEST of the Orchestra releases until they made My musical Bouquet ( I told you, I own them all)!!! "Spanish Lei", both "Barry's Love"s and "Always Thinking of You" are romantic as hell and "Just Living it Up" puts you in the mind of "Theme From A Summer Place" Ok? It's Just that = Barry 'White Gold'!!

The longtime support unit for R&B love man Barry White, the 40-piece Love Unlimited Orchestra's lush, string-laden sound helped set the stage for the emergence of disco. The ensemble was originally formed by White to back his female protégés, Love Unlimited, beginning with their 1972 debut LP; the orchestra soon began supporting White himself as well, and in 1974 they issued their first LP Rhapsody in White, scoring a hit with the single "Love Theme."
