Album Review

The press may have dubbed Barry White "the walrus of love," but he was certainly the guru of something for many star crossed lovers across his Love Unlimited Orchestra output. While White rocketed up the charts with his solo "I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little Bit More" in 1973, it was that same year's smash single "Love's Theme" that shot Love Unlimited Orchestra right up alongside him. Mostly instrumental, all orchestral, and packed with "that" tchka tchka guitar and full-fledged disco sound well before the genre reached maturity, Rhapsody in White set the stage and showcased the sounds that would shortly inspire a generation of producers, arrangers, and performers to start a million mirror balls spinning the world over. This album, in all its admitted smarminess, is a triumph. From the opening bars of "Barry's Theme," Rhapsody in White unleashes a groove which really keeps it all mellow. And even though we have to listen through three tracks to first hear White's trademarked vocal come-on on "Midnight and You" it's well worth the wait. He gets a little more vocal on side two, across "Don't Take It All Away" and again at the beginning of "Baby Blues," which has shag rug in front of a fireplace written all over its arrangement. But the masterful finale, of course, is "Love's Theme." The song's lush strings and smooth wah-wah guitars not only typified a genre, they also became an aural catchphrase for an entire generation of clubbers. And because this is, underneath it all, a Barry White album, the teaser for the nightcap is delicious.

Great music.

This is definetly "a must have".


this is good album, people should give it a chance

The Amorous Apex of A Brilliant Career...

Chilled champagne...strawberries and cream...a roaring fireplace...the decadent feel of dark, purple satin sheets...Even if you had not a single one of those things at your disposal, only one album can make you feel like you do, even if the place where you are with your "intended" happens to be the local EconoLodge, and this is it. Whether you're trying to make a baby or make YOUR baby, Barry was and is the man to put the "Afro" in "aphrodisiac." Not a single cut on this album rings false in its commitment to help millions of couples of every stripe get their freak on, and it remains timeless in that respect, reaching the pinnacle of what can best be described as an "orchestral orgasm" with the final cut, the chart-busting instrumental smash, "Love's Theme." An album so potent, it should've been packaged with its own "Do Not Disturb" sign when it was first released. And probably still should be. The Walrus Of Love is gone, but his legacy remains, and countless numbers of kids over the span of over three decades have him to thank for "inspiring" their parents on at least one special night...

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.
