Barry White box set

Soul giant Barry White will have his nine original albums for 20th Century Records reissued as remastered 9CD and 9LP, 180-gram vinyl box sets by Mercury/UMe on 26 October. Barry White: The 20th Century Records Albums (1973-1979) will be released worldwide in the box set collections and, on the same day, as individual 180-gram LP packages. The albums have all long been out of print as vinyl discs,and will come with sleeve and label artwork faithfully reproduced from the originals.

I’ve Got So Much To GiveThe new initiative comes 45 years after the release of White’s debut solo album, I’ve Got So Much To Give, and follows the release of two retrospectives in April. That debut set contained the chart-topping ‘I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby’ and was itself an R&B No. 1. Stone Gon’ followed just seven months later, repeating the No. 1 R&B achievement and containing two top ten soul hits.

Can’t Get Enough followed in the summer of 1974, topping both the pop and soul charts and featuring the signature ‘Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe’ and ‘You’re the First, the Last, My Everything.’ Just Another Way To Say I Love You was White’s fourth solo album and kept his run of major singles going with ‘What Am I Gonna Do with You’ and ‘I’ll Do For You Anything You Want Me To.’

Let The Music Play Early in 1976, Let The Music Play included such White trademarks as the title track and ‘You See the Trouble with Me.’ His sixth album Is This Whatcha Wont? came late that year  and offered further hits in ‘Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long’ and ‘I’m Qualified to Satisfy You.’ 1977’s Sings For Someone You Love was another R&B No. 1, featuring ‘It’s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next to Me’ and other singles.

The Man arrived in October 1978 on the renamed 20th Century-Fox Records label, delivering his sixth No. 1 album and  the  lead single ‘Your Sweetness Is My Weakness’ and Barry’s much-loved cover of Billy Joel’s ‘Just the Way You Are.’ His final 20th Century release was 1979’s I Love To Sing The Songs I Sing,  after which his new material appeared on his own Unlimited Gold imprint.

Barry White: The 20th Century Records Albums (1973-1979) is released on 26 October. Scroll down to see the tracklisting and buy it here.

    First Barry White single I bought was You See The Trouble With Me, now I have all those earlier albums, I love me a bit of Bazza when I’m in the mood.
