The Best of Our Love [Love Unlimited, 1980]
I know you don't think he's good for anything but excess anyway, but if you'll allow me to get technical for a moment, there's good Barry White and bad Barry White. all the good Barry White any normal person needs is on his 1975 Greatest Hits for 20th Century, which this CBS-distributed two-disc compilation had better not displace in the racks. White's half begins with "I Love to Sing the Songs I Sing," its cannily repeated verb an excellent definition of bad Barry White, and ends with "Just the Way You Are," which he, well, sings. There's also a side of Love Unlimited that leaves their only good album untouched. And a side of the Love Unlimited Orchestra, Barry's Jackie Gleason tribute band. C
