I have to second the fact that Barry White is the face of disco. It has to be, who else? He took it from it's infancy, shaped it, and showed us all that it was alright to tell your woman that you love her and want to make love! I personally loved them all, but if forced to pick one, IT'S ECSTASY WHEN YOU LAY DOWN NEXT TO ME!

"I'M GONNA LOVE YOU JUST A LITTLE MORE BABY"
is my fav Barry White song followed by the 2 mentioned above:
"CAN'T GET ENOUGH" & "ECSTASY"
Special mention for: "HONEY PLEASE CAN'T YOU SEE"

Also special kudos for his productions with other srtists:
"MY SWEET SUMMER SUITE" - Love Unlimited Orch - 12" mix
"JUST AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER" - Gloria Scott

Barry was HOT especially between '73-'78.

Mr. Barry White WAS Mr. Disco, his songs, his orchestrations, his warm voice, everything fits. So many beautiful tracks, such an enormous collection of Music!

Well, I'm going for these two:

"Love Serenade"

and

Love Unlimited Orchestra's "Strange Games & Things", although I have to look up if this track is composed by Barry.

Damn Pete...again a very hard question ! I think it depends on my mood. I know it's not really a Barry White song, but I do like his version of "Just the way you are", written by Billy Joel.

- you see the trouble with me
- can't get enough of your love, babe
- first, last, my everything,
- I'll do for you anything..
- good sex song : it's xtc when you lay down wext to me

- this can go on and on and on...

got a dvd from a gig in Germany when he's performing in 76 or 77... I do know why he's called the Spermwhale of Love...

You cracked me up. That was funny. I am extremely happy to tell you, that you just won me over. I like you, and the posts you put up constantly are a welcome thing to this site. Now, as for Barry White and Pete! Back, many moons ago, when I hung out with Pete at Club MYSTIQUE, he rarely played Barry in the club. But in his apartment, that was all he played(and an occasional KID CREOLE). He has every Barry Record ever made, and he used them to their fullest, if you catch my meaning. But...that was many moons ago, and for chubby Pete, many pounds ago!! LOL

PETE'S NOTE:: Funny! Real funny!

He sold more than 200.000.000 records :shock: worldwide in his career.It's incredible but true!!!
These are selling numbers for artists like Elvis or Beatles,but Barry was top:Performer,writer and producer.We are very lucky to enjoy a talent like Him :D

I knew Barry very well when I was his booking agent, back in 92 when Hurricane Andrew was going to hit Miami,Barry called me up and and said " Hey kid want me to fly you outta that shit hole to my villa in Costa Rica? "

I declined to stay with the family, man I wish I would of accepted his offer!

Most dont know this, but Barry made Miami his home for the most part of the year,his house was just across the street from the Ventian Pool in Coral Gables.

He LOVED Cuban women and hired an all white staff to tend to his home.

When asked about the white staff he told me he hired an all white staff as a means of payback to the Honkies!

To quote him " Crackers gotta wash my underwear now "

Barry IS the face of Disco, his arrangements are some of the best and lets not talk about his ability to write a song!

And to think, that Barry never wanted to be a performer,he just wanted to write and produce.

Glad he became a performer!

Now then, Barry did drop those lets make love melodies on us all,but it was Teddy Pendergrass who dropped those " lets straight up and fuck " songs!
