By the time he hit his stride in 1974 with 'Can't Get Enough', Barry White had firmly established his vocal persona on the contemporary music scene. This is the third in his stellar run of album successes. The album topped the Billboard 200 and R&B charts and peaked at #4 in the UK.
Barry White's allure lay in his ability to craft beautiful love songs and embellish them with luxurious strings, a great rhythm section, and a gospel-styled female chorus. The combination is never more evident than on the classic title track as well as the song “You're My First, My Last, My Everything”, an anthem that appealed to White's pop audience. Both of these up-tempo #1 chart-topping tracks were early echoes of the danceable, orchestrated funk stylings that became the sound of the disco era.
In addition to the hits, “I Can't Believe You Love Me” and “Oh Love, Well We Finally Made It” qualify as two of White's most fetching slow burners. The album is bordered by “Mellow Mood (Pts. 1 & 2)”, two brief orchestral instrumentals that showcase White's knack for layered arrangements.
