Say the name Barry White and you’d be hard pressed to follow it with the name of any other recording artist with such a huge, cross-sectional following. He was at home appearing on Soul Train, guesting with a full band on The Today Show, and appearing in cartoon form in various episodes of The Simpsons. During the ’70s, Dinah Shore devoted a full hour of her daily syndicated Dinah! show to White . While there was a period where Barry White wasn’t releasing records or making the pop charts, he did stay active touring and appearing on other artists’ records including Quincy Jones ’ “The Secret Garden (The Seduction Suite),” Regina Belle , and rap star Big Daddy Kane ’s “All of Me.” It’s surprising to find out that such an illustrious career almost didn’t happen because White wasn’t interested in being a recording artist. Born in Galveston, TX, Barry White grew up singing gospel songs with his mother and taught himself to play piano. Shortly after moving from Texas to South Central Los Angeles, White made his recording debut at the tender age of 11, playing piano on Jesse Belvin ’s “Goodnight My Love.”

Appearing with White on the recording session for the song were guitarists Ray Parker Jr., Wah Wah Watson, Dean Parks, and David T. Walker; drummer Ed Greene; bassists Wilton Felder of the Crusaders and Nathan East; and vibes player Gary Coleman.

Barry White - Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe (1974)

Barry White - Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe (1974)
"Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" is a song written, recorded, and produced by Barry White. Released as the first single from his album Can't Get Enough in 1974, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 and U.S. R&B charts and has since become one of his signature tunes. It was his second U.S. chart-topper, after "Love's Theme".



The song is a pop-soul track with lush string arrangements and a disco-influenced beat behind it. The single differs from the LP version in that White sings solo during the intro whereas on the LP version he performs background vocals. The single is also an edit and is mixed differently.

White performed this song live on The Midnight Special in 1974, and on Soul Train on May 24, 1975.

Barry White - You're The First, The Last, My Everything (1974)

Barry White - You're The First, The Last, My Everything (1974)




"You're the First, the Last, My Everything" or "You're the First, My Last, My Everything" is a popular song recorded by Barry White. Written by White, Tony Sepe and Peter Radcliffe and produced by White, "You're the First, The Last, My Everything" was White's fourth top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, reaching #2; it spent a week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart. The early disco classic made it to number two on the disco/dance charts. In the UK Singles Chart it fared even better, spending two weeks at the top in December 1974. It appeared on White's 1974 album Can't Get Enough.

Radcliffe originally wrote "You're the First, My Last, My Everything" as a country song with the title "You're My First, You're My Last, My In-Between", which went unrecorded for 21 years. White recorded it as a disco song, keeping most of the structure and about two-third of the title, but he rewrote the lyrics.
