Love Unlimited - From A Girl's Point Of View We Give You...
Another poor-quality cover picture. Sorry. Anyway, as requested, here's the first Love Unlimited album from 1972 and marking the breakthrough of Barry White as a musical force to be reckoned with! Oddly, my vinyl of this album is entitled 'Walking In The Rain With The One I Love' by Barry White presents Love Unlimited and appears to be a German pressing on MCA Coral. I don't know whether it's a poor pressing or a worn LP, but the quality could be better. I've done my best with it - see what you think. The album is something of a love concept album with lots of spoken musings on love by one of the ladies (Glodean?) and by Barry himself. 'Are You Sure' was written by Love Unlimited themselves and they also cover Marvin Gaye's 'If This World Was Mine' and the Gamble/Huff composition 'Together'. Of course, the song everyone remembers is 'Walking In The Rain With The One I Love', with its famous telephone conversation..."Oh YES. It was so beautiful."
