Danny Pearson - Barry White Presents Mr Danny Pearson


Now here's another entry in the Barry canon. If you look this one up anywhere it claims some silly backstory where young Mr P was camping out outside Barry's offices and was given the opportunity to record this album. Not sure I quite buy that one. Anyway, this album came out in 1978 on White's new Unlimited Gold label. It's interesting to hear the Barry White/Gene Page groove machine with such a different vocalist. The opening track What's Your Sign Girl was the closest the album came to spawning a hit, and while it's a tired concept, it's a lot better than Roberta Kelly's dreadful Zodiacs. Elsewhere, several of Barry's past glories get a good revamping - the Love Unlimited hit Walkin' In The Rain... is joined by new versions of two other of their tracks, Say It Again and Is It Really True, and Barry's own Honey Please Can't You See also gets the revival treatment. Thanks to La Magie De La Funk for this one...

1. What's Your Sign Girl
2. Is It Really True Girl
3. Walkin' In The Rain With The One I Love
4. Let's Go Dancin' (Let's Go Disco Dancin')
5. Honey Please Can't You See
6. Say It Again
7. I'm So Glad I Got You Baby
8. There's No One For Me But You

What's your SIGN?
