Love Unlimited Orchestra - My Sweet Summer Suite 180g Vinyl LP
Love Unlimited Orchestra My Sweet Summer Suite 180g Vinyl LP
Music legend Barry White released his first solo album with 20th Century Records in 1973. His string of hugely successful singles and albums established him as music's leading pioneer of orchestral soul, a genre that became a staple in the 1970s and beyond. Backing his work throughout his seven years with the label was Love Unlimited Orchestra, a 40-piece ensemble conducted by White himself. Their biggest single, 1973's "Love's Theme," went to No. 1 in the U.S. and No. 10 in the U.K. White also produced releases for the label by the female vocal trio, Love Unlimited, whose 1975 single "I Belong To You" hit No. 1 on Billboard's R&B singles chart.
Mercury/UMe offers new vinyl LP reissues of three of Love Unlimited Orchestra's albums (Rhapsody In White, White Gold and My Sweet Summer Suite), plus two albums by Love Unlimited (From A Girl's Point Of View We Give To You... Love Unlimited and In Heat). The five vinyl LPs were cut at Abbey Road Studios and pressed on high quality 180-gram vinyl to guarantee optimal audio quality.
All of the albums are presented with their original sleeve and label art. Mercury/UMe's Barry White / 20th Century Records reissue program was launched in 2018 with box set releases of White's remastered solo albums and singles from his tenure with the label. 15 years since his untimely death in 2003 at the age of 58, the global campaign honors Barry White's legendary career by restoring these classic albums and presenting them together.
My Sweet Summer Suite is Love Unlimited Orchestra's fifth LP, released in 1976, the same year that Barry White released his seminal Let The Music Play LP. The album's title song was a No. 1 Dance Chart smash, while its new pressing features the original long version of "Strange Games & Things," a track which has become a cult favorite for hip-hop fans and producers.
