  • 2 questions for the gurus

    1. a question from a mate: "heard a tune last night sounded 70s early 80s soul funk... lyrics/chorus was something like 'ease out'... sounded a bit along the lines of crown heights affair's 'far out' track"

    any ideas?

    2. can anyone recommend any killer barry white tunes where he sings, looking for tight beats, something really tasty but something that's not well known?

    thanks in advance!

    Playing Your Game Baby is about the best B.White tune if I remember. Hip Hop sample, good un.

      Wotcha Boney ! Good to meet ya the other night

      Apart from "Playing your game" which as you said has been copped and is pretty much his No.1 "rare groove" -

      "Ghetto Letto" has got a good groove but again is pretty well known isn't it ? I think all the bazza stuff is pretty common. I've an LP of early stuff that has a much more gritty sound but is lacking in mastering/production quality.

        Personally, I think most of his best productions were with Love Unlimited Orchestra and, of them, Midnight Groove is fantastic, but it's an instrumental not a vocal.

            Also check the stuff BW produced and arranged for Gene Page. Satin Soul for example is a nice little groover.

            Yeah!

              I always liked 'Early Years' off the 'BW - The Man' LP. Quite slow and low, but a good tune. And it's got the usual Bazza, "Hey baby, let me roll ya over, I brought a tub of St Ivel Gold with me." spoken intro.
