Originally released in 1976, loverman/maestro Barry White’s sixth album — despite including three monster hit singles, including the title song, “You See The Trouble With Me” and “Baby, We Better Try To Get It Together” — somehow had gone out of print. That is, before this new reissue from Hip-O Select, due on February 14. In other words, just in the nick of time! A highlight of the new liner notes are thoughts from Jack Perry, Barry White’s musical director. But this expanded edition also includes not one, not two, not five, but six — yes, six! — different mixes of “Let the Music Play.” That includes the album version, the single version and (maybe most interesting of all) “Funkstar’s Club Deluxe Mix.”
‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
