Barry White 45 Collectables
BRING BACK MY YESTERDAY – FRANCE AZ 1973
This release couples two songs from the album I've Got So Much to Give, placing the album's title song on the B-side, even though I've Got So Much to Give was a hit A-side in the USA. Bring Back My Yesterday was an A-side in the UK .
DON'T MAKE ME WAIT TOO LONG – FRANCE AZ 1976
I'M GONNA LOVE YOU JUST A LITTLE MORE BABY – FRANCE AZ 1973
Both sides of this single were totally re-edited from the classic I've Got So Much To Give album tracks. Hence, the A-side is a completely different single to that released around the world in 1973. Standing In The Shadows of Love on the B-side, Barry's powerhouse tribute to the Four Tops, makes its first appearance on a Barry White 45.
L.A. MY KIND OF PLACE – FRANCE A. & M 1989
This lively Latin-flavoured ditty gained its only single release in France . The song appeared on ‘The Man Is Back'.
SUPER LOVER – FRANCE A. & M 1990
This French single has the LP version from ‘The Man Is Back', instead of the Funk Version Remix as appeared on the USA single.
YOU'RE THE FIRST, THE LAST MY EVERYTHING – FRANCE AZ 1974
Note the shorter title of the B-side, ‘Can't Get Enough', that was an A-side elsewhere. Unusually for a Barry White single at this time, both sides contain the complete original ‘Can't Get Enough' LP versions.
FOREVER IN LOVE – FRANCE AZ 1975
This picture shows Love Unlimited from their ‘Under the Influence of ..' album sleeve, although this single was from the Orchestra's ‘Music Maestro Please' album, released in 1975. Strangely, this great 45 – the first of Barry's golden period without the input of Gene Page – never appeared in the UK as a single.
THEME FROM KING KONG PARTS I & II – FRANCE AZ 1976
It's probably best to let this bizarre French item speak for itself! The track's composer John Barry was amazed that Barry White had recorded and issued this US hit version [No. 15 R. & B; No. 68 Pop] before the film was even released. The fact that both the movie company and Barry's label were the same - 20 th Century - may have had something to do with it.
IF WE DON'T MAKE IT, NOBODY CAN – FRANCE AZ 1974
This ultra rare 45 (also released in the USA ) is Tom Brock's very rare Vocal version of this identically-titled song usually found in an Instrumental version on Tom's LP/CD I Love You More And More. This Vocal version is otherwise unavailable.
