On "Let the Music Play," the late great Barry White's improbably successful mix of symphonic soul hums along like a well-oiled machine. The big difference here is that White is possessed of the kind of heartache that no amount of pillow talk will soothe. The sadness and despair on "Let The Music Play" are palpable; the theme of love gone sour threads through every song on the album. The title cut, for instance, finds the hero enroute to a nightclub, frantically trying to ease the pain of a troubled home life. The music is as cheerfully romantic and bouncy as "Love's Theme," White's no. 1 instrumental smash with the Love Unlimited Orchestra, but this time the words and White's delivery speak of loneliness, desperation and futility. Elsewhere, White has never sounded so despondent as on "I'm so Blue, And You are too," which is perhaps his most convincing and best-written opus: it's the anguished cry of a man who holds onto a glimmer of hope, even as he concedes that his relationship is over. Throughout his career, White was often pilloried for his triteness and borderline vulgarity (not to mention his physical size), which often made him an easy target for parody. But the depth of feeling on "Let the Music Play" effectively succeeds in laying to rest any doubts about his enormously innovative musicality, his vision and talent. "Let the Music Play" is quite an impressive fall from the lovesick musings of "Never Gonna Give You Up"

BW Lovers !

The MM Throwback remix is awesome !
Up until now I thought it can't get any better, but it did.
'Let the music play' has been my favorite BW song for many years, but this excellent over 9 minutes long remix tops it all.
This tune alone is worth the whole album price.
Get it and get grooving........

This album is a great piece of work. Barry captured the real atmosfere of love and passion to do this long play.
Everything is there: violins, deep voice, backing vocals, the arrangements and the Barry's stile.
Great album!!!

This was SUCH a very nice surprise from The Maestro himself!
As another reviewer had said, you can actually FEEL the heartache and heartbreak in this recording! And, the variations of the title song are NOT to be believed! In ADDITION Love Unlimited themselves doing the background vocals adds such SPICE to the overall recording of the CD.

A MUST HAVE for any and ALL of the Barry White, Love Unlimited and the Love Unlimited Orchestra fans and aficionados!

I just don't get it with all the technology man has now we can't get a simple Analog to Digital transfer right.
If they don't have a great source tape then leave it alone with dignity.
This sounds like they took the last exact CD release and just made it louder making it sound worse.
As far as the remixes go they are really bad it sounds like Barry did some bad crack from beyond.
I don't know if the original master tape even exits anymore if it does I'm hoping someone does it right. The original LP sounded better than the last two CD releases what a shame.

Barry White is One of my all time favorite Artists. His arrangements, vocal stylings, songwriting,Production all come together and are united as one on this album. the way he brings a Groove and just has that straight up vibe you can never front on what Barry brought to the table. those strings are timeless. this is a Must have in the Barry White Catelog. another of many highly enjoyable albums.

Beware - although the listing shows the following tracks:

1. I Don't Know Where Love Has Gone
2. If You Know, Won't You Tell Me
3. I'm So Blue and You Are Too
4. Baby, We Better Try to Get It Together
5. You See the Trouble With Me
6. Let the Music Play

This is actually a compilation CD. I've gotten burned by this mis-lead!
The actual listing for this import:

01. You're the first, the last, my everything (04:34)
02. Never gonna Give You Up (04:48)
03. Can't get enough of your love baby (04:30)
04. Come on in Love (03:46)
05. Love Theme (04:08)
06. Honey please can't you see (03:13)
07. I'm gonna love you just a little (04:12)
08. I found someone (03:40)
09. I've got so much to give (03:08)
10. Let the music play (03:32)
11. What am I gonna do with you (03:42)
12. Love Serenade (07:05)

No wonder the pricing is between ($5/US to $15/US). I'm going to petition
Amazon to fix this...inaccuracy. My recommendation if you want the actual Album/CD is to contact the seller first for the track listing. Else you may end up like me...

Good luck!

I rate the Barry White's music 5 stars (as always)...0 stars for the inaccurate track listing!!
