Format: Audio CD
I am eternally grateful to Alley McBeal for introducing the incredible music of Barry White to me. The name has always been familiar to me, but I’m not quite old enough to have been properly exposed to the man’s music. After watching my favorite character John Cage psych himself up with Barry White music each week on television, I knew I had to have a Barry White CD, and it had to feature You’re the First, the Last, My Everything. This All-Time Greatest Hits album, packing twenty hits from 1973-1979 onto one disc, pretty much sells itself. I know there are lengthier collections available now, but this remains the best one-CD ensemble of Barry White staples you will find. I do believe that several of these tracks are somewhat edited from the longer versions featured on the original albums, but I don’t have a problem with this. I wanted an authoritative introduction to the man’s music, and that is exactly what this album delivers. The original, full-length versions of his songs are all out there waiting for me to get around to buying all of his albums.
I really don’t even know where to begin in terms of discussing these 20 tracks; every song on here is incredible. In the liner notes, you can see where each song peaked on the R&B and/or pop charts as well as find out the original album each song was taken from. The songs I am particularly enamored with are I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More, Baby; Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe; You’re the First, the Last, My Everything; Let the Music Play; You See the Trouble With Me; and Your Sweetness Is My Weakness. I might point out that two of these tracks are instrumentals: Love’s Theme (which is instantly recognizable) and Satin Soul.

Like the previous reviewer I, too, grew to be a Barry White fan from enjoying the wonderful Ally McBeal - although I had heard his songs many times before but didn't get to truly engage with them until they were showcased on said programme (am I a marketeer's dream?).

Nope, I'm not a sad old romantic (far from it), proving that there is more to Barry White than a sex soundtrack. These are well-written songs that just scream to be sung and danced to. You may not recognise the titles straight away, but you're bound to recognise the songs, they're all classics. This particular compilation should whet your appetite for a more thorough exploration of Mr White's discography. Laid back, catchy and, yes, like John Cage on Ally McBeal, THEY MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD! Is that a decent enough reason to buy this Barry White compilation? I think so...

Unlike the other reviewers I AM old enough to remember Barry White the first time around though I too enjoyed Ally McBeal.

BW first got into music as a musician & later as a talent spotter for record companies & then moving into the production side.

His first big hit was Love Unlimited's "Walking In The Rain" which featured BW speaking on the telephone to his girl friend.

Right from this early track (which charted in both the UK & the USA in the early 70s) the BW 'sound' could be heard: romantic strings, slushy vocals over a strong rhythm.

This album doesn't stray from the sound at all, all the tracks feature the same kind of voice (bar the 2 instrumentals), similar sounding songs & very similar arrangements.

Highlights for me (as a fan of this music) include "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Babe" which has a very infectious beat as does "You're The First" which is a bit more up-tempo and the lively "What Am I Gonna Do With You".

Other really good tunes include "Let The Music Play" and "I'll Do For You Anything You Want", which again are more up-tempo with a catchy chorus.

Perhaps the most distinctive song on the album is "You See The Trouble With Me", which shows BW injecting a little more obvious 'disco' into his standard sound.

Although very much 'of his time' BW was never held in very high esteem by 'soul' fans who though his music too MOR but now - 30+ years on - they sound fresh & so much more 'real' than today's bland R'n'B.

Put simply, BW could sing!

Like one BW song & you will almost certainly like them all - trouble is if you don't like them all chances are you won't like any!

Easy decision then as to whether to buy this album or not - either 20 tracks of sheer bliss or sheer hell!

Believe it or not, I wasn't able to find all these songs in one CD. Now that I've found them, I keep on listening them all the time.

Personally, I can't distinguish any one of them, just because the're all great.

I just remind to anyone who reads my review that many of these tracks have been used as music cover in films, tv commercials, documentaries etc.

Definitely a must buy, not just for the artist himself, but also for the music style he served for many years with great success.
