Very little to chew on regarding The Love Unlimited Orchestra. If not that it was created by the enormously - literally and figuratively - Barry White.
And that this formation, bordering on a symphony orchestra, will mainly serve as a musical support for the works of Barry White and the female trio he also creates, namely Love Unlimited.
The group will mainly leave in history the masterly and sumptuous "Love's theme", which remains to this day one of the most famous instrumental pieces of the 1970s, and of the end of the twentieth century itself.
To discover or rediscover.

1973 ... which will undoubtedly remain as one of the most famous instrumental pieces of the decade and of the end of the 20th century. The best of the sound of the 70s carried by an amazing melody. Perfection. MO-NU-MEN-TAL !
1973 ... an amazing sung version of the Love's Theme that is definitely worth a visit. Certainly, it cannot equal the previous version but it gives a different vision
1974 ... after the planetary tidal wave of Love's Theme, here comes a very nice sequel. A suite in the same style that will also tour the world
1975 ... always in a unique and recognizable 70's style, the group continues to deliver high caliber pieces. A dynamic that does not weaken ...
1975 ... another highly inspired melody, a constant in this beautiful adventure decidedly unique in its kind
1975 ... a BIG year 1975 with no less than 3 major titles. A concept that knows how to last !
1976 ... a year 1976 much less prolific but it is better to have the quality than the quantity sometimes. We will largely be satisfied with it !
1977 ... the last notorious hit. The concept seems to be running out of steam. With the massive arrival of the Disco wave, it's hard to resist ...
1980 ... a mixture of various influences which gives this astonishing piece. A song sung, that changes ...
1981 ... a Dance song that works very well and perfectly in accordance with the standards of the new decade. Good job !
1981 ... the very last hit. A concept that lasts, that lasts, that lasts. You would have thought he would disappear as quickly as he appeared. Oh no !
1982 ... a linear evolution over the years. Well, there is still a moment when history will catch up with them, or rather the competition !
1983 ... this time, it's definitely the end. My faith, an adventure which will have lasted almost ten years. For the instrumental, it's a real feat !
