Mercury/UMeContinuing the 45th anniversary celebration of Barry White‘s first release on 20th Century Records, an expansive box set gathering all of the albums the late soul legend put out on the label will hit stores on October 26.
Barry White: The 20th Century Records Albums (1973-1979) will be available as a nine-CD box set and a nine-LP 180-gram vinyl package.
The 20th Century Records Albums collection spans from White’s 1973 solo debut, I’ve Got So Much to Give, through his 1979 record I Love to Sing the Songs I Sing. The collection also includes the deep-voiced crooner’s 1974 chart-topping release Can’t Get Enough and his platinum-selling records Barry White Sings for Someone You Love and The Man, from, respectively, 1977 and ’78.
