Barry White - Voice Your Choice

The multi-talented Barry White is presented on Voice Your Choice. He was a soul singer, a songwriter, keyboardist, as well as an arranger and producer. One of Barry's early hits as a producer and arranger was recorded by future wife, Felice Taylor, when he produced It May Be Winter Outside But In My Heart It's Spring.

I had the pleasure of meeting Barry when I was Vice-President of Artist & Repertoire with A&M Records. He was so warm and friendly, and yet a real big star. A pleasure to meet him.

His debut single achieved Gold Record status and Top Five on the charts. What a debut! He eventually hit the charts an impressive 18 times, including 6 Top Ten hits and an amazing 7 Gold Records! So very impressive.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Barry White with Never, Never Gonna Give You Up  and I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby, both Top Ten and both Gold Records. Cast your vote for whichever song you'd like me to play at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
