Overview

Unlike his other greatest hits' packages -- the 12-song Back to Back: Greatest Hits and the 20-song All Time Greatest Hits -- Barry White's The Ulitmate Collection won't leave you longing for more. This 30-song double disc is sure to satisfy even the Love Don's fussiest fans, with the inclusion of lighthearted, reverential classics such as "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" and "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" alongside the more explicit boudoir favorites the baritone is infamous for -- such as the bass-heavy "It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next to Me" and the hypnotic "I'm Gonna Love You, Just a Little More Baby." The seductive mix also spotlights some of White's more recent hits, including "Staying Power," the title track from his last album, and the 1994 comeback smash "Practice What You Preach." If this collection sounds like the most pleasurable tour through White's music, then as the Sultan of Sensuality would say, sho' you right.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The Ultimate Collection gathers two discs' worth of Barry White's greatest hits and definitive tracks, as selected by White himself. Along with the title track from his 1999 album Staying Power, the set collects '70s hits like "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," and "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up" and highlights of his work with the Love Unlimited Orchestra such as "My Sweet Summer Suite," "Midnight and You," and "Love's Theme." Later tracks like "Sho' You Right," "Put Me in Your Mix," and "Practice What You Preach" round out this worthwhile overview of White's career highlights.
