Barry White – I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More

Classics: Barry White – I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby (20th Century Fox)

Has everything been said about the late Barry White? Surely not, considering the fact that there’s always something new to discover whenever coming to listen to his music. Whatever its release date might be. With ‘I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby’ standing as a good illustration to this…

Now, along with time, but also referring to my late brother told me, I guess I have a better understanding of the whole. As to how I keep on discovering things one listen after another. With this comin’ from the fact that Barry White tended to build up things from a so to say instrumental perspective. And this, first and foremost, because he was a composer and an arranger above everything. Thus using his baritone voice as an instrument. Meanwhile considering the lyrics as the icing on the cake, but only as long as he felt like they were necessary.
Besides, let’s not forget, he got his biggest successes back in the 70’s as the conductor of theLove Unlimited Orchestra.

The mellow ‘I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby’ saw the light in the Spring of 1973. And this as the first single from this ‘I’ve Got So Much To Give’ album. It saw him surrounded by luminaries such as Ray Parker, Jr. and Wah Wah Watson on guitar, but also Wilton Felder on bass. This in addition to Gene Page in charge of the arrangements…

Not a ballad no more than an uptempo as a matter of fact… ‘I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby’ was not even a Quiet Storm gem. Which didn’t get it from toppin’ the R&B charts at the time. Then to eventually being certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies. Meanwhile, it’s hard not to see some common truck with ‘Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up’ which followed a couple of months after.

Last but not least and as usual at a time when the 12″ wasn’t around, I would kindly suggest you to go for the album version in order to fully enjoy this masterpiece…
