THE VAULTS / CD REISSUES

Love Unlimited Orchestra, "The Best of Love Unlimited Orchestra," Mercury. ** 1/2

June 23, 1995|Dennis Hunt

Popular in the mid-'70s, the symphonic soul sound of the orchestra--led by soul crooner Barry White--basically consists of guitars and a string-heavy orchestra playing lush, romantic melodies over punchy R&B rhythms. The formula clicks on half these instrumentals, particularly on the hit single "Love's Theme." But the rest sounds like funky elevator music.
