Friday Morning Music Video

Up your volume a bit.

"You're the First, the Last, My Everything" by Barry White, from 1974's Can't Get Enough.

Various bios and articles on Barry note he smoked between 7-8 packs of cigarettes/day. Man...I give him nothing but Props for that.  IMHO, one of the Top Ten greatest voices to grace the music industry. He totally owned the deep bass-baritone voice.

An interesting life. White began serving his first jail sentence at age 16 for stealing $30K of Cadillac tires. He had fathered two children by age 16. He did not know how to read or write music. Turned his life around after release from jail.

Source: ...the BBC recalled "the rich timbres of one of the most distinctive soul voices of his generation, about which it was once said: 'If chocolate fudge cake could sing, it would sound like Barry White.'"
