Hip-o Select is about to release some sweet satin soul from the one and only Barry White, with a nicely-expanded release of his 1976 LP Let the Music Play. This remastered and expanded edition of the album features five bonus versions of Let The Music Play, including the Funkstar Deluxe Mix from 2000, the alternate version, both sides of the original single (an edit and an instrumental) and a new mix by longtime Select collaborator John Morales, reimagining the tune as a vintage 12″ single version.

Let the Music Play hit No. 4 on the R&B charts, and it’s been unfairly overlooked as a whole until recently, with the retooling of “Let the Music Play” as a European dancehall cut in 2000 and the discovery of some great alternate material for the song on the great Barry White box set Unlimited in 2009. Let the Music Play will be released on February 14, 2012
