Love Unlimited – If You Want Me, Say It

‘If You Want Me, Say It‘ is one of the best R&B songs ever! The Love Unlimited Orchestra are a blessing and the corner stone of R&B! The vocals and harmonies are inspirational, sophisticated and timeless. This track was produced by the genius The Late Great Barry White RIP!

The trumpets, strings and base guitar make you fall in love with the message of this song. Never will we ever be graced with a combination of talent or original ideas which where around in 1979. Please listen and enjoy. Your comments on this track and old school R&B will also be appreciated, in the comments section.

Tamar Braxton’s  husband Vincent Herbert also produced the original 1997 version of the song which did pretty well on the slow down charts.
