  Gloria Scott 

Click below for a Gloria Scott sample: 

A Case Of Too Much Lovemakin'


Gloria Scott was part of Barry White’s attempt to construct an empire of  his own that included Love Unlimited, West Wing, Love Unlimited Orchestra, and Tom Brock. 

The former Ikette was hooked up with White through her manager, who agreed to produce  her.  1974’s What Am I Gonna Do was one of Casablanca’s earliest attempts to address the soul market and Scott may have been a casualty of their lack of experience in album promotion, because it did not sell well despite a top 20 single in the title cut. 

Scott soon disappeared from the scene, but was vindicated when the record went on to fame as an essential rare groove platter, highlighted by the title song, "Too Much Lovemakin’," and "I Think Of You."
