Love Unlimited

Love Unlimited was an American soul trio from Los Angeles comprised of sisters Glodean and Linda James along with their cousin Diane Taylor. They released a self-titled album on Uni Records in 1972, followed by two albums on 20th Century in 1973/74 and a second pair of titles on Unlimited Gold between 1977 and 1979. The last of those labels was established by the group’s producer/writer/arranger/Svengali Barry White, who also enlisted the trio’s services on the 1974 Together Brothers soundtrack along with instrumental backing by his namesake Love Unlimited Orchestra.

Members: Glodean James [Glodean White] (vocals), Linda James (vocals), Diane Taylor (vocals)

Love Unlimited started in 1969 when sisters Glodean and Linda James, both newcomers, formed a singing trio with their cousin Diane Taylor, who’d cut a string of mid-’60s singles with New Jersey soulsters The Jellybeans. They were soon discovered by musician/producer Barry White, who helped them hone their act and secure a deal with MCA-subsidiary UNI.
