Just as this months page was being put to bed the sad news came through of the death of the great Barry White. It seems these days that our musical hero�s are dying all too frequently and in the case of Barry White he really was one of the all time hero�s of seductive soul. He is worth a special tribute here because it was his hallmark monologue on the introduction to the Quincy Jones epic �The Secret Garden� that spawned the idea for the name of this page. In addition it was the mood of the man that inspired the idea of the regular feature, Smooth Soul Survivors. One thing that is certain is that the music of Barry White is set to survive for a very long time.
