Tracy / It Hurts Me
Barry White first appeared on vinyl in 1961 on the song “Boo-Hoo-Hoo”, as part of the Atlantics, alongside Delbert Franklin, Chick Carlton and Gaynel Hodge. The record was released on Eddie Davis’ Linda Records and later covered by female vocal group The Sa-Shays.
The Atlantics would go on to record “Remember The Night” / “Flame Of Love” in ’62’, with a revised line-up. In 1963 “Flame Of Love” was reissued coupled with “Tracy” credited to Barry White and The Atlantics, White’s first lead credit. When White left the group to pursue a solo career the remaining band members formed The Rivingtons.
