Barry White - You Are The First, My Last, My Everything

A conversation with the wonderful Jane out on the terrace at the Grand Hotel in Għajnsielem, Gozo, Malta in 2019 about my late Uncle Ron, somehow led to the music of Barry White. Ron, who was actually my mum’s cousin, sadly passed away in 2000. I was gutted. We were a small family and he was always someone I had idolised ever since I was a kid. He was a big man with a deep voice, hence the black and white comparison. Barry White’s ‘You Are The First, My Last, My Everything’, not only reminds me of Ron, it reminds me of that beautiful evening, in brilliant company, whilst on holiday in the Mediterranean.
