The Right Night & Barry White is the self-produced sixteenth album by AmericanR&B singer Barry White, which was released in 1987 on A&M Records. This was White's first album for A&M, with which he had signed after a four-year break from recording following a largely unsuccessful venture with his own CBS-affiliated custom label Unlimited Gold, which released six albums released between 1979 and 1983, none of which made more than a very moderate chart impact.
With its mixture of monologue-interspersed ballads and uptempo tracks with a Latin feel, The Right Night & Barry White did not stray far from White's familiar sound. Critical opinion suggested that this kind of R&B was simply not in vogue in 1987 and that while the album would sell to hardcore White fans, it was unlikely to reach a significant new audience. This indeed proved to be the case, as the album was another commercial disappointment for White, peaking at #28 on the R&B chart and failing to reach the top 100 on the pop chart. Lead single "Sho' You Right" made #17 on the R&B chart and gave White his first UK top 20 hit since 1978.
