Great up-tempo cut that has a rougher sound than the group's usual silky Soul harmonies, on this B side to Star On A TV Show which was The Stylistics eighth British chart success. The groups first recording Your A Big Girl Now, for the small Sebring label in 1970, was picked up by Avco in the US that same year and became a chart success the following year. The group, Russell Thompkins, Jr, Airrion Love, James Smith, Herbert Murrell and James Dunn, were all from Philadelphia and under the stewardship of Thom Bell and Linda Creed helped to establish the pre-eminence of that city for Soul, which became known throughout the Western world as 'The Philliy Sound'
