Edwin Starr marked time with this late-'70s release. He hadn't become acclimated to disco, and wasn't really getting first-rate soul and R&B songs either, so he tried to slip between the cracks and revamp himself into a modified supper-club and light soul vocalist.

Born: January 21, 1942 in Nashville, TN

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s
