This Ohio pop-R&B band were successful throughout most of the 1980s with a succession of P-Funk influenced hits, the most notable from this 1980 set being the vintage funk jam of the title track. The outfit also displays its smoother, more sophisticated side on cuts like the gospel-inflected "I Need You" and the irresistible "I Love Everything You Do," the latter of which combines the best of such romantic R&B masters as the Moments and Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
