Five songs on the album were written or co-written by Dallas Frazier, including "Thank You for Lovin' Me," "I Know You're Loving Me," and the title track. The album was originally released on a 12-inch LP album, with five songs on each side of the record. The album has not been re-released on compact disc since its original release on vinyl under RCA Victor. [1]
