Featuring harmony vocals, and a solo line at a key point in the song's third verse by session vocalist Janie Fricke, "Thinkin' of a Rendezvous" became Duncan's first No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in December 1976. A two-week run atop the country chart was part of a 13-week stay in the country chart's top 40.
The song — about a family man who meets up with a woman, a long-time friend with whom he had a secret affair a year earlier — was the first of two Duncan-Fricke duet to top the charts. The follow-up song, "It Couldn't Have Been Any Better," went No. 1 in April 1977, and the two enjoyed several other duet hits, most notably "Stranger" (written by Kris Kristofferson, and a hit in July 1976) and "Come a Little Bit Closer" in January 1978 (a cover of the Jay and the Americans).
