Union Jacks is The Babys fourth album, which peaked at number 42 on the Billboard 200 in 1980. The lead single "True Love Confessions" failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, but was succeeded by the minor hit "Midnight Rendezvous" and then the hit single "Back on My Feet Again". It would become the last Babys song to chart, when the band broke up later that year. Union Jacks was reissued on May 26, 2009 under Rock Candy Records after being out of print for many years. There are no bonus tracks, but all of the tracks have been remastered.
