|The Jackson 5 singles chronology|
Released in Late 1974 as a single, it was one of the group's album-oriented efforts as the song went beyond the usual minute limit of a pop song, peaking at around 7 minutes and 30 seconds. The song was part-soul ballad (led by Jermaine) and part-funk/rock dance anthem (led mostly by Michael).
After the song's success, the group would release their last Motown album, Moving Violation, before leaving the label for good in 1976.
It charted at no.3 on the R&B singles chart and no.15 on the Hot 100 in the US, but wasn't a hit in the UK.
It was performed by the Jackson 5 on The Cher Show in 1975, and by the Jacksons on their TV series in 1977.
A live performance by the Jacksons, at a concert in Mexico in Late 1975, was included on the home video, The Jacksons In Concert, released in 1981 in the UK (no USA release).
