Former Fifth Dimension members Marilyn McCo and Billy Davis, Jr. hit gold the first time out. Produced by Don Davis (Johnnie Taylor, The Dramatics), the charming million-selling single "You Don't Have to Be a Star (To Be in My Show)" went to number one on Billboard's R&B and pop charts in 1976. Other highlights from their debut LP include the upbeat followup single, "Your Love," and the languid title track. The couple performed some of the songs on their CBS summer variety series. In 1999, they appeared on the cover of Jet Magazine and on a segment of Jamie Foxx's WB sitcom. I Hope We Get to Love in Time was reissued as a 1996 Razor & Tie CD. Eleven years later, Collectors Choice reissued the album once again.
