On the heels of To the Max , Con Funk Shun returned to the top of the charts with the Top Ten R&B single "Baby I'm Hooked (Right Into Your Love)." Written by group member Cedric Martin and Van Ross Redding, the song was compassionately sung by Felton Pilate. Another R&B Top 40 hit, "Don't Let Your Love (Grow Cold)," wasn't as funky as some of Con Funk Shun's past singles, but was still very danceable. This album was the first noticeable signal that the group's interest in the industry was beginning to decline, probably for a number of reasons: their 15-year history together, contractual problems with their record label, and also the emergence of rap/hip-hop. Their songs were less involved, and the group picture was taken from the previous album.
