While signed to MGM Records through label president Mike Curb, Lou Rawls had a number 17 R&B/pop hit with "Natural Man." When Curb's interests turned to politics, Rawls became disenchanted with MGM, feeling that the label wanted him to make more youth-oriented music. The singer bolted to Larry Uttal's Bell Records. Recording one LP for the label, Rawls seemed to be on the verge of a hit, but lost a cover battle of Hall and Oates' "She's Gone" when Tavares' version topped the charts while Rawls' version stalled at the bottom of the charts. Not long after, the singer signed with Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International Records, distributed by CBS. The songwriting/production duo listened to Rawls' catalog to get a feel for the single before submitting what would become Rawls' signature song. The elegant "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" was recorded live with the singer and the band, no piecemeal overdubbing. Rawls liked to record live and that may be part of the reason that he gives one of his most endearing vocals. The million-selling "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" parked at number one on the R&B charts for two weeks and number two on the pop charts for two weeks in the summer of 1976. All Things in Time also included the double-sided follow-up, "Groovy People"/"This Song Will Last Forever," and the original version of Bunny Sigler's "From Now On," which was a disco hit for Linda Clifford.
