Re-release
In 2001, Motown Records remastered all J5 albums in a “Two Classic Albums/One CD” series (much like they did in the late 1980s). This album was paired up with Goin’ Back to Indiana. The bonus tracks were “Love Song”, the B-side of this album’s title track single, and a live performance of “Who’s Lovin’ You”, which first appeared on the soundtrack of the 1992 TV movie The Jacksons: An American Dream.
