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 Get It Together. The bonus tracks were the outtakes “Pride and Joy”, “Love’s Gone Bad” and “Love Is the Thing You Need”. Each of these tracks also appear on the compilation album Joyful Jukebox Music/Boogie.
