This is the Intruders' last known recording, their final collaboration with Gamble & Huff, or anyone else for that matter. "Energy of Love" is a positive midtempo statement about finding the power of love, which didn't attract many buyers despite its message of goodwill. "How Can a Nice Girl Like You" made a little noise as a single with its reverse psychology lyrics, Little Sonny's charming, dragging tenor, and the Intruders' glowing harmonies. The Philly natives sparkle on four remakes: Marvin Gaye's "Jan," William DeVaughn's "Be Thankful for What You Got," Mary Wells' "What's Easy for Two Is So Hard for One," and Paul Simons "Rainy Days and Mondays"; they do justice to all, sounding especially frisky on DeVaughn's hit. "Plain Old Fashion Girl," co-written by Cary Gilbert, slams big city babes and gives props to old-fashioned country gals. Little Sonny shows his MOR skills on "Lonely, Lonely." The inspiring but mellow "Everybody Is a Star" grooves like "Be Thankful for What You Got," probably because John Davis produced both numbers. "Be on Time" is the only bummer; it must have been recorded for some type of community project, as it's a five-minute lecture about the virtues of being prompt for work, functions, dates, etc.
