In 1972, the group had success with their cover of musician Kris Kristofferson's ballad, "Help Me Make It Through the Night". Among the songs they would record that wounded up on the album included a funk-oriented cover of Bill Withers' "Who Is She (And What Is She to You)?

Porter had picked the song out from Weatherly's publishing company.

Knight recorded her lead vocal in one take at Mo West Studios, with parts of the background by the group already done.

Knight licensed her name to her son, Shanga Hankerson, in 1999 to use in the restaurants but considered ending the agreement in 2009 because of "mismanagement" of the business.
