Born Ray Buckner and part of the family group the Buckner brothers, this is one of his last recordings and ironically also his biggest hit. The Buckner Brothers consisted of Ray and two of his younger brothers, Clarence and Charles. They had a wonderful 45 out on Sanla records in the late 60s that unfortunately flopped. However, this did not deter Ray from the music business. He was soon in action with his own solo career, both as an artist and as a writer. He struck a deal with the newly formed Playboy records (yes, a division of the magazine) in the early 70s and rounded up some local Chicago talent to help him record the material, that was co-written by himself. This is by far the biggest hit, which managed not only to get national play but also was featured in the Billboard charts.
