This is a transitional album for the duo. Its sound is dominated by the blue-eyed soul for which they'd become famous, but toward the end there are some stylistic change of paces. The big hit here, "Rich Girl," is one of the pair's best Motown pastiches; it was reputedly inspired by Errol Wetson, heir to the hamburger fortune. Hall seems to have felt, rightly, that "Rich Boy" didn't quite have the same ring.
