Another major (and iconic) hit for the legendary outfit, their fourth U.S. #1 (Cash Box and Record World - both 1 week, 23 April 1977; Billboard - 1 week, 07 May 1977; and Radio & Records - 3 weeks, 01 April-15 April 1977). The last two lines of the last verse always reminded me, in its feel, of the ad campaign for Roach Motel, a US brand of roach trap - "Roaches check in, but they don't check out." Could only get as high as #69 in US Billboard, #75 in Cash Box, and #76 (?) in Record World. Managed a small comeback with this number, peaking at #15 in both US Billboard and Cash Box, #13 in Record World and #20 in Radio & Records - and a #1 country hit in the States. That this charted here contrasted with fellow Gordon Mills client Engelbert Humperdinck's "After The Lovin' " which was Top 10 in the US but didn't do a bit of business in the UK. Would be a forerunner to the country direction Mr. Jones will take on disc for the next decade.
