It would prove to be his breakout album. “Girl You Need A Change of Mind” was one of the first disco/dance records. Album sales began to build rapidly especially in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Because of its length (7:33 min.), Motown released an edited version for radio. The album had been out for over six months before the radio caught on. But it eventually rose to number 13 R&B in the early months of 1973. Its success in the clubs would lay the groundwork for his upcoming number 1 Pop & R&B smash, “Keep On Truckin’“.
