As he did on "If I Can't Have You," producer Freddie Perren employed the rhythm section of Bob "Boogie" Bowles (guitar), Scott Edwards (bass) and James Gadson (drums), and recorded it as his own Los Angeles studio, which he called Mom & Pop's Company Store. Talking about Perron and working on the Tavares tracks, Edwards told us
: "He knew how to do a production, and he wanted the musicians to come up with a good track. But he was always listening. He always had something in front of you that you could look at, but note wise, he knew by the time the session was over the notes would not be nowhere near what he had written. So he wrote very little, which was good, because the musicians knew that his music always had a little more musical involvement, which meant you could be more musical in your playing."
