In the U.S., the only single released from the album was the title song, written by
Barry Gibband Robin Gibband originally featured on the Bee Gees' 1975 album "Main Course". It was a moderate pop hit, peaking at #23 on the Billboard Hot 100, but did much better on the country (#5) and adult contemporary(seventh of ten #1 singles) charts.
The album also included versions of the traditional song "
Greensleeves" and The Beatles' " The Long and Winding Road" (the ending track), as well as "Who Are You Now?", originally featured in the 1973 movie "Hurry Up, or I'll Be 30" [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070201/ IMDb] .
