Don'tcha Change It




This week in 1977 the new Gladys Knight and the Pips single, "Baby Don't Change Your Mind", entered the U.K. charts at #33. Written and produced by Van "The Hustle" McCoy, who also wrote David Ruffin's "Walk Away from Love", "Baby" would be the soundtrack to one sizzler of hot Summer , peaking at #4 in the U.K. and #10 on the US R and B charts.

First recorded by The Stylistics in 1976:
