Based on my knowledge Gary had solo recordings prior to this on the Diamond label sometime in the 1960's.
And given the disco-era's knack for flooding the market with anything that brought in a few bucks it's even more surprising that by 1979 he was all but gone.
With that record on the charts I had the opportunity to travel the country with what was then called "The Dick Clark Caravan Of Stars." After that I worked with my band around the country which at that time was called "Gary Criss and The Crystals" clever huh !.
