Artist: Mick Jackson
Author: Mick Jackson/Dave Jackson/Elmar Krohn
Label: Atco
Year: 1978

From Yorkshire. Recorded in Germany. Apart from his name and this track, Mick has absolutely nothing in common with The Jacksons. He wrote this with Stevie Wonder in mind. At the Midem music festival early in '78, the Jacksons' manager heard, copied and rush-recorded a Jacksons version. Mick's and Michael's almost came out simultaneously.
