January 27 @ 8:00 PM PST
While still with Tower of Power, he recorded his first solo album Pray for the Lion for Warner Bros. Records in 1974. At the end of 1975, Williams left the band and returned to his solo projects. Initially signing with Motown Records in 1975, he later moved to ABC Records in 1977 (which was then purchased by MCA Records in 1979). With producer Frank Wilson at the helm and songwriters such as Judy Wieder, Clay Drayton, Terry McFadden, and John Footman, over the next four years, he scored ten chart hits, including “Shoo Doo FuFu Ooh”, “Choosing You”, “You Got Me Running”, “Love Hurt Me Love Healed Me”, “Here’s to the Lady,” and “Midnight Girl”. Williams recorded four more albums from 1977 to 1980: Choosing You, his first gold LP; Spark of Love (contains the hits “You Got Me Running”, and “Cause I Love You” as well as “Midnight Girl”); Love Current; “Taking Chances” and Let’s Do It Today.
