One of the takes is on Original Salsoul Classics: The 20th Anniversary and is sometimes found on CD reissues of the LP. Another passion-soaked ballad, "What Now," a Curtis Mayfield song, received radio play as an album track. The upbeat "We're Getting Stronger The Longer We Stay" has a smokin' rhythm break. A Satoshi Tomiie remix of "Dreamin'" issued by Salsoul/The Right Stuff/EMI topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart on December 9, 2000.
