Despite earning respectable sales, Jesse Colin Young's solo albums had failed to generate the kind of hits that could have consolidated his career. Love on the Wing, his first studio album in two years, was co-produced by Felix Pappalardiwith whom Young had worked Orca - Back To The Jungle EP some of the Youngbloods albums. Warner released the title track, a lovely Reggae Move - Simple Simon - Reggae Move written by Blue Hazelhurst, and "Higher Higher," the leadoff track, another of Young's I-want-to-stay-home-with-my-family- and-not-go-on-the-road songs, as singles, but only the latter saw any radio or sales response, and even that wasn't enough to make the Top Love on the Wing was a low-key effort with an undercurrent of sadness -- the singer seemed disappointed with the domestic life that had given him satisfaction before, and he certainly hadn't warmed to the music business.
Unfortunately, short of a career breakthrough, "Workin"' on the road was the only way he had of getting his music out. At the same time, working with the same group of musicians he had been using for years, he seemed to have reached the end of their musical development, even with the added horn and string arrangements on some tracks. Love on the Wing delivered more of the same at a time when Young needed to try something different, and that was reflected in a slight fall-off in sales, after which he parted ways with Warner Brothers.
