In "Have You Been Making Out, O.K.?" and "Funny How Time Slips Away" he asks her whether she is doing fine since she has a new lover? "Your Love Is Like The Morning Sun" has the protagonist miss his loved one, despite the fact that they are no longer together.
* CallBack: Near the end of "Your Love Is Like The Morning Sun" Green sings "let's stay together", which is a shout-out to his previous album ''Music/LetsStayTogether''.

* QuestioningTitle: "Have You Been Making Out O.K.?"
* RecordProducer: Al Green, Willie Mitchell.
* SiameseTwinSongs: "Call Me" and "Have You Been Making Out O.K.?" are both break-up songs where the protagonist tells the woman she can still count on him and wonders if she is doing fine. They follow right after one another on the tracklist. "Funny How Time Slips Away" is a similar song.
