Billie Calvin and Brenda Evans left in 1973 and were replaced by Virginia McDonald ("Vee"), Tyrone Barkley ("Lil Ty"), Tyrone Douglas ("Big Ty") and Calvin "Doc" Stephenson. The group left Motown and followed Norman Whitfield to Whitfield Records in 1975. Virginia McDonald and Tyrone Douglas left, and Yvonne Stevens (aka Taka Boom) joined. The late '70s line-up often included musicians from Whitfield's other group, Rose Royce. Joe Harris, Marcy Thomas, Melvin Stewart and Lloyd Williams are who appear on the group's last album.
