Connors began to focus more on R&B material in the mid 1970s after signing with Buddah Records. He scored several US hits with songs featuring guest vocalists such as Michael Henderson, Jean Carn, and Phyllis Hyman. The most successful of these was "You Are My Starship, featuring Henderson in 1976.

The track "Bubbles" is one of my favorite on "You Are My Starship" LP. The tracks screams luxury Summer. Check out all the talented people who contributed and played on the LP!
