European-American collaborations were not uncommon during the disco and post-disco eras. Donna Summer's work with Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte was most prominent and groundbreaking, while Change was among the most noteworthy yet somewhat overlooked international acts to spring up during the early ‘80s. Driven by Guadeloupian producer Jacques Fred Petrus and Italian partner Mario Malavasi, Change is most commonly associated with “The Glow of Love,” a 1980 single featuring Luther Vandross over a wistful Chic-like production. Through a series of minor transformations a shifting array of vocalists and behind-the-scenes associates the group released 11 other charting singles from 1980 through 1985, as well as six charting albums, two of which peaked in the Top10 of Billboard’s R&B Albums chart.
