Commodores ‎– Goin’ To The Bank (1986)

After over a decade at Motown, the Commodores moved to Mercury/PolyGram with 1986’s United. By that time, the group’s lineup consisted of British singer J.D. Nicholas (a Heatwave graduate who came on board in 1984) and original members Walter Orange (lead vocals, drums), William King (percussion, trumpet, synthesizers), and Milan Williams (keyboards). Lionel Richie (who was selling millions of records as a solo artist), Thomas McClary, and Ronald LaPread were all gone.

United was the twelfth studio album by the Commodores, released as the follow-up to their extremely successful album Nightshift from the previous year. This album included one of The Commodores’ last significant hits in “Goin’ to the Bank”, and it has been the group’s last major charting album to date, even though they went on to release several albums since. “Goin’ to the Bank” climbed to number two on Billboard’s R&B singles chart.
