A selft-ttled album followed a year later.

In 1978 they released 'Loving Is Living', for the Portrait imprint.

The album was help launched by Stevie Wonder, who contributed harmonica chores on the track 'You'.

On the cover notes. Stevie wrote: 'If it your desire to experience: Lyrics of sincerity, song and harmony, family in unity, your heart being warmed by universal and intimate loves, then share with me the fulfilment of that desire by experiencing the McCrary family.'
