After the departure of Earl Johnson in the summer of 1978, Moxy would not record a new album until Bill Wade got Earl Johnson and Buddy Caine back into the studio in 1999 for Moxy V. This album would also have the 3rd line-up change for a lead singer with the addition of Brian Maxim. In regards to the album itself and the singing of Mike Reno, Earl Johnson stated: "Under The Lights", wasn't even really a Moxy album. Mike Reno has a great voice, but he just wasn't a hard-edged singer". The album was re-released as Thinking About You (As Mike Reno and Moxy) in 1980. (en)
