In 1974, Douglas was recruited by Midland International Records via an ad in Showbiz magazine: label vice president/record producer Eddie O’Loughlin had heard the UK hit single “Doctor’s Orders” by Sunny and was seeking a female vocalist to cut the track for the U.S. market. Douglas’s audition led to a five-year contract and her version of “Doctor’s Orders” became a hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard disco chart, #9 R&B, and #11 on the Hot 100; the single also reached #4 in France.

Among the Blue Notes’ most important and successful recordings are love songs such as 1972’s “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” (#1 Billboard R&B, #3 pop), their breakout single, “I Miss You” (#7 R&B, #58 pop), “The Love I Lost” (#1 R&B, #7 pop, 1973) and socially conscious songs such as “Wake Up Everybody” (#1 R&B, #12 pop) and “Bad Luck” (#4 R&B, #15 pop), both in 1975. “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA on November 21, 1972 “Bad Luck” holds the record for the longest-running number-one hit on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart: 11 weeks.

A 1976 remake of “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Motown artist Thelma Houston was a number-one hit on the US pop chart; her version is one of the defining recordings of the discoera. The Blue Notes’ version on the album, “Wake Up Everybody” was not released as a single in the USA at the time, but proved to be the group’s biggest hit in the UK (#5) when released there as a single in 1977. The track was finally issued as a single in the US on 12-inch in 1979, coupled with “Bad Luck”. The group recorded four albums with Gamble & Huff, all of them going gold (over 500,000 copies), according to RIAA, including To Be True (#26, Billboard Top 40 albums) and Wake Up Everybody (#9), both in 1975. Wake Up Everybody and a greatest hits compilation released in 1976, Collector’s Item, have now sold over a million copies.
