Rex Smith came to the fame as the heartthrob lead of the 1979 NBC-TV movie Sooner or Later. His same-named LP is basically a soundtrack album featuring the pop/rock songs he performed in the movie. The Bobby Hart/Stephen Lawrence ballad "You Take My Breath Away" was issued as a single. It went gold, reaching number ten on the pop charts in the summer of 1979. It can be found on Rhino's Super Hits of the '70s: Have a Nice Day, Vol. 22.
