Talking about City Of Angels, Billy recalls, My own experience was the inspiration for the concept behind the album. When I got hired by The Miracles, I left Baltimore for Los Angeles and it was like a whole other world! Even the stewardesses on the plane wore hot pants and once I got to . it seemed like every other person I met was gay! I said, ‘I’ve got to write about this.

In 1973, the Miracles, with Griffin, re-emerged with the critically acclaimed album, Renaissance – their first without Smokey Robinson on lead vocals, which included the Marvin Gaye composition, "I Love You Secretly", "What Is a Heart Good For" (the intended first single), and the charting single,"Don't Let It End (Til You Let It Begin). The group immediately had problems after signing with Columbia, starting with the release of their first Columbia single, "Spy For Brotherhood". Expecting controversy from the single as well as possible threats from the FBI, Columbia pulled the song from the airwaves. The group failed to have a hit during their short Columbia run and in 1978, Pete Moore decided to retire from the road while Billy Griffin wanted to return to his solo career, leading to the group to disband.
