Dobie Gray had a huge success in 1965 with the number "The In Crowd" and is probably still best known for that performance. It is possible that Tom Jans, who wrote "Loving Arms," recorded the number before Dobie Gray. He certainly made the first demo in 1971 and a commercial version some time in 1973 during his sessions at Nashville's Quadraphonic Studios. This was released as a single in 1973 (A&M 1496-s) and as part of the LP "Tom Jans" in 1974.
