Released in October 18, 1977, this would be the last Jacksons album released as a joint venture between Epic Records and Philadelphia International Records. By 1978, The Jacksons would record primarily with Epic and would return to mainstream success with their next album, Destiny. This is considered their lowest-selling album next to 2300 Jackson Street. The album peaked at No. 63 on the Billboard 200, and at No. 11 on the Billboard R&B albums chart and sold over half a million copies worldwide.[3]

Goin' Places did spawn the disco-hit "Different Kind of Lady" written by the group. The song gave the brothers the confidence to write and produce an entire album by themselves.

Goin' Places Tour

To promote the album a series of concerts were booked early in 1978. The Goin' Places Tour began on January 22, 1978 and ended on May 13, 1978.
