By 1976, Seals & Crofts' appeal began to decline; their albums failed to sell as well, and they scored their last Top 40 hit in 1978 with "You're the Love." Warner dropped them shortly after their 1980 LP, The Longest Road, but by this time both Seals and Crofts were more interested in devoting themselves fully to the Baha'i religion they had converted to back in 1969. The two have reunited occasionally at Baha'i gatherings and for a short 1991-1992 tour; Crofts has lived in several different countries, while Seals moved to a Costa Rican coffee farm in 1980. However, the pair did get together in 2004 to record their first album in over two decades, Traces, featuring re-recordings of several of their biggest hits as well as new and previously unreleased material. It should also be noted that Seals' brother Dan became a prominent country singer during the '80s after leaving the duo England Dan & John Ford Coley. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
