Record label of Australian release:

This was KC & The Sunshine Band’s first love ballad, and the last of their incredible five #1 hits in the United States. Like all their hits, it was written by their bass player/producer Rick Finch and frontman Harry Wayne Casey.
In a Songfacts interview, Casey told the story: “Near the end of 1978, I was kind of anti-disco believe it or not, and I was trying to change a little bit from That’s The Way (I Like It) and Shake Your Booty and all that.”
“I was in the studio waiting for the next session to start, I’m sitting at the piano and I just start playing these chords, and I remember how beautiful they were. I decided that was the song I was going to record that day, and that became Please Don’t Go.
