"Go Now" is a 1964 song composed by Larry Banks and Milton Bennett. Bessie Banks originally performed this song, taking it to number forty on the Cash Box R&B singles chart. "Go Now" was made popular internationally later in 1964 when a group from Birmingham named The Moody Blues recorded it, with Denny Laine on guitar and lead vocals.

Vixen is a studio album released by Gloria Jones in 1976. This album features songs written by Marc Bolan, as well as the only two confirmed Bolan and Jones co-writes, "High", and "Cry Baby". It also features an updated version of "Tainted Love", which Gloria originally recorded in 1964.

Gloria Richetta Jones (October 19, 1945, Cincinnati, Ohio) is an American singer and songwriter. She recorded the 1964 northern soul song, "Tainted Love", later a hit for the British synth-pop duo, Soft Cell.
Jones first met Marc Bolan of T. Rex in 1969 while performing in Hair (Los Angeles cast). While touring in Europe, Bolan and Jones met for the second time at the Speakeasy in London. In 1972, she was recommended by Warner Brothers Bob Regere to sing backing vocals behind T. Rex at the Winterland in San Francisco.
Soon after joining T. Rex, Jones and Bolan became romantically involved. Together, they had a son, Rolan Bolan. She sang backing vocals and played clavinet with T. Rex from 1973 to 1977. Jones released an album in 1976, called Vixen, featuring several songs written by Bolan, and he also was the producer.
In 1977, Jones worked with the group Gonzales, producing several of their singles, and also penning the disco hit, "Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet" for the group. She toured the UK with Gonzales, first on the Bob Marley tour, and then with Osibisa.
She was the driver of the car, an Austin Mini, that crashed and killed Bolan on 16 September 1977. Jones nearly died in the accident, and was in the hospital for several days afterwards. She did not learn of Bolan's death until the day of his funeral. When she was well enough to leave the hospital, she soon found that Bolan's fans had looted what was left of her and Marc's possessions, and since she and Marc were not legally married, she was not entitled to any inheritance, except for £10,000 which Marc left her in his will, drafted in 1973.
