In the City is the third album by American soul/R&B group Tavares, released in 1975 on the Capitol label. Like the group's previous album Hard Core Poetry, it was produced by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter and was well received by critics. Lead single "It Only Takes a Minute" was Tavares' most successful to that point, becoming their second to top the R&B chart and reaching #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album includes two cover versions; the Dan Hartman-penned "Free Ride" (a 1973 top 20 hit for The Edgar Winter Group) and "Nothing You Can Do", which originally appeared on the Average White Band's 1974 album AWB. In the City peaked at #8 on the R&B albums chart (their highest-placing album on this chart) and #26 on the pop chart.
