Any Way You Like It is the fourth album by Thelma Houston, released late October 1976 on Tamla Records. The album features energetic disco songs with fierce vocal performances by Houston on side 1, while side 2 focuses on ballads. It includes the major hit single, "Don't Leave Me This Way", Houston's remake of the Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes song, zooming to No. 1 in the US charts. In the US, "If It's the Last Thing I Do", a track originally recorded in 1972, was chosen for the second single release on MoWest, while Europe had an edited version of the Stevie Wonder cover, "Don't Know Why I Love You", produced and arranged by Michael Lovesmith. A re-recorded version of "Don't Leave Me This Way" was #19 on the dance charts in December 1994. The album was arranged by Arthur G. Wright, Michael Lovesmith, Harold Johnson, Paul Riser, Clayton Ivey, Ted Stovall, Michael Omartian, Perry Botkin, Jr. and Terry Woodford.
