Sheila Ferguson recalled that “the track was performed to me by Kenny Gamble on the piano in 1973 and I threw a tantrum. I screamed and yelled and mentioned I’d by no means sing it. I believed it was ridiculously insulting to be given such a easy track and that it took no expertise to sing it.


We did do it and several other million copies later, I spotted that he knew greater than me.” The track is exclusive in that each sentence is a query, heightening the general impact and emotion. Within the movie Kill Invoice: Quantity 2, Invoice cites this track as his “favourite soul track of the 70s”.
