  • This was originally just an album track, however the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show DJ Tony Blackburn, who was a massive Diana Ross fan, had other ideas. He told Motown Records that if they released it as a single, he would make it his "Record Of The Week," playing it every morning for 5 days. The label did, Blackburn kept his word, and the result was Diana Ross' first UK #1 as a solo artist. It was not a major hit in the US, reaching only #63. However when Diana Ross performed the number on her UK tour, she was amazed at the reaction of the British public and even more astounded when she received standing ovations.
  • This was Motown's biggest selling single in the UK until the Commodore's 1978 smash hit "Three Times A Lady."
