1971: I’m Still Waiting By Diana Ross

Composed by Deke Richards. Recorded by Diana Ross for her second studio album Everything is Everything. The song was only intended as an album track. However, BBC Radio 1 disc jockey, Tony Blackburn, played it alot on his morning programme and persuaded record label EMI (which at the time issued all Tamla Motown material in the UK) to release it as a single. It went on to spend four weeks at No.1 in the UK. Genre: Soul.
