Girl Don’t Make Me Wait

First recorded by Bunny Sigler (1967).
Hit album version by Pattie Brooks & The Simon Orchestra (1977).

From the wiki: “‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’ was written by Leon Huff (‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’, ‘Love Train’, ‘Now That We Found Love’), and first recorded in 1967 by Bunny Sigler. Both Huff and Sigler, along with Kenny Gamble, would later figure large in the development of the 1970s ‘Philly Sound’. Sigler first recorded for the V-Tone Records label in 1959. By 1967, he was recording for Parkway Records with whom he released ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’. Sigler would go on to work extensively with Salsoul Records and the Salsoul Orchestra. Pattie Brooks covered ‘Girl Don’t Make Me Wait’ on her 1977 hit album, Love Shook. Brooks’ first career break came in 1968 when she auditioned for the chorus on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. In the next decade she became a sought-after backing singer, appearing on The Bobby Darin Show and touring with, among others, Helen Reddy.”
