Isaac Hayes did an incredible 12-minute version of the song that I loved, and many years later I got to tell him so when he performed it on one of my television specials.

When Angie told me she was pregnant, I was so surprised and overjoyed at the prospect of having a child that I completely forgot about all that and began doing everything I could to keep our marriage going. 'When Nikki was a young child, I couldn't really tell if there was something wrong with her, even though I definitely felt something about her was off,' he said I really loved the nurses in the preemie ward, and since they had been calling the baby Nikki, we decided to name her that.
They began looking at all the preemies (premature babies) and one said to the other, ‘God, if I had one like that, I’d just throw it away.’ Completely losing it, I started to scream at them. Nikki’s situation was so touch-and-go that she spent the first three months of her life in an incubator.

At about that time, a record label offered to put up the money for me to do an album of instrumental versions of songs Hal and I had written, like Don’t Make Me Over, Walk On By, Anyone Who Had a Heart, Wives And Lovers, and 24 Hours From Tulsa.
