While trawling through the net,I came across an article from 2 years ago where George Kerr claims to have wrote and produced Edwin Starrs-i have faith in you.Is this so,as he is not credited in any way on the label.?

It is true .. he put his wife's name on it for 'contractual' reasons

Have you got a link to the article you could post ?

Hi Andy,it's in my top ten of all time and I've only just found this out.I suppose it's not particularly an article as such, but if you look under Edwin Starr I have faith in you and play it,George says it was him who wrote and produced it. The stuff he was behind is endless. Chris.

Would you know who is playing the piano on this as it sounds like Earl Van Duke.

Jeannine Greer .... Maiden name ... 

As I recall George was signed to Jobete as a songwriter which was the contractual reason for putting his wife's name on it

it was also why any arranger credits, as on the Maltese 45s, were attributed to Mr Lucky .. George 'in disguise'
