Edwin Starr-George Kerr.

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.?

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.

Its true, George talked about it in his Q&A session at Blackpool a couple of years ago...

 

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'

George has just replied to my question, yes it is Earl Van Dyke

So was he the Mr Lucky who sang that wonderful record called "Born To Love You" on Stardom?
