    "Warm and Tender Love / I would if I could", Enjoy 2013 released in January 1965 (USA), Island WI 218 released in 1965 (UK)

    Joe Haywood is believed to have written "Warm and Tender Love" although the official credit doesn't name him - not particularly unusual for the time.

    The track is credited to Bobby Robinson - full name: Morgan Clyde Robinson, owner of Harlem's "Bobby's Records And Tape Center".

    The guy's name -with many alterations - Barry Robinson, M C Robinson, Morgan Robinson, Robert Morgan, and Tobinson to name just a few - features on many records as songwriter and/or producer..

    Now, it is possible that, as an influential guy in Harlem's music scene, he got other folk's songs published in return for the writing credit, but if he had done it SO many times, I think we would have heard about it by now.

    I reckon Bobby was the song writer. He also produced it ;):cool:
