"I Need Your Loving" - Donald Gardner & Dee Dee Ford (1962)

Wikipedia - "Donald Gardner (born May 9, 1931) is an American rhythm and blues singer, songwriter, and drummer. His records included the 1962 pop hit 'I Need Your Loving', with Dee Dee Ford. ... When the Sonotones played at the Smalls Paradise club in Harlem, New York, they were heard by blues performer Arthur Crudup, who recommended them to the Fire record label owner Bobby Robinson. He produced a song written by Gardner, 'I Need Your Loving' (also known as 'Need Your Lovin'), a 'gospel-drenched', call-and-response number in the mold of Ike & Tina Turner, and the song became their biggest hit, rising to number 4 on the Billboard R&B chart in 1962 and number 20 on the pop chart. ..."
